Nature’s Energy Mining Relies on Molecular Design
Plants mine energy from a primary source (sun) and transform that energy into a secondary source (sugar).
Study: Planets Capable of Sustaining Photosynthesis Are Extremely Rare
So how did the paper determine that photosynthesis has an “overall simplicity,” despite the complexity just described?
Do Proteins Lack Metals, Reflecting Poor Design?
According to Erika DeBenedictis, “one of the big limitations of biology are the basic building blocks themselves.”
Optimality Recognized in Core Biological Infrastructure
I will begin with an example from embryology, then turn to metabolism, and finish with the breadth of chemical space covered by the natural amino acids.
What Subduction Teaches About Intelligent Design
My PhD research was on the early plate tectonic history on earth. Plate tectonics involves the movement of plates on the surface of the earth.
