Designing Genetic Circuits

Near the turn of the millennium, James Collins and Stanislas Leibler independently undertook rather similar projects: design what would become synthetic biology’s seminal genetic circuits. And they came up with strikingly similar action plans.

Near the turn of the millennium, James Collins and Stanislas Leibler independently undertook rather similar projects: design what would become synthetic biology’s seminal genetic circuits. And they came up with strikingly similar action plans—use E. coli to pair promoters with repressors that control one another’s behavior.

First Learn What Life And What Genes Are:

(Extend evolution
way down to genes, life’s base ORGANISMS. Culture modifies genetics, not vice
versa...)

Pavlov’s
Smile: RNAs Are Earth’s Primal Organisms

Culture>genes>addiction (2 July 2009)

http://universe-life.com/2011/...

 

Why Pavlov
smiled in 2008?

 

Pavlov
demonstrated effecting placebo phenomena in multi celled organisms by
manipulation of their drives-reactions. Now placebo and imagination phenomena
are demonstrated also in Earth’s smallest, base organisms, in the genes and
genomes of multi-celled organisms, in our primal 1st stratum and 2nd stratum
base organisms.

A very good
reason to smile.

Now an interesting
chain is exposed to our view, the Genes-Virtual Reality Chain, a most
intriguing cultural evolution chain extending from the genesis of our genes to
nowadays, throughout life, a virtual reality existence, and by virtual reality
phenomena, exploitations and manipulations.

Natural
selection is E (energy) temporarily constrained in an m (mass) format.

Natural selection
is a universal ubiquitous trait of ALL mass spin formats, inanimate and
animate.

Life
began/evolved on Earth with the natural selection of inanimate RNA, then of
some RNA nucleotides, then arriving at the ultimate mode of natural
selection,  self-replication.
