phylogenetic utility

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…

Hypothesis free pseudoscience vs facts (5)

See first: Hypothesis free pseudoscience vs facts (4) Re: There is literally nothing left of neo-Darwinian pseudoscientific nonsense, and yet pseudoscientists still make the same ridiculous claims. See for comparison:  Current Drug Design Studies for Hsp70 in Oncological Applications SBD [substrate binding domain] contains hydrophobic amino acid residues, and this hydrophobic cavity helps unfolded substrate proteins to fold their native structure. Thus, exposed part of the folded proteins may not interact with each other and cause aggregation [in the context…

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…
