Stem cell memory is biophysically constrained (2)

translocated chromosome

If stem cell memory is biophysically constrained, by nutrient-dependent pheromone-controlled amino acid substitutions, we can expect to find experimental evidence that conserved molecular mechanisms link the basic principles of nucleosome retention in plants to nucleosome retention in mouse and human…

Epimutations: Attacking pseudoscientific dogmas

terrarium eco system

“Our principle aim in the lab is to attack scientific dogmas.” That claim went missing from the Oded Rechavi lab web page  in September 2014. Perhaps it drew unwanted attention to the lab. No matter, the short perspective: RNA and…

The quantum biology of consciousness

terrarium eco system

Everything known about quantum biology “…suggests conscious experience is intrinsically connected to the fine-scale structure of space–time geometry, and that consciousness could be deeply related to the operation of the laws of the universe.” See for review: Consciousness in the universe:…
