Epigenetic facts vs variable recombination theories

6/14/13 Nutrient-dependent/pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution: a model ….the model represented here is consistent with what is known about the epigenetic effects of ecologically important nutrients and pheromones on the adaptively evolved behavior of species from microbes to man. Minimally, this model can be compared to any other factual representations of epigenesis and epistasis for determination of the best scientific ‘fit’. 7/25/13 Jay R. Feierman: Variation is not nutrient availability and the something that is doing the selecting is not the individual…

Host-derived creation of all pathology (2 of 2)

Summary: All serious scientists know that all epigenetic diversity is food energy-dependent and biophysically constrained by the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction. See for comparison: Jay R. Feierman: “Variation is not nutrient availability and the something that is doing the selecting is not the individual organism. A feature of an educated person is to realize what they do not know. Sadly, you don’t know that you have an incorrect understanding [of] Darwinian biological evolution.” A Bacterial Messenger Molecule Extends Healthspan …indole,…

Your indifference is killing you and others (3)

Summary: The speed of light on contact with water links the creation of microRNAs to Optical control of membrane tethering and interorganellar communication at nanoscales MicroRNA flanking sequences are linked to all biodiversity via hydrogen-atom transfer in DNA base pairs in solution. The physiology of reproduction links energy-dependent changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance to the fixation of amino acid substitutions in supercoiled DNA. Supercoiled DNA protects all organized genomes from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA. See also: Combating…

Energy-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability (3)

Energy-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability (2) Energy-dependent epigenetic translation to mRNA stability (2) See for comparison this treatise on climate change packaged as information on the evolution of a flying snake. Fossil ‘winged serpent’ is a new species of ancient snake At the time that Zilantophis dwelled there, the site was a sinkhole surrounded by forest, attracting a variety of animals. The local fauna included ancient representatives of familiar North American creatures such as bears, beavers and salamanders. Others…

What is life without sunshine?

Summary: It seems likely that Schrodinger’s anti-entropic virucidal effect of sunlight will be linked to the RNA-mediated de novo creation of all organized genomes and the maintenance of the “spotless epigenome” in this presentation later today. If so, even theorists and other pseudoscientists who planned to “March for Science” will finally be seen in the context of Dobzhansky’s claims about the “…light of evolution.” Erasing Epigenetic Marks: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Epigenome Topics to be covered: The variety of…

Cytosis: Biology Content

  Help Me Write Some Biology Content Project Update #5: Cytosis: A Cell Biology Board Game by John Coveyou (Genius Games) Many of you have mentioned that you’d like to have an explanation of the biology behind Cytosis available… and I think that is an AWESOME plan. Every time I’ve taught the game to non-science players in the past, they say gameplay made even more sense (and was so much more enjoyable) when I explained the science as well. This…

Virulence and your UTI

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 Virulence: Take on the role of a virus competing to infect a host cell and replicate your viral components! If you have played this game, you probably know more about virulence than the researchers and journalists…

Young earth creationists refute theistic evolution

Every great scientific truth goes through three stages. First, people say it conflicts with the Bible. Next they say it has been discovered before. Lastly they say they always believed it. –Louis Agassiz The series about refutations of theistic evolution continues. Creationists and two publications in “Nature” support the claims of young earth creationists who cited: Holmes (1996)  Who rules the waves? – Viruses might just be bit players in the drama of the seas. Then again, they could be…
