Junk DNA Goes the Way of the Vestigial Organs Myth

Yet another study finds that “Junk DNA” has a critical role in mammals.

Celebrate ENCODE III and the demise of ‘Junk DNA’

An international genome survey finds that vast quantities of non-coding DNA are transcribed and probably functional, not 'junk' as evolutionists had thought.

Human Genome Individuality Adds New Questions

Mission accomplished: “The Human Genome Project” was in the bag by 2003. Now we understand how humans are genetically wired, right? Not so fast. Another human genome was just published, raising a whole new set of questions. The big issue is that we all have two genomes in one – one from each parent. Biologists knew this, of course, but for the first time, those two genomes were untangled from one another, and a lot of differences were found: two million, in fact. How do our two separate genomes behave toward each other? And if genomes differ this much, what does a concept like “the human genome” really mean?
