Ancient people just are not extinct because of the immune genes “traitors”

Ancient About 100 thousand years ago the future of humanity was under threat: the genus Homo numbered hardly more than 10 thousand individuals lived exclusively in Africa. Genetic data obtained by researchers at the University of California at San Diego (USA), as the reason for the sharp reduction in the population indicate a bacterial infection. But after a few tens of thousands of years man has spread around the world: it has become possible due to the fact that genĂ³m our ancestors got rid of two genes-“traitors” who cooperate with the infection.

Rice with human genes is grown in Kansas

Rice,humanThe rice which is strictly certified as organic, or if it does not come to you with this farm, where you know that there are no GMO crops, but now rice that you eat at home or in cafes, may well contain elements of a person – it could be rice, which is embedded in the human gene. Biotech company Ventria Bioscience is currently growing a figure in an area of 3,200 acres in Junction City, Kansas – and perhaps in other places – and most ordinary people have no idea about it.Starting around 2006, Ventria is growing rice slowly, which has been genetically modified (GM) genes from the human liver for the production of artificial proteins and their use in pharmaceuticals.

Under the microscope : Genes and physical characteristics

Now that we have shown how cells maintain their characteristics after dividing, you may wonder how all this relates to the problem of human races. Application of all this as follows: physical characteristics, which we mentioned in the previous chapter, are defined chemistry cells. All that somehow affects the chemistry of cells, may somehow affect bodily physical characteristics.
As an example, let’s look at skin color.

From parent to child : Variations among the genes

As we have said, the genes control the development of enzymes and thus control the nature of physical characteristics. Unfortunately, our knowledge of the chemistry of cells is very limited. We can hardly ever know exactly what kind of enzyme or enzymes in the usual physical characteristics. In fact, we know that the enzyme tyrosinase is required for the formation of melanin, and it determines the color of skin, hair and eyes. We believe, however, that this process also requires other enzymes.

For this reason, you can skip the details of the enzyme, and only connect with the physical characteristics of the gene. For example, we could talk about baldness gene, the gene of the five fingers or eye color gene. Sometimes we would feel comfortable talking about the different genes that affect the same physical characteristics, but in different ways. Eye color – a good example. We could talk about the gene for brown eyes and blue eye gene.
