Another possibility is that there has been one or more mutation(s) in one of the primer binding sites so that the primer has some ...

Molecular gene (genome) concept scientifically untenable

... the synthesis of another structure like itself, [in] which even the mutations of the original gene are copied. [We] do not know of such things ... comparison is a case of similar genomes but dissimilar phenotypes. The reverse case is also known. Caenorhabditis elegans and C. briggsae are physically ...

DNA and Protein Synthesis

... few codons (remember, genetic code is degenerated, so you cannot simply reverse-translate!). For this are you would design primers and try to get ... DNA, but of the protein. Anyway, there are several options. Either the mutation will be silent, i.e. coding for the same amino acid and you will ...

... The evidence also shows, through advances in molecular biology, random mutations of a genome cannot produce the functional design we all see in ... function, for survival. In the case of cave animals however the precise reverse is being argued. Why? The reason it seams to me, is to try and preserve ...
