In the aftermath of Dan Graur’s claim that either our genome is mostly junk or evolution is false, new research is finding yet more ways that the so-called junk DNA is, in fact, functional. This time it is the introns which have been found to help with regulation of gene expression. As one of the researchers explained: read Read More…
It’s all over the news. Evolution promotes altruism, evolution rejects selfishness. I suppose other than this being a slow-news summer, this falls into the category of “man bites dog.” Weren’t we all taught that Darwinism was all about my survival, my selfishness?
