A Mathematical Model Links Quantum Physics to Quantum Souls (2)

See for review: A Mathematical Model Links Quantum Physics to Quantum Souls (1) See for comparison: Zaugg Lab We are applying and developing computational biology tools for integrating large-scale biological ‘omics data to address questions in personalised genomics. The Zaugg Lab ignores everything known to serious scientists about energy-dependent top-down causation, which is the only way to link quantum physics to biophysically constrained biologically-based biodiversity. Watch them try to do that with a mathematical model, instead. Loops in DNA affect which proteins are coded …

The “walking fish” walks straight from quantum physics to quantum souls (2)

Summary: Cell fate conversion is food energy-dependent and pheromone-controlled in the context of the physiology of reproduction and autophagy, which links biophysically constrained viral latency to the differences in C. elegans and P. pacificus, a predatory nematode with teeth. Application of RNAi and Heat-shock-induced Transcription Factor Expression to Reprogram Germ Cells to Neurons in C. elegans 1/01/2018 Summary This protocol describes how to study cellular processes during cell fate conversion in Caenorhabditis elegans in vivo. Using transgenic animals,allowing heat-shock promoter-driven overexpression of…

Predicting who wins the 2017 Nobel Prizes (6)

I failed to correctly predict who would win this year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry, but there is still hope for my prediction of who will win the Nobel Peace Prize. I thought Lynn Zechiedrich would win for linking cryo-EM to the Structural diversity of supercoiled DNA Our cryo-ET, biochemical, and computational studies show the astounding versatility and dynamism of DNA depending on the degree of supercoiling. DNA simultaneously exists in a largely inactive B-form with bases tucked in and protected…

Forces of "Nature" limit dissemination of information

Force of nature gave life its asymmetry Excerpt: “In 2011, Meierhenrich and colleages showed4 that such light could transfer its handedness to amino acids. But even demonstrating how a common physical phenomenon would have favoured left-handed amino acids over right-handed ones would not tell us that this was how life evolved, adds Laurence Barron, a chemist at the University of Glasgow, UK. “There are no clinchers. We may never know.” My comment:I think the clincher is the creation of the…
