Via Panda’s Thumb, I have come across a blog that I wish I had known about sooner. It is Adaptive Complexity by Michael White, postdoc in the Department of Genetics and the Center for Genome Sciences at the Washington University School of Medicine, who is also a featured writer at Scientific Blogging (some readers may recall that I was invited to be a featured writer, but I ultimately decided not to commit due to time constraints).
In any case, Adaptive Complexity provides some good posts, and expresses some of the same frustrations as I do, about non-coding DNA. Some highlights:
- More Confusion about Junk DNA and Regulatory Sequences
- Junk DNA in the Opossum Genome
- Our Genomes, ENCODE, and Intelligent Design
- Time to Rethink the Gene?
- Non-coding DNA, Junk and Creationism
Welcome to my blogroll and feed reader, Dr. White.
