Fascinating discussion on mutation

Postby Brian Jordan » Tue Nov 25, 2014 10:10 pm

I just heard the first half hour or so of this on the World Service this morning. A researcher has come to the conclusion that the chance of the occurrence of any particular mutation leading to a specific change in the properties of a protein is remote. An idea the creationists will love to hear. However, he argues that there are a vast number of small changes to protein sequences that can all lead to a similar end result, thus making a particular effect of mutation quite likely after all.
Well worth another listen for me.http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02c3zgc (45 mins)
