Lethal virus kills 5 billion people?

The “walking fish” walks straight from quantum physics to quantum souls (5)

Evolutionary determinants of genome-wide nucleotide composition January 1, 2018 1) They place their thoughts about mutation rates into the context of compatibility with mutational spectra. 2)They claim the mutation rate can be linked to mutational spectra that may be free to wander across evolutionary time. 3) They ignore facts that link the energy-dependent maintenance of a suppressed constant genome-wide deleterious rate that obviously occurs in the context of the Virus-mediated archaeal hecatomb in the deep seafloor 4) They eliminate the…

Draining the academic swamp of parasites

National Academies Revise Conflict of Interest Policy The proposed changes follow revelations in recent years that committee members preparing reports for the Academies did not disclose industry relationships. By Ashley P. Taylor | May 3, 2017 Excerpt: They are also thinking about including not only current activities and relationships, as they do now, but past ones when determining whether or not a committee member has a COI. See for comparison: Ian Hodder: Çatalhöyük, Religion & Templeton’s 25% My comment: Past…

Vietnam Veterans and others with glioblastoma

The Agent Orange Widows Club After their husbands died of an aggressive brain cancer, the widows of Vietnam veterans have found one another as they fight the VA for benefits. See also: Vietnam Veterans with Glioblastoma Multiforme Stage 4 Brain Cancer This post was removed: Targeting NF-κB in glioblastoma: A therapeutic approach This is the level of complexity that the VA needs to understand and link to the treatment of this aggressive cancer, which is obviously caused by virus-driven energy theft.…

Energy-dependent sensory maps (1996-2016)

Developmental broadening of inhibitory sensory maps My summary: They help to detail how olfactory input causes the energy-dependent de novo creation of sensory maps, which are representations of the external world. The experience-dependent representations link chemotaxis and phototaxis to biophysically constrained behavior. The representations are systematically organized in brain structures throughout development. Simply put, the maps are links from the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA in organized genomes. By investigating how ongoing neurogenesis in the mouse…
