I would think, like Dave, they would just ignore that sort of thing.

Oh crap I'm on the wrong thread.
Now you know how a translocated codon feels

I refuse to entertain this perennial bullshit nonsense about copying errors in DNA not being mistakes. Utterly ridiculous and I refuse to waste my time.
How does a chemical reaction make a mistake?
By not copying the correct thing from the template. I don't know ... go ask a biochemist. It's them saying it, not me.

We know you don't know.  That's exactly the point we are making. You are simply bullshitting.

You can't even grasp the difference between somatic and germline mutations, or understand that bacteria reproduce by copying themselves, while multicellular sexually reproducing organisms like people and sheep (which was where this discussion started, remember) don't.


Look you idiot I know enough to be able to read what a biochemist says about copying errors in DNA. Jesus Christ you're an idiot.

Why are we even talking about this stupid shit anyway?

This Thread is about the economics of saving Agriculture and I'm really interested in trying to figure out how to enable people to recolonize the land without breaking the bank.
On "breaking the bank", Dave, how much will it cost for a person to start an operation according to your theories? You should have the numbers at hand, since you presumably have tried to get people interested in your scheme. Otherwise, it should be easy for you to quote some relevant numbers from your records.

While you're at it, how long time will it take until that operation will be running sustainably?

So I guess we agree about the thread, which you started:

Thanks for asking.
What we biochemists mean by "error" in nucleic acid polymerization is the incorporation of nucleotide(s) in the copy different from those in the template from which the copy is being made.

You're welcome.

Which includes, for example, reversions, right?

Well, don't start so many then, if you can't remember which one you are trying to avoid.
