Is this the best you can do? You post an article that actually supports what I'm saying? The article says.
Adaptation to novel environments is often associated with changes in gene regulation. Nevertheless, few studies have been able both to identify
the genetic basis of changes in regulation and to demonstrate why these changes are beneficial.
First, your article says there's few studies that even touch these areas. This is because they can't and I will explain why in a minute.
Secondly, the whole article are talks about CHANGES IN REGULATION. The regulation and expression mechanics are already in place.
The next line explains the focus of this study and why it has nothing to do with anything I talked about.
To this end, we have focused on understanding both how and why the lactose utilization network has evolved in replicate populations of Escherichia
Again, the lactose utilization network is already in place and they wanted to understand why and how it evolved in other populations, not how the
mechanics of the network evolved.
Again, how did the mechanics of the lac operon evolve? Whhat evolved first the promoter region, operator region or the region that codes for lac
proteins? How did this sequence evolve? In what successive steps did this evolve? Did the repressor evolve before the operator region? How did the
The mechanics of a system based on code has to be put in place by intelligence. It's simply ignorant to me that people will even suggest that the
mechanics of a system evolved naturally.
When I'm looking at the blinds on my window, I can see the mechanics of the system. If I pull the string one way the blinds open up, when I pull them
the other way the blinds close. These mechanics were put in place by intelligence.
Here's a video about the lac operon.
The mechanics of the system didn't evolve, they were instructed by intelligence.
Also, if you're so worried about me saying the lac operon, you need to write the Author of the article you posted. Here's what he said:
Here we focus on the regulation of a group of well-studied genes, the lac operon, that control the utilization of lactose
