Re: Evolution of the Face and Head

... with a B mutant. Some of their offspring could have both mutations. In an example where these 2 mutations lie on the same chromosome at different loci, I understand that through recombination these mutant alleles can be combined onto one chromosome. Thus lots of offspring will have both mutations.

I have got some BIG issues! forgive the long post

... inheritance of D, C, E, c, and e antigens. The main tenets of the theory are as follows: 1. Rh inheritance is controlled by 3 closely linked loci on each chromosome of a homologous pair. 2. Each locus has its own set of alleles which are Dd, Cc, and Ee. The D gene is dominant to the d gene, ...

... that the reasoning fails if location doesn't matter, I think they were implying that these 'orthologous' (homologous) sequences are at the same loci in chimps and humans. The idea is that, with all the possible locations for this sequence, it is improbable that it would wind up in the same location ...

Re: Locus specificity and ERVs - Q from a creationist

The reasoning fails if the adaptive functions do not depend on their exact loci. I don't really understand your reasoning. However, retroviruses are the major players and drivers of evolution. When they insert into host genome, they can alter host genes located ...
