Gene ping for thick hair and small breasts.

Interesting how subject to change we are. Wonder about intelligence. East Asians perform better on IQ tests than Europeans and Africans.

But a second researcher had a different explanation and a third researcher had still another idea. And someone else will offer up more.

Who is going to tell the East Asian women they can’t be on the Swedish Bikini Team because they have a mutation?

I guess the gene mutation also makes you smarter!

Funny if how Ron Paul said there were different races everyone would immediately call him a racist...

The yellow fever gene, because obviously the gene was selected for via sex...

There are two conflicting notions here that co-exist. While mutation certainly happens, and happens a lot, the overwhelming majority of mutations are unsuccessful, either resulting in failure, or never leading to expression, or preservation in the genetic line.

Therefore, natural selection can pick and choose its choices from among available ancient and recent mutations, and in a relatively few generations, create a new dominant pattern or subspecies.

But wait, there’s more. Over much longer periods of time, species try to develop a “chromosomal balance”, in which they might have more chromosomes for greater diversity, or fewer chromosomes, to save energy.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_organisms_by_chromosome_count

For this reason, the organism with the most known number of chromosomes is actually a fern, known as “Adders-tongue” with 1440 chromosomal pairs. Humans only have 46.

And oddly enough, for uncounted generations, the human species is trying to *lower* that number. Our two sex chromosomes, ‘X’ and ‘Y’, used to both be ‘X’, but one of the ‘X’s lost one of its “legs”, so is now a ‘Y’ chromosome, called the male sex chromosome.

And the ‘Y’ chromosome is on the way out. The species is moving to cull it from our genome, and the current ‘X’ sex chromosome will become a ‘Y’, and another ‘X’ chromosome will take its place.

Right now, one of the predominant causes of retardation is called “fragile ‘X’ syndrome”, in which these children’s ‘X’ sex chromosome has a weak or detached “leg”.

No one quite knows how, when there is a successful human mutation to 45 chromosomes, how or if they will be able to reproduce with 46 chromosome humans.

What are the “characteristically identified teeth” that the article refers to? How are they different?

"Yana G. Kamberov and Pardis C. Sabeti at the Broad Institute in Cambridge, Mass., decided to test the gene in mice, where its effects could be more easily explored."

The next test:
