RNA-inspired biophysiology

Introduction for bioinspiration


Deng & Almsherqi [2] look at a remarkable microbe that is able to survive in extreme environments, such as lack of food, thermal and osmolarity fluctuations, and high levels of reactive oxygen species. The way in which this is achieved through the ‘crystallization’ of the membrane into cubic structures provides clues to how phospholipids may not only facilitate these structural characteristics in such extreme conditions, but also provide a protective shelter for RNAs. It is not yet clear what insights this may provide for biotechnology…

My comment: It is clear that bioinspiration means the end of neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory. Only the biologically uninformed continue to tout the pseudoscientific nonsense about mutations, natural selection, and the evolution of increasing organismal complexity.
Cell type differentiation occurs via nutrient-dependent RNA-directed DNA methylation and fixation of RNA-mediated amino acid substitutions in all genera. The substitutions are fixed via the physiology of reproduction.
