Question epigenetic evolution?



Good Morning,

I’m a student in master from the university of Strasbourg, France.
Yesterday, I’ve found a very interesting article, and I’ve some questions about it.

ScienceDaily (Apr. 17, 2009).

A new nucleotid is discovered, the 5-hydroxymethylcytosine.

I know that important modifications of nucleotids can introduce mutations in DNA during the replication if they are not corrected.

So, If the environnement modifie a nucleotide by methylation, hydroxylation, or other ; an epigenetic modification. Is it would be possible that a real modification is realized in the nucleic sequence, and finally, an heritable modification of the genomic sequence ?

Thank you for comments.

And escuse my poor english.

Bonjour,

Je suis étudiant en Master à l'Université de Strasbourg, France.
Hier, j'ai trouvé un article très intéressant, et j'aurais quelques questions.

ScienceDaily (le 17 avr. 2009).

Un nouveau nucléotide fut découvert, le hydroxymethylcytosine-5.

Je sais que des modifications importantes des nucléotides peuvent présenter des mutations en ADN pendant la réplication si elles ne sont pas corrigées.

Donc, si l'environnement modifie un nucléotide par méthylation, hydroxylation ou autre; modifications dites épigénétiques. Serait-il alors possible que par une réplication erronée, on obtienne une modification dans la séquence nucléique, et donc une modification pouvant être transmis comme une mutation?

Merci

Bonjour, that is a very interesting thought I will do some reading on 5-hydroxymethylcytosine and get back to you

thanks for the new information

Hi,

I am new to this forum so I am not sure whether I am posting this in the right place.

I have become increasingly interested in the work of independent researcher Tony Wright and his epigenetic theory on human evolution, the impact this has had on the brain and therefore our consciousness.

Outside of his newly published book 'Left in the Dark', which is gaining rave reviews by an ever increasing list of academics and pioneers in their respected fields - he has also recently written a condensed article called:
'Consciousness and the Direction of Structure' - for the Beckley foundation's new website - brainwaving.com the article can be found there.

You can also find out more about the work here and read what other academics have got to say at Wrights website 'Left in the Dark'.

I am interested in continuing to open up increasing debate around this work for those who have an interest or education in epigenetics, human evolution, and consciousness.

Thanking you in advance,

Letitia

Hi Letitia

Sorry for my answer in late.
I'm very happy that you have posted here!

I've gone on the "Left in the Dark" website, and I'm very very interested too!

Now, I'm reading "Consciousness and the Direction of Structure" on brainwaving.com.
So, thank you very much for all these.

I'm agree for debate, my first interest is epigenetic, but human evolution and consciousness are connected.

I'm in a molecular genetic master. And I see more and more things on the effect of environnement on the regulation of genes.

But all these modifications are reversible.
So, for me, Epigenetic give us an update for evolution theory. Finally, between Darwin and Lamarck.

What do you think of that?

Sincerely,

Ghislain


Sorry for my poor english.

Hi , thank you for taking the time to read the research.

let me know more of your thoughts when you have understood it all more.

please also forward this research on to anyone you think might be interested.

I believe wholeheartedly that the human race depends upon it!!

Letitia

I can't post a reply to your priavte message.

Yes of course I have read Left in the Dark, lots of times, and I gain more understanding each time.

The work presented is currently a theory and needs testing. The experiments have already been designed and now we are looking for funding.

Have you recieved your copy yet?

check out the downloads on Tony's website they also help greatlywith what is being presented.

no problem, it's an error.

I hope receive it the next week.

You say "we are looking for funding". What's your job? Are you in this very interesting project?

I'm looking the downloads. Thank you.
