Light-activated feedback loops vs self-organization of ecosystems

John Lieff has been trying to update his ridiculous misrepresentations of biologically-based cause and effect to match the accurate representations we made in a section on molecular epigenetics in our 1996 Hormones and Behavior review. From Fertilization to Adult Sexual Behavior Nothing can stop him, but this will provide the next source for material that […]

Pseudoscientists fail to refute theistic evolution

Darwinism for the Genomic Age: Connecting Mutation to Diversification …the chief cause of our natural unwillingness to admit that one species has given birth to other and distinct species, is that we are always slow in admitting any great change of which we do not see the intermediate steps. (Darwin, 1859) Darwin put energy-dependent “conditions […]

The futility of The Battlefield FB group

Apparently, Paul Hartley blocked me from further discussion of his OP about dinosaurs and gladiators before I could ask if he thought “The Battlefield” is a “false flag” group. Does anyone else think that?   If so, do you think it can survive publication of experimental evidence that links responsive supramolecular systems to stepwise changes […]

Polycombic ecological adaptation as a science, not a theory

Multi-omic data integration enables discovery of hidden biological regularities   Excerpt: Tracing the central dogma of biology (left column), we can link specific data types (middle column) to explain each of these biological processes. In this work, novel biological regularities that relate these processes are discovered through: (i) primary omics data (top box, right column) […]

The natural success of RNAi and failed treatment

see my other blog posts on m6A Dynamics of Human and Viral RNA Methylation during Zika Virus Infection Excerpt: …ZIKV infection alters m6A location in mRNAs, methylation motifs, and target genes modified by methyltransferases. Our results identify a mechanism by which ZIKV interacts with and alters host cell functions. Reported as: Zika virus infection alters […]
