Imagining “Abiogenesis”: Crick, Watson, and Franklin
There are some biologists, such as Richard Dawkins, who still pin their faith in ideas which have resulted only in blankly negative experimental results.
New Animation on Topoisomerase Demonstrates Irrationality of Denying Design Evidence in Biology
Replication or transcription of DNA stresses the macromolecule, resulting in supercoiling. Topoisomerase II relieves the stress.
Long Story Short — A Strikingly Unnatural Property of Biopolymers
Scientists have been trying for decades to get monomers to link up into biopolymers under “prebiotically plausible conditions.”
Three Stunners Challenge Traditional Darwinism
Remember when fossil hunters found Marble Canyon, a fossil bed in Canada that surpassed the Burgess Shale in extent and species richness?
Cells Use Loop Extrusion to Keep DNA Optimized
A paper illustrates the action of DNA loop extrusion processes, which serve multiple functions to maintain the genome, with an interesting graphic: gears.
