See: The tipping point (revisited): 84,000 publications (2) Re: I’m telling you what testing to order. You’re telling people about gun control. For comparison, most science journalists also could care less about proper testing. That causes them to promote ridiculous theories.

Are Kavanaugh’s accusers terrorists?

Summary: Christine Blasey Ford appears to be a Stanford-based pseudoscientist. See for comparison also: Viruses are a dominant driver of protein adaptation in mammals from Stanford-based serious scientists …viruses have driven close to 30% of all adaptive amino acid changes in the part of the human proteome conserved within mammals. and MicroRNAs: regulators of neuronal Are Kavanaugh’s accusers terrorists?

Cross species transfer of genes and ecological adaptation

Horizontal transfer of BovB and L1 retrotransposons in eukaryotes Contrary to the belief of exclusive vertical inheritance, our results with L1s suggest multiple ancient HT events in eukaryotes, mainly among aquatic species, and possible HT into the early therian mammal lineage. The rapid speciation following the split of theria and australosphenids (monotremes), 160–191 MYA, coincides Cross species transfer of genes and ecological adaptation

The future of biology

More than 1200 blog posts at RNA-mediated.com appear to be causing problems with new posts. As I continue to post to this domain, for review see: See: Natural models inspire future therapeutics The future of biology requires all pseudoscientists to abandon their ridiculous theories.

Stem cell memory is biophysically constrained (2) (2014)

If stem cell memory is biophysically constrained, by nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled amino acid substitutions, we can expect to find experimental evidence that conserved molecular mechanisms link the basic principles of nucleosome retention in plants to nucleosome retention in mouse and human sperm. That finding would support a model of epigenetic inheritance by nucleosomes between generations, across Stem cell memory is biophysically constrained (2) (2014)

Chromosomal rearrangements reported as genomic rearrangements (2014)

The Architecture of a Scrambled Genome Reveals Massive Levels of Genomic Rearrangement during Development Genome-wide DNA rearrangements are most exaggerated in ciliates, particularly in the model organism Oxytricha trifallax, which programs not only DNA deletion, but also total reorganization, through RNA-mediated events (Fang et al., 2012; Nowacki et al., 2008). Reported as: In one of Chromosomal rearrangements reported as genomic rearrangements (2014)

Late emerging epigenetic effects

The effects of perinatal testosterone exposure on the DNA methylome of the mouse brain are late-emerging Excerpt:  “…the emergence of sex differences in the brain may be a gradual process that is cemented over the organism’s life. Our data provide a new perspective by showing that most sex differences in CpG methylation are dynamic and Late emerging epigenetic effects
