I’m attending a meeting of the Texas Genetics Society this weekend, and I noticed something very interesting in the program. I was just thumbing through when a title caught my eye: “Search for de-novo orphan genes - the neo holy grail of genomes?” Komal K. B. Raja (Baylor College of Medicine - Department of Pathology and Immunology) will give the talk, but none other than our friend, @pnelson is on the byline! Additionally, Richard Gunasekera (I confess, I’ve never heard of him) is also indicated to be associated with both Biola University and the Department of Chemistry at Rice University.
I see nothing in the abstract related to Intelligent Design, but needless to say, I’ll be very interested to hear this talk.
Here is the full list of contributors, just in case anyone is familiar with them:
Do any of you know these scientists?
P. S. I’ll type in the abstract if anyone is interested in reading it.
P. P. S. @pnelson, in the off-chance you are actually at the conference, let me know!
