food energy-dependent codon optimality

From quantum physics to quantum souls (2)

Summary: Natural selection for food energy-dependent codon optimality links the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction to all biodiversity on Earth via gene splicing and energy-dependent RNA-mediated fixation of amino acid substitutions. How humans and apes are different, and why it matters (2018) …the most distinctive feature of humanity is its ability to significantly alter ecosystems. That exemplifies human idiocy. The most distinctive features of humanity are biophysically constrained by what people eat and the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction. See: Nothing in Biology…

Energy-dependent physical and biophysical constraints (1)

Summary: The hitchhiking, the epistasis, and the dynamics of adapting populations are energy-dependent and biophysically constrained in the context of RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry. The virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA links mutations to all pathology in all living genera. An upper limit on the functional fraction of the human genome For the human population to maintain a constant size from generation to generation, an increase in fertility must compensate for the reduction in the mean fitness of the population caused,…

From E. coli to monkeys and mankind: Theories vs models (5)

From E. coli to monkeys and mankind: Theories vs models (4) CRISPR Is Taking Over Science, Breaks Out Of Labs And Invades Schools (5/29/17) …used mathematical models to reveal that even in a uniform environment, metabolic competition generally leads to the steady coexistence of distinct microbes, collectively called a “consortium”. In a consortium, distinct microbes organize themselves to create a community-level metabolism that best exploits the nutrients present. The models showed that while growing, a consortium depletes the available pool…
