Please comment this theory, is this theory correct?

The theory is that the radical flavonoid (like quercetin) molecule forms a DNA adduct, like mutagenic substances form a DNA adduct and causes DNA to be misread which causes mutation in daughter cells. Radical molecules have the ability to covalently bind to DNA, which ...

Designing primers to clone into expression vector

... wikipedia, on the site directed mutagenesis wiki page it says "Variations employ three or four oligionucleotides, two of which may be non-mutagenic oligonucleotides that cover two convenient restriction sites and generate a fragment that can be digested and ligated into a plasmid, while ...

Experimental evidence for evolution

... omnipotence. If they seriously think God can't set up a universe in which particular genes are subjected to particular mutuations by particular mutagenic events at particular times which eventually result in Homo sap, then they believe in a pretty puny God to my mind! (When you are God, random ...
