Gene in Worms Could Be Key to Longer Human Lifespan - Cornell University The Cornell Daily Sun


Cornell University The Cornell Daily Sun
Sylvia Lee, molecular biology and genetics, may have discovered such an elixir in the soils of Ithaca. Her research indicates the secret of immortality may be hidden in the genome of a worm. Lee found that Caenorhabditis elegans, a common species of ...

Cell biology: Positioning the cleavage furrow - Science Daily


Science Daily
Cell division is a fundamental biological process which ensures that, following the replication of the mother cell's genome, the two sets of chromosomes are equally distributed between two daughter cells. Chromosomes are segregated by the spindle ...

    Home (Furies In The Genome)
    The struggle for existence causes genetic variation and natural selection. This idea is the basis for unifying molecular biology and Freudian psychology (mutations and psychosis) under the heading of generational relations. It is also the basis for unifying religion and the theory of evolution, because prophets, saints, and heroes, are evolutionary variants.
