It seems to me that this describes the mechanism as parasitism.
....How do you think these researchers would go about looking for evidence of animal genetic material cross-swapped between species?

As you know, I've been ranting about epigenetics here for years - and yes, it is the key to many cancers. Interesting that more people see the commercial value. Won't be posting or starting a thread on the topic but wish you the very best of luck.
I suppose they are trying to figure out how to make it expensive. That could take years.
I think that the horizontal transfer of genetics in humans can be accomplished. This could be dangerous though. Those who want power can use it against us in the future.
Wow this is some cool stuff. It kind of makes the mind run wild with possibilities if we can harness these genome piggy-backs in humans. The examples they mentioned of splicing salamander dna into human dna to regrow fingers could only be the beginning. This is all exciting stuff. S&F OP for the find.
