How Do You Know When You’ve Found Them All? A Question That Applies To Beetles and Cancer Genes Alike by Carl Zimmer Conclusion: “Cancer biologists and beetle experts are not all that different when you think about it. They walk the same foggy road together, a long way from the end.” My comment: Only the cancer biologists and beetle experts who believe in mutation-driven evolution are walking a road together. It’s not a foggy road. It’s brain fog that makes them similar.…

Intriguingly, some of the gene differences involve ones involved in both immune responses and the development of brain cells in people.” “Somewhere within these 96 genes may lay the answer to why Neanderthals and Denisovans became extinct.” Journal article: The complete genome sequence of a Neanderthal from the Altai Mountains Excerpt (with…
