Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (10)

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 (9)

Summary: Energy determines genome compaction because activity in the nucleus is energy-dependent. Chromatin chains link energy-dependent changes in base pairs from single nucleotide polymorphisms to fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in organized genomes via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction. It’s all about the base. Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (8) ChromEMT: Visualizing 3D chromatin structure and compaction in interphase and mitotic cells Excerpt 1) The chromatin structure of DNA determines genome compaction and activity in the nucleus. My comment:…

Epigenetic effects of stress by Bruce McEwen (1)

A rendering of how changes in an electron’s motion (bottom view) alter the scattering of light (top view), as measured in a new experiment that scattered more than 500 photons of light from a single electron. Previous experiments had managed to scatter no more than a few photons at a time. Credit: Extreme Light Laboratory|University of Nebraska-Lincoln Summary: In the early 1990’s, Bruce McEwen inspired my life’s works, which link the epigenetic effects of nutrient-stress and/or social stress to the fact…

From E. coli to monkeys and mankind: Theories vs models (2)

Dedicated to Dr. Tom Jordan and Priscilla Jordan on the day of their retirement from the Baptist ministry, May 28, 2017. They always encouraged me to learn more about the “Laws of Biology” and link the Laws from energy as information to all biodiversity on Earth via the physiology of reproduction.

What energy source do proteins prefer (2)

See first: What energy source do proteins prefer? Excerpt: …many developmentally important proteins display preference for mCpG-containing sequences.   How do proteins display a preference for anything except food and codon optimality? Natural selection for quantized food energy-dependent codon optimality links the structure and function of supercoiled DNA to protection from virus-driven energy theft. SARCASM ALERT: All life on Earth seems to have developed a preference for the energy in hydrogen atoms. For a historical perspective see: What is Life?…

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…

Theistic evolutionists fight back and lose

A giant neuron found wrapped around entire mouse brain Yuste and Eberwine would like to see 3D reconstructions of individual neurons compared to analyses of the genes expressed in those neurons. This may offer clues as to the type and function of each cell. The nutrient energy-dependent structure and function of all cell types in all living genera links biodiversity from the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in C. elegans to the predatory behavior of P. pacificus, a predatory nematode with…

Charles Darwin refutes theistic evolution

Charles Darwin wrote: IF under changing conditions of life… …variability is generally related to the conditions of life… …we cannot tell how much to attribute to the accumulative action of natural selection, and how much to the definite action of the conditions of life. …during the process of modification, each has become adapted to the conditions of life… Charles Darwin placed his energy-dependent “conditions of life” first. He knew that natural selection could not occur outside the context of the…

  • What Darwin proved: there’s no such thing as a species
    GENETICS As Animals Mingle, a Baffling Genetic Barrier A short stretch of DNA is challenging what it means to be a species.
