Gaaahhh. I see your point, but you may have to modify your signature.
FYI - I am alive and well (enough). I have NOT been banned, blocked,
possessed or otherwise altered.
Got busy in RL, plus sick. I am not reliably available.
Never have been. And I flit too.
...But I still love ATS, and look forward to our u2u's and
getting back to my work here.
Have been talking to some biologists and
it seems my main hypothesis is quite sound - biomacromolecules
do mediate between living arganisms and non-living systems.
So if they change in structure and composition, obviously yes,
the ecosphere could be affected.
Ie., IF bonds are strengthened or weakened in altered biomacromolecules,
a) carbon may not be sequestered to past extent, or
b) nitrogen / other nutrients may be less available
More later. Keep posting!
