O.N.L.Y 1 %: 10 Tips For Better DNA Gel Extraction Results

Nabi s.a.w bersabda, maksudnya: Jabir mengatakan bahawa Rasulullah s.a.w pernah bersabda, "Wahai manusia, aku telah meninggalkan untuk kalian 2 perkara. Jika kalian menggunakannya tidak akan tersesat selamanya iaitu Al-Quran dan Ahlul Bait keturunanku." (HR At-Tarmizi dan ia menghasankannya) What is it about gel extraction of DNA that makes it a pain? Maybe it’s poor product yields or maybe it’s because the process uses harsh chemicals (chaotropic salts, ethidium bromide, ethanol, heat) that will damage or denature DNA and potentially decrease cloning success. In this article I share some [more...]

The ID Report - Prescribed Reading On Prescriptive Information

Shannon information, which provides a mathematical measure of improbability without regard to functionality does not help us in the description of life since the digital code of DNA is rich in what Johnson terms 'functional prescriptive information'. While initiatives such as the Origin Of Life Prize have encouraged researchers to find non-super-naturalistic processes that might explain the origins of prescriptive information, no offerings to-date have withstood the test of scientific scrutiny. Indeed all known cases of such information invariably point to the work of a mind. Johnson [more...]

Claim of Having Created Synthetic Life Is Far Overblown

A valid claim of creating synthetic life would require that – Even absent an agreed-upon ethics-based definition of “synthetic life,” a common sense definition would require that: (1) The synthetic DNA coding and sequencing not slavishly copy a known life form. Otherwise Life has done all the work in evolutionarily stumbling upon a coding sequence and organization that can self-replicate an organism on its own. (2) The synthesized DNA must either (a) code its own contents-enclosure (cell wall for bacteria) or (b) be placed in equally novel, human-created container, rather than [more...]

William Hay, Writer: Da Vinci Code and Christian Flesh

Tom Hanks in Da Vinci Code finds the divine sequence in a DNA and that Divine sequence gets passed on through generations.  The actual DNA gene studies suggest that we all have all the DNA but that certain areas are blocked and others are highlighted.  It's more complicated than we once thought. We once thought that if we were missing a bit then we'd not have an eye per se but it turns out that the DNA like the Synapses are multi referenced and repeat so that really the 'code' is all there but it's not read for whatever reason.  Indeed the whole human genome is in a bit of buccal smear.  [more...]

Coiling bacterial DNA | Code for Life

A chain of proteins hold bacterial DNA in a compacted spiral. You and I are eukaryotes. Our cells have nuclei, repositories that contain our DNA and the proteins that read them to produce an RNA copy of them. In earlier articles, I’ve mentioned in passing how the enormous length of DNA in our cells is fitted into a nucleus. Our DNA, all 2 metres of it, were you to stretch it out end-to-end — is fitted within a nucleus with a diameter of roughly 6-10 micrometres, about one-millionth of a metre. The trick is that a DNA molecule is very skinny — it’s only about 2 nanometers wide (2 [more...]

"It's evolving incredibly rapidly," Pollard said. "It's really an extreme case."

Our antibody database targets protein-coding genes. Although they form only 1% of the total human genome, they account for 85% of the mutations that lead to disease. DNA sequencing (defining the sequence of the 4 base amino acids within the DNA strand) and then using antibodies specific to those sequences, is a vital part of disease research. Sanger sequencing is the standard for doing this. However, in 2007 a next generation (or next gen) sequencing technique was devised.

Evolution News & Views: "Junk" DNA: Darwinism's Last Stand?

In 1980, Francis Crick and Leslie Orgel argued in Nature that "much DNA in higher organisms is little better than junk." The spread of junk DNA in the course of evolution "can be compared to the spread of a not-too-harmful parasite within its host." Since it is unlikely that such DNA has a function, "it would be folly in such cases to hunt obsessively for one." In a companion article, W. Ford Doolittle and Carmen Sapienza similarly argued that many organisms contain "DNAs whose only 'function' is survival within genomes," and that "the search for other explanations may prove, if not [more...]

Responding to Merlin Part III – Merlin's Delineation Between ...

In bacteria, this is often done by increasing transcription rates using a mutagenic DNA polymerase. In your immune system this is done, at least in part, by a deaminase attaching to the antibody gene to cause mutations. This deaminase is targeted by a non-coding DNA element, which points it not only to the correct gene, but the correct *part* of the correct gene. It would make no sense to mutate the part of the antibody which attaches to the cell, but only the part which attaches to the antigen. And, in fact, that is precisely the part that gets mutated. The region which attaches to the [more...]

A supposedly accurate DNA repair mechanism employed by cells to fix double-strand breaks can surprisingly increase the nearby mutation rate by up to 1400 times, providing a possible explanation for the accumulation of tumor-causing mutations in cancerous tissues. Previously, "we saw that DNA breaks are present in precancerous legions," said molecular oncologist Thanos Halazonetis of the University of Geneva, who did not participate in the research. "These breaks, based on this finding now, could perhaps explain mutations in oncogenes that drive cancer progression." Cancer [more...]
