Excerpt: “The DNA bases targeted for modification are highly non-random, and the targeting had a broad effect on the transcription of genes,” Schadt said in the release. “It almost appears like another language.”
My comment: I think this exemplifies the common language of molecular biology across species from microbes to man. If not, perhaps some of my antagonists will provide a model for adaptive evolution that does not incorporate the common language of epigenetic effects on genetic predisposition.
