Polycombic ecological adaptation as a science, not a theory (2)

Evolutionary Constraints in the β-Globin Cluster: The Signature of Purifying Selection at the δ-Globin (HBD) Locus and Its Role in Developmental Gene Regulation Conclusion: … the results here presented indicate that purifying selection is driving not only HBD evolution but also its neighbor pseudogene, HBBP1. In the light of recent advances in the characterization of Polycombic ecological adaptation as a science, not a theory (2)

Mechanisms of stress: from genes to cancer

Biophysically constrained nutrient-dependent thermodynamic cycles of protein biosynthesis and degradation link the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of DNA in all living genera. Genomic stability arises in the context of a fine-tuned balance of viral microRNAs and nutrient-dependent microRNAs.  RNA-mediated gene duplication and RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions stabilize organized genomes. Nutrient-dependent microRNAs are linked Mechanisms of stress: from genes to cancer

Sackler Colloquium: Effects or AFFECTS on Behavior

Arthur M. Sackler Colloquium of the National Academy of Sciences, “Epigenetic Changes in the Developing Brain: Effects on Behavior,” held March 28–29, 2014, at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC. The complete program and video recordings of most presentations are available on the NAS website. I reiterate: the title is: Epigenetic changes in Sackler Colloquium: Effects or AFFECTS on Behavior
