By Edwin M. Southern (auth.), Jang B. Rampal (eds.)

Microarray expertise, which allows the swift, simultaneous, and hugely delicate research of enormous numbers of organic samples, is now getting into frequent use for complicated examine on gene expression, mutation research, proteomics, and gene sequencing. In DNA Arrays: equipment and Protocols, Jang Rampal and a authoritative panel of researchers, engineers, and technologists clarify intimately the right way to layout and build those DNA arrays, in addition to tips to hybridize them with organic samples for research. In step by step directions those specialists aspect not just tips to connect or print arrays on a number of matrices, but additionally organic pattern coaching (DNA and RNA), hybridization stipulations, sign detection, probe optimization, varied printing applied sciences, and information assortment and research (bioinformatics). extra issues coated contain genotyping, sequencing by way of hybridization, antisense reagents, HLA-DQA typing recommendations, and gene expression research. Rounding out the technical presentation are 3 chapters that evaluate the background of microarrays, the moral ramifications of genetic research utilizing DNA arrays, and the company points of biochip applied sciences. Forward-looking and state of the art, DNA Arrays: tools and Protocols offers all investigators engaged in organic and biomedical learn the total variety of potent, comfortably reproducible microarray innovations wanted this present day to investigate on a wide scale the various diversified genes and gene sequences now on hand from the Human Genome Project.

Example text

As we shall see, in the kingdom of the blind, the animal with even a slightly functioning eye is king. I must confess that I’ve just pulled a small rhetorical trick. The passage I’ve quoted above is not from one of Darwin’s critics, but from Darwin himself. Darwin struggled with the problem of complex organisms such as the eye, but   DARWINIAN DETECTIVES he had formulated a solution (that creationist authors seldom provide). Let’s examine more of what Darwin said about eyes: Reason tells me, that if numerous gradations from an imperfect and simple eye to one perfect and complete, each grade being useful to its possessor, can be shown to exist; as is certainly the case; if further, the eye slightly varies, and the variations be inherited, as is likewise certainly the case; and if such variations should ever be useful to any animal under changing conditions of life, then the difficulty of believing that a perfect and complex eye could be formed by natural selection, though insuperable by our imagination, cannot be considered real.

The paragraph above, though an accurate and well-written description of scientific theories and of biological evolution as a scientific theory, did not come from a scientist. 32 Obviously, they think one can accept evolution and still be a good Episcopalian. Pope John Paul II embraced evolution as being more than “mere hypothesis” in . After John Paul’s death and the election of Pope Benedict XVI as his successor, many have wondered where the Catholic Church stands on evolution. In July , shortly after Benedict’s installation, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn wrote an op-ed to The New York Times with language that appeared to be ID friendly.

But Behe’s thesis is incorrect. The remarkable complexity of biochemical systems can and does evolve via Darwinian processes. Before we delve into the elaborate biochemical details, let’s explore antecedents of Behe’s argument and how biologists have dealt with them. 10 Two hundred years before Behe, the theologian William Paley argued that just as watches show signs of being designed, so do organisms. Darwin was very much aware of Paley and this “argument from design,” and indeed had been impressed by Paley as a young theology student.
