I understand evolution perfectly more than the general population by far. For one, it's not that complex. For another, it's not that mysterious. It is unusual in that intuition suggests that it is true, and yet not evidence in nature or biology confirm the model.
What? What the farmer does not know he won't eat? What the hell are you talking about? That is what I mean by bigotry, you obviously have very demeaning ideas about farmers.
Yes, humans are sometimes too trusting of other people's claims, and don't ask questions. Which is why there are bad Christians ... and bad people like you that take evolution on faith from other "authorities."
It's an expression.
With general application. Usually people are ill at ease and will judge quickly in a negative tone when they do not understand a subject fully.
Scepticism is good as far as it goes together with education.
A statement about understanding evolution better than most would have to be proven.
If you talk about the general population you might maybe have a point. But sofar the gist has been that you see no point in any research since you can't find real-world application.(I could also say that who claims also needs to proof, but getting the gist sofar i'm generous. A real humanitarian.)
Talk about farmers, you want to improve yield, wel you start your evolutionary experiment untill you got what you want.
Or call the lab that specializes and order what you need.
You want a baby but do not want a fetus damaged in screening:
Over at Xconomy Luke Timmerman has a post up, Natera Joins Quest in Four-Way Battle for Prenatal Genetic Tests. Here are some important details:
…The company uses the same basic instrument to analyze DNA—Illumina’s HiSeq—but it has been tailored differently to look for about 20,000 different single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the mom’s blood sample. The workflow is pretty simple—a clinician takes a blood sample from the mom, it gets shipped to Natera’s centralized lab in San Carlos, CA, and results are sent back to the physician and patient in two weeks.
After meeting with executives from all four major players in the non-invasive prenatal genetic testing market, and many physicians at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine meeting, JP Morgan analyst Tycho Peterson wrote that the market appears poised to take off.
“In stark contrast to just a few years ago, NIPT [non-invasive prenatal genetic testing] is now widely understood and used by the maternal-fetal medicine community, which tends to be an early adopter of new technology and often sees high-risk patients,” Peterson wrote in a note to clients Feb. 18. Still, he cautioned there are “widely divergent views” among physicians about the appropriate use of the technology, particularly on whether it should be expanded beyond high-risk pregnancies and into more mainstream usage.
.For readers of this weblog who are interested in this sort of thing I think the key to note is that it doesn’t matter what your doctor’s views are, just find a doctor who will align themselves with your views. You’re paying for it, and you are going to raise your children, not them.
And by the way, 20,000 SNPs is a decent amount to work with if you got the raw data. It would be good enough probably for inferring the identity-by-descent from various grandparents and such.
just a few examples.
