Xconomy Boston —. Biology research has gotten so precise these days that scientists barely bat an eye when they talk about their ability to study the genome of individual cells or swap out single “letters” in DNA. So it's probably no surprise that ...

'Jumping genes' key to evolution, researchers reveal - Deccan Chronicle


Deccan Chronicle
Washington: Turns out, almost half of our DNA sequences are made up of jumping genes, which are also known as transposons. Transposons is a DNA sequence that changes its position within a genome, sometimes creating or reversing mutations and ...

How do jumping genes cause disease, drive evolution? - Phys.Org


Phys.Org
Almost half of our DNA sequences are made up of jumping genes—also known as transposons. They jump around the genome in developing sperm and egg cells and are important to evolution. But their mobilization can also cause new mutations that lead to ...

    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.
