Evolutionary congruence (losers) vs ecological adaptation (winners)

Nuclear and Plastid DNA Sequence-based Molecular Phylogeography of Salvadora oleoides (Salvadoraceae) in Punjab, India Reveals Allopatric Speciation in Anthropogenic Islands Due to Agricultural Expansion This is the first DNA-sequence based phylogeographic assessment of Salvadora in the world. Sequence based phylogeographic assessment of tropical tree species is a relative rarity and in India, such investigations are almost non-existent.   Kalevi Kull: Censorship & Royal Society Evo Event Nobody wants to belong to the party of losers. One of the best strategies…

New Testament Book Cover Refutes Theistic Evolution

Video of Biology of the Book Goats, bookworms, a monk’s kiss: Biologists reveal the hidden history of ancient gospels Collins already had developed a method to identify ancient species by differences in the amino acid sequences of collagen and other proteins preserved in fossils. See: Protein power by Robert F. Service …methods to sequence amino acids lag behind DNA sequencing. The report of 300 million year old proteins is based on ridiculous theories that failed to include what was known about…

Measuring energy vs human idiocy (social science)

Summary: The “… universal applicability for determination of various targets such as metal ions, miRNAs, DNAs and proteins…” is the key to understanding the differences in the energy-dependent assembly of cell types with fixed amino acid substitutions that link natural selection for energy-dependent changes in base pairs from atoms to ecosystems in all living genera. Richard Feynman complains about all the different units that are used to measure the single concept of Energy in this snippet  from one of his…

Summary: The entire evolution of the microbial world and the virus world, and the interaction between microbes and viruses and other life forms have been left out of the Modern Synthesis…— Eugene Koonin My comment: Viruses are not life forms. They steal the quantized energy that links sunlight to viral latency in the context of everything known to all serious scientists about the fact that Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction See for comparison: Olfaction Warps Visual…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (8)

Summary: The role of vitamin C in the treatment of pain: new insights links what is known about the “superfood” Spirulina (blue-green algae), which is grown in marine and freshwater environments, to the stability of all organized genomes via its biological activities, such as antioxidant, anti-diabetic, cholesterol-controlling and insulin resistance effects. The biological activities are energy-dependent and they link the anti-entropic virucidal energy of sunlight to all biodiversity via the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction and microRNAs in plants and animals.…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (5)

Summary: Emmy Noethe’s theorems were developed in the early 1900’s. Richard Feynman inadvertently or purposefully alluded to them as examples of human idiocy. Discover Magazine resurrected the examples of human idiocy in a 2017 article. For comparison, Choi et al., (2017) support the claims that intercellular and interkingdom communication is energy-dependent and controlled by the metabolism of food energy to pheromones. It is obvious that pheromones biophysically constrain the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA. That fact links everything currently known…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (3) Summary: Nobody wants to belong to the party of losers. One of the best strategies in such a case is evidently an interpretation of the change as a gradual accumulation of knowledge while their work has always been at the cutting edge. — Kalevi Kull Microbiota Manipulations …modified an endogenous Bacteroides promoter sequence to be inducible—it could be turned on or off in mice by adding or omitting an effector molecule in the animals’…

See first: Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (2) Emily Balskus Pins Down the Chemistry and Metabolism of Human Microbiomes Summary: The chemistry and metabolism of all microbiomes is food energy-dependent and pheromone-controlled via the physiology of reproduction. See: Feedback loops link odor and pheromone signaling with reproduction My comment to The Scientist: …trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline (Hyp) dehydratase, a newly discovered member of an abundant family of proteins, produced by gut bacteria, known as the glycyl radical enzymes, helps in metabolizing trans-Hyp, an…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (2)

Summary: The mind does not exist in nature. It is a manifestation of how ecological variation must be linked to the creation of food energy-dependent pheromone-controlled ecological adaptations. Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (1) The energy-dependent de novo creation of all receptors is biophysically constrained. See: Channel opening and gating mechanism in AMPA-subtype glutamate receptors This was reported as: Scientists capture first image of major brain receptor in action Defects in glutamate receptors, or the processes they mediate, are implicated…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (1)

Summary: The hitchhiking, the epistasis, and the dynamics of adapting populations are energy-dependent and biophysically constrained in the context of RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry. The virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA links mutations to all pathology in all living genera. An upper limit on the functional fraction of the human genome For the human population to maintain a constant size from generation to generation, an increase in fertility must compensate for the reduction in the mean fitness of the population caused,…
