Phil B. presents How to Divide by Zero posted at Phil for Humanity. In another post, Phil brings up Global Warming, with the warning "Either our world leaders are going to recognize global warming as a real threat to humanity and address it properly, or the entire human population may become extinct." Read about it atGlobal Warming: Mankind's Greatest Threat.
Sandra Porter submits another entry at Discovering Biology in a Digital World where she discusses "Evolutionary genetics applied to molecular epidemiology. A real-life application for phylogenetics."
Hsien-Hsien Lei, PhD presents Genetics and Health: DNA is as Sexy as Jennifer Garner posted at Genetics and Health, saying, "Happy New Year!"
Alex writes on a silent mutation that does not affect protein levels, but appears to alter the activity of the protein, leaving patients who possess the mutation with an inability to sense pain.
Sunil over at Balancing Life has an interesting post about the population genetics of lactose intolerance.
Sandwalk discusses differences in human and chimp DNA. Also included is a nice takedown of Michael Denton and his misunderstanding of molecular clocks.
Matt from Behavioral Ecology Blog posts about Fst and its usefulness to measure population differentiation.
