Re: Genes in the same linkage group are inherited together?

... it's the alleles of the genes that are of concern here. The order of the genes themselves will remain the same barring genetic events such as deletions, insertions, translocations, or inversions. You can get more information by searching for "linkage disequilibrium" and "genetic ...

Re: question for evolutionary biologist.

... down the road of constructing a new genome. Incidentally the synthetic genome is somewhat different from that of the original even apart from the deletions. What you have referred to as the “non functional” lengths of DNA do actually actually function, however because the proteins produced are ...

question for evolutionary biologist.

... - correct me if I am wrong, but, as I understand it, the constructed DNA is identical to the DNA of the first organism, except for a few non-vital deletions, and then an addition of a non-functional length of DNA. Regarding whether it is a new species, I guess I don't know what constitutes a new ...

Synthetitic genetic screening in yeast

... is one doing in practical terms when dealing with Synthetic-lethality & Synthetic Genetic Arrays? The only thing I get is that you use genetic deletions to study how different genes can perform tasks that are ordinarily assigned to other genes if a situation should arise when the primary gene ...

Theories - Origin of Life

... you said you agreed with. The term mutation can refer to any process that changes the genetic information in the genome, including DNA insertions, deletions and rearrangements. And as already discussed ‒ rearrangements are random as well. Or to avoid giving the wrong impression, they are probabilistic ...
