MicroRNAs: A New Clue About Octopus Intelligence?
While octopus brains are very different from vertebrate brains, they share with vertebrates, a huge number of microRNAs.
The Positive Case for Intelligent Design in Genetics
Functionality for junk DNA is prevalent, and was successfully predicted by intelligent design.
Nature Reviews Genetics — Pseudogene Function Is “Prematurely Dismissed”
As Seth W. Cheetham and his co-authors put it, biology suffers from “demotivation into exploring pseudogene function by the a priori assumption that they are functionless.”
More Cellular Roles Found for RNA
Previously relegated to servant tasks under the master DNA molecules, ribonucleic acids continue to surprise scientists.
MicroRNAs Don’t Fit the Evolution Model
A recent study investigated microRNAs in Saccharina japonica and compared them to previously investigated microRNAs, including in a different brown algae species.
