Nutrient-dependent / pheromone-controlled social structure

Wang et al (2013) make it clearer that epigenetic modifications of genes found in social chromosomes entered continuum of adaptive evolution before the sex chromosomes.

Random mutations: nothing adaptive in 3 billion years

This is an open access article. Any advocate of adaptive evolution via random mutations can attempt to find evidence that I could not find by scanning it.

A “new” view of evolution sans mutations

Is there a simpler “proof” that makes those who think that random mutations cause adaptive evolution appear even more ridiculous?

Epigenetics and metabolism converge with pheromone production

Shall we attribute to him the inability to see that metabolism and epigenetics converge with food odors and the metabolism of nutrient chemicals to pheromones that act on precisely the same molecular mechanisms of adaptive evolution found in species from microbes to man?

Non-random evolution of a “molecular handshake”

glucose is a conserved energy source for yeasts and it also regulates gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) neurosecretory cells of brain tissue

Adaptive evolution: Genetic selection against some disorders

a model for adaptive evolution, for example, that is not nutrient chemical-dependent and pheromone-controlled?

Epigenetic effects underlie sexual preferences IV

I include more information about the molecular mechanisms responsible for “…sex-specific regulation of miRNA levels that are known to influence sexually dimorphism of mRNA concentrations in the brains of mice” and in other species from microbes to man.

A mathematical model of phenotypic cause, effects on genes, and affects on behavior

the only thing wrong with mathematical models of cause and effect is that they attribute indirect genetic effects, direct genetic effects, and affects on behavior to something unknown

Fish Odor Syndrome

… a recently released report that also helps extend the model, by way of the honeybee, to mammals. I will elaborate on the latest report to incorporate a mammalian model in my next publication.

One of the clearest examples of epigenetic effects

the honeybee model organism links the epigenetic effects of nutrient chemical-dependent pheromone-controlled adaptive evolution to genes, behavior, and back in species from microbes to man.
