functional constraint

microRNA-mediated replication timing (1)

The phylogenetic utility and functional constraint of microRNA flanking sequences links the patent for naturally occurring light-activated carbon fixation to viral latency and healthy longevity across kingdoms. The patent: RNA-Guided Human Genome Engineering was linked from functional constraints to gain-of-function research in High-Quality Overlapping Paired-End Reads for the Detection of A-to-I Editing on Small RNA WHO failed to examine the problems associated with gain-of-function research, which researchers now suggest led to the creation of SARs-CoV-2. The creation of SARs-CoV-2 can be…

Mutations: the “driving force” behind human brain complexity?

Evolutionary Psychology Crap in New Scientist There is a reason why domestic violence is so widespread, says David Buss, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Texas in Austin: it carries a selective advantage, tied with reproductive success. Larry Moran wrote: There’s something seriously wrong with evolutionary psychology. And there’s something seriously wrong with respectable science magazines who promote this crap. Are the science magazines that promote this crap respectable? I lost respect for anyone who still uses de Vries…

The stability of organized genomes (2)

See also: The stability of organized genomes See also: The amino acid transporter SLC6A15 is a regulator of hippocampal neurochemistry and behavior Excerpt: Despite the high heritability of depression and a clear genetic contribution to the disease, the identification of genetic risk factors for depression has been very difficult. The first published candidate to reach genome-wide significance in depression was SLC6A15, a neuronal amino acid transporter. With a reported 1,42 fold increased risk of suffering from depression associated with a…
