Ecological adaptation: A new definition of heredity (3)

Excerpt: Moving forward: Novel and Haplotype Specific MicroRNAs Encoded by the Major Histocompatibility Complex …these data suggest that a subset of the identified novel miRNAs may contribute to the pathophysiology of numerous diseases, laying the groundwork for future studies to elucidate the functional connections of miRNAs to the numerous diseases associated with sequence variants within non-coding regions of the MHC. OMCD: OncoMir Cancer Database Dysregulation of miRNAs is commonly observed in cancers and it largely cancer dependent. The virus-driven theft…

A mental health problem at the highest level (3)

Summary: It has been 75 years since Erwin Schrödinger exposed the pseudoscientific nonsense of mutation-driven evolution in the lecture series that was published as What is Life? (1944) The mental health of so-called science journalists must be addressed. Many of them seem to be pathological liars or, at best biologically uninformed science idiots who cannot link physics and chemistry from molecular epigenetics to all energy-dependent biodiversity on Earth. The Biggest Myth In Quantum Physics by Ethan Siegel Conclusion: Take ourselves…

From Autophagy.pro (transitions)

Summary: Who lets biologically uninformed theorists make presumptions about evolution after all serious scientists have linked light-harvesting from energy-dependent changes in electrons to ecosystems in all living genera via natural selection for food energy-dependent codon optimality. Who lets them pretend not to know that the pheromone-controlled physiology of reproduction links autophagy to the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of healthy longevity? Who is causing the unnecessary suffering and premature death of your loved ones? Elsevier publishing supports the pseudoscientific nonsense touted by…

Life in your UV light-constrained galaxy

A measurement of the z = 0 UV background from Hα fluorescence Despite the substantial systematic uncertainty that affects our measurement, our work has demonstrated the potential that future MUSE observations have in constraining the intensity of the UVB in the local Universe. This is a report on the Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) instrument. The preposterous claim is not supported with experimental evidence that observations made in the context of the instrument somehow constrain the intensity of UV light. That unsupported…

Stuart Kauffman refutes theistic evolution

See also: Virus-driven energy theft and premature death Biodiversity is autocatalytic (Senior author Stuart Kauffman) …it was recently shown using the RAF algorithm that the metabolic network of Escherichia coli forms a large autocatalytic set of close to 1800 reactions (Sousa et al., 2015). As far as we know, this is the first formal proof that living organisms (or at least essential parts thereof) are indeed autocatalytic sets. Reported as: “Autocatalytic biodiversity hypothesis aims to supplant Darwin’s ‘war of the…

Dobzhansky 1973 and precision medicine (3)

Dobzhansky 1973 and precision medicine Dobzhansky 1973 and Precision Medicine (2) How Do Bacteria Help Cancer Studying bacterial effects on cancer are very complex, because there is no one clear mechanism Jon LIeff has again obfuscated the clarity of facts about energy-dependent conserved molecular mechanisms. These are the facts: 1) Closed feedback loops link nutrient energy-dependent pheromone-controlled quorum sensing in bacteria to supercoiled DNA in all living genera. 2) Virus-driven energy theft causes the degradation of messenger RNA in bacteria…

From Precis to Proof in 6000 years

Religious texts, such as The Holy Bible appear to be like a Precis of works from God. He seems to be explaining energy-dependent creation in the context of what is currently known to serious scientists about biophysically constrained RNA-mediated protein folding chemistry, healthy longevity and RNA-mediated biodiversity. God made it perfectly clear, in advance, that all miraculous biodiversity is energy-dependent. Energy as information is the theme that extends to the weekend resurrection of the bacterial flagellum in P. fluorscens. Biologically…

The Aquatic Ape: New evidence?

The Waterside Ape BBC Radio 4 Publicity Sir David Attenborough considers whether new evidence will help a once widely ridiculed theory of human origins move towards to mainstream acceptance. In 1960, the eminent Oxford marine biologist Sir Alister Hardy proposed a revolutionary idea: that our human ancestors had not started their existence on the wide savannahs of Africa, but had become accustomed to living alongside water – swimming and diving in the shallows, collecting the abundant food, and learning to…

Masters of deception about nature

Masters of Physics in Nature Excerpt: This interaction raises the possibility that particle velocity information and electrical information, and interactions between them, can be encoded by a single hair.” It also raises the possibility that “electroreception is widespread in arthropods, fulfilling functions beyond the detection of floral electric fields. My comment: Energy-dependent microRNA flanking sequences linked all invertebrates to all vertebrates in the context of what was published as:  The phylogenetic utility and functional constraint of microRNA flanking sequences and…

Ricki Lewis’ Time Machine (2)

See also: Can a Quirky Chromosome Create a Second Human Species? Reported here as: Ricki Lewis’ Time Machine Physics’s pangolin Trying to resolve the stubborn paradoxes of their field, physicists craft ever more mind-boggling visions of reality Excerpt 1) with my emphasis Physicists are deeply aware of the schizophrenic nature of their science and long to find a synthesis, or unification. Such is the goal of a so-called ‘theory of everything’. However, to non-physicists, these competing lines of thought, and…
