RNA-mediated toxicity

Light-activated feedback loops vs self-organization of ecosystems

John Lieff has been trying to update his ridiculous misrepresentations of biologically-based cause and effect to match the accurate representations we made in a section on molecular epigenetics in our 1996 Hormones and Behavior review. From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior Nothing can stop him, but this will provide the next source for material that he must borrow as if he learned about it somewhere else.

Johns Hopkins researchers support mutation-driven evolution

See also: Harvard researchers support young earth creationism Stem cell divisions, somatic mutations, cancer etiology, and cancer prevention March 24, 2017 (Science) There are at least four sources of R mutations in normal cells: quantum effects on base pairing (30), mistakes made by polymerases (31), hydrolytic deamination of bases (32), and damage by endogenously produced reactive oxygen species or other metabolites (33). The last of these could theoretically be reduced by the administration of antioxidant drugs (34). The effects of…

Sal Giardina: apologetics revisited

March 26, 2017 Sal Giardina wrote: “James, I appreciate your responding to my posts but I would prefer that your input would be related to the content of the post.” My reply: If you do not want people to learn how my claims are linked to yours, please tell me that you intend to continue with apologetics rather the concept of energy as information. Apologetics: … the religious discipline of defending or proving the truth of religious doctrines through systematic…

Who will kill the billion dollar baby? Bill Gates or Donald Trump

Bill Gates is set to meet with the President on Monday. [March 20, 2017] Both men know that virus-driven energy theft is the biggest threat humanity has ever faced. The threat arose in the context of wasted US government funding and wasted funding from philanthropists who supported the CRISPR gene-editing technology. For comparison, The Penrose Institute appears to be prepared to establish itself as a refuge for serious scientists who have been cast out of academia for their failure to…

Thinking about energy is not radical re-thinking

The brain: a radical rethink is needed to understand it …Optogenetics, a technique that uses genetic modification of neurons so that their electrical activity can be controlled with light pulses – can help us to explore their specific contribution to brain function. Optogenetics links the speed of light on contact with water to what is known about all energy-dependent cell type differentiation in all individuals of all living genera. Serious scientists, for example, have linked angstroms to ecosystems in all living…

Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (2)

See also: Energy-dependent pheromone-controlled entropy (1) Let’s make peer review scientific …peer review is often biased and inefficient. It is occasionally corrupt, sometimes a charade, an open temptation to plagiarists. Even with the best of intentions, how and whether peer review identifies high-quality science is unknown. It is, in short, unscientific. The androgynous baby-faced boy or girl pictured among those wearing pink “crotch” hats appears to representing others at the March for Women. The sign may also be representing the…

Sunlight: the essence of precision medicine and world peace

See for review: The essence of precision medicine See for comparison: We not only reject Trump’s values and policies, we also renew our commitment to a future where both the church and the academy will foster attitudes and actions so that human beings and the whole of creation can thrive. We join our hearts, our minds, our voices, and our actions with those of religious believers–Christians, Jews, Muslims, and people of all faiths, as well as with secular people of…

The essence of precision medicine: drug targets or healthy longevity?

The molecular epigenetics of healthy longevity Trichome, a Functional Diversity Phenotype in Plant Abstract: Trichomes play a very important role in the process of evolution for plant which are epidermal appendages covering the surface of plants. In this paper, some progress concerning the genes responsible for trichome formation is presented for monocots and dicotyledons plants. Meanwhile, the special structures and physiological functions of trichome are briefly introduced, such as reflectance, energy balance, ultraviolet protection, drought resistance, gas exchange, insect resistance…
