Let there be anti-entropic light (2)

Physics

Without knowing anything about the biophysically constrained chemistry of protein folding that links light-induced amino acid substitutions to the stability of DNA is the organized genomes from plants via bioluminescent bacteria in squid, the pattern of nutrient-dependent biologically-based cause and…

Let there be anti-entropic light (1)

terrarium eco system

Summary: Light-induced amino acid substitutions link cell type differentiation in plants to nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled reproduction in animals via the biophysically constrained chemistry of protein folding. Protein folding is perturbed by mutations that limit the ability of organisms to adapt to…
