My point is that this study....like all others into this subject is completely inconclusive. I won't even get into the "who cares" factor....I'd personally rather these monies be spent on some ailment of a more life threatening type.
"Mapping" DNA is very different than actually knowing what it does.
"Junk DNA" is DNA that scientists have no effing clue as to it's purpose as well as it's interaction with other DNA.
The only logical conclusion one can arrive at is that we (humans) still do not know enough about the intricacies of this subject to come to any definitive answer.
This scientist just suckered some moron or group of morons to pay him to conduct a study into a subject that we (humans) do not have the basis to extrapolate a definitive conclusion from due to incomplete data.
More power to him. I hope he made enough for a nice new car or an in ground swimming pool.
Get back to me when every molecule of "junk DNA" can be properly examined and the function of which can be determined.
Until then the jury is still out.

I'm of the opinion we shouldn't encourage the destructive and deadly homosexual lifestyle on children. And pointing out the fact no gay gene exists and that homosexuality isn't hardwired as the head of the Human Genome Project has pointed out is worth my time.
