'Evolution may be more intelligent than we thought, according to researchers. In a new article, the authors make the case that evolution is able to learn from previous experience, which could provide a better explanation of how evolution by natural selection produces such apparently intelligent designs.'

Which is what this blog has been saying for years. There is more intelligence and processing-power in a strand of DNA than in all the dumb-as-a-brick nonsense spouted by those who worship Darwin's random-chance drivel.

This blog has many times over the years talked about changes to DNA being passed on down through the generations--long before the evidence emerged. Now yet more proof of that has been shown.

More and more intelligence is added to life's operating system, bit by bit.

'The researchers found distinct fingerprints in the ribosomes where new structures were added to the ribosomal surface without altering the pre-existing ribosomal core from the last universal common ancestor.'

'Like exploring the inner workings of a clock, researchers are digging into the inner workings of the tiny cellular machines called spliceosomes, which help make all of the proteins our bodies need to function. They have now captured images of this machine, revealing details never seen before.'

'It has long been assumed that there is only one "canonical" genetic code, so each word means the same thing to every organism. Now, this paradigm has been challenged by the discovery of large numbers of exceptions from the canonical genetic code', as ScienceDaily reports.

The DNA is a lot smarter than the blind dogma about it.

'Scientists discover double meaning in genetic code'.

'Scientists have discovered a second code hiding within DNA. This second code contains information that changes how scientists read the instructions contained in DNA and interpret mutations to make sense of health and disease.'

Which means that DNA is both data-storage and intelligent processor, which is what this blog has been saying for many years.

Exaptations not adaptations: Sorry Darwin, you got it wrong...

Yet more evidence of the experimental processing power over the generations.

'Exactly how new traits emerge is a question that has long puzzled evolutionary biologists. While some adaptations develop to address a specific need, others (called "exaptations") develop as a by-product of another feature with minor or no function, and may acquire more or greater uses later. Feathers, for example, did not originate for flight but may have helped insulate or waterproof dinosaurs before helping birds fly.

'How common such pre-adaptive traits are in relation to adaptive traits is unclear. Santa Fe Institute External Professor Andreas Wagner and colleague Aditya Barve, both evolutionary biologists at the University of Zurich, decided to get a systematic handle on how traits originate by studying all the chemical reactions taking place in an organism's metabolism.'

As this blog has been saying for years, the so-called 'junk' DNA is not junk. To use computer terms, DNA is CPU, RAM, disk drive, operating system, a vast range of applications and AI, all in one amazing package. Intelligent hardware and software. What was dismissed as junk, as this ScienceDaily story again underlines, never was junk. The only junk was in the dismissive hubris of the scientists who mocked it.

This headline in ScienceDaily today is not in the least surprising: Life Experiences Put Their Stamp On the Next Generation: New Insights from Epigenetics.

This blogger has been saying the same thing for many years.

Evolution: It’s all in how you splice it... MIT biologists find that alternative splicing of RNA rewires signalling in different tissues and may often contribute to species differences. Full story here.

Far from Random, Evolution Follows a Predictable Genetic Pattern

That headline in ScienceDaily says it all, and gives very nice empirical evidence to back up what this blog has been saying for years--i.e., that 'evolution' is driven by intelligent processing down through the generations.

It is not random changes. Nor is it random changes selected by the chances of reproduction and circumstance. Or any such nonsense.

So, once again: DNA is an intelligent processing system that works within organisms and across time to maintain and enhance life. That is sense.

Evolution is not blind. It knows what it is doing. Darwin was wrong.

The Human Genome Project produced an almost complete order of the 3 billion pairs of chemical letters in the DNA that embodies the human genetic code -- but little about the way that blueprint works. Now, after years of concerted effort by more than 440 researchers in 32 labs around the world, in a project called ENCODE, a more dynamic picture gives the first holistic view of how the human genome does its job.

'During the early debates about the Human Genome Project, researchers had predicted that only a few percent of the human genome sequence encoded proteins, the workhorses of the cell, and that the rest was junk. We now know that this conclusion was wrong,' said Eric D. Green, M.D., Ph.D., director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), a part of the National Institutes of Health. 'ENCODE has revealed that most of the human genome is involved in the complex molecular choreography required for converting genetic information into living cells and organisms.'

'We've come a long way,' said Ewan Birney, Ph.D., of the European Bioinformatics Institute, in the United Kingdom, and lead analysis-coordinator for ENCODE. 'By carefully piecing together a simply staggering variety of data, we've shown that the human genome is simply alive with switches, turning our genes on and off and controlling when and where proteins are produced.'

Which is precisely what this blog has been saying for years.

A UCLA study reported in ScienceDaily  has overturned the traditional view of the evolution of the human brain.

'Scientists usually describe evolution in terms of the human brain growing bigger and adding new regions,' explained the principal investigator, Dr. Daniel Geschwind, the Gordon and Virginia MacDonald Distinguished Professor of Human Genetics and a professor of neurology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. 'Our research suggests that it's not only size, but the rising complexity within brain centers, that led humans to evolve into their own species.'

Using post-mortem brain tissue, Geschwind and his colleagues applied next-generation sequencing and other modern methods to study gene activity in humans, chimpanzees and rhesus macaques, a common ancestor for both chimpanzee and humans that allowed the researchers to see where changes emerged between humans and chimpanzees. They zeroed in on three brain regions -- the frontal cortex, hippocampus and striatum.

By tracking gene expression, the process by which genes manufacture the amino acids that make up cellular proteins, the scientists were able to search the genomes for regions where the DNA diverged between the species. What they saw surprised them.

'When we looked at gene expression in the frontal lobe, we saw a striking increase in molecular complexity in the human brain,' said Geschwind, who is also a professor of psychiatry at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Behavior at UCLA.

'Although all three species share a frontal cortex, our analysis shows that how the human brain regulates molecules and switches genes on and off unfolds in a richer, more elaborate fashion,' explained first author Genevieve Konopka, a former postdoctoral researcher in Geschwind's lab who is now the Jon Heighten Scholar in Autism Research at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre.

Neuroscience News gives yet more evidence against the foolish Darwinian notion that random changes all added up in the end to new organisms or new features of existing ones. The study of human skulls cited shows that changes occurred in a co-ordinated fashion,and therefore must have been the result of intelligent processing. If they had occurred randomly, piecemeal, we would not have the brains needed to do any studies of anything...

ScienceDaily reports that Columbia University Medical Centre (CUMC) researchers have found the first direct evidence that an acquired trait can be inherited without any DNA involvement. The findings suggest that Lamarck, whose theory of evolution was supposed to have been eclipsed by Darwin's, may not have been entirely wrong.

'In our study, roundworms that developed resistance to a virus were able to pass along that immunity to their progeny for many consecutive generations,' reported lead author Oded Rechavi, PhD, associate research scientist in biochemistry and molecular biophysics at CUMC. 'The immunity was transferred in the form of small viral-silencing agents called viRNAs, working independently of the organism's genome.'

And were passed on for at least a hundred generations.

It is nice to have yet more evidence for what this blog has asserted all along. How long will it take for the Darwin-worshippers, the random-mutations priesthood, to admit the truth--that Darwin was wrong?

MIT News reports that the chemical signalling of cells is two-way. The mechanism senses whether the signals have been received and the 'volume' is adjusted as necessary.

Cells receive external signals through sensing molecules--or receptors--embedded in the cell membrane. They then start a cascade of signalling molecules that carry the signals to the nucleus or other internal structures in the cell. The new research shows that the speed or other characteristics of this signalling process can change when the signals are being received.

ScienceDaily reports new research demonstrating the impact that life experiences can have on genes and behavior. The studies examine how such environmental information can be transmitted from one generation to the next--a phenomenon known as epigenetics. The new knowledge could ultimately improve understanding of brain plasticity, the cognitive benefits of motherhood, and how a parent's exposure to drugs, alcohol, and stress can alter brain development and behavior in their offspring. The findings were presented at Neuroscience 2011, the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience and the world's largest source of news about the science and health of the brain.
