Skip to comments.Scientists find second, 'hidden' language in human genetic code
Posted on 12/14/2013 12:28:54 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
U.S. geneticists say a second code hiding within DNA changes how scientists read its instructions and interpret mutations to make sense of health and disease.
Since the genetic code was deciphered in the 1960s, scientists have assumed it was used exclusively to write information about proteins, but University of Washington scientists say they've discovered genomes use the genetic code to write two separate "languages."
One, long understood, describes how proteins are made, while the other instructs the cell on how genes are controlled. One language is written on top of the other, which is why the second language remained hidden for so long, a university release said Thursday.
"For over 40 years we have assumed that DNA changes affecting the genetic code solely impact how proteins are made," UW genome sciences Professor John Stamatoyannopoulos said. "Now we know that this basic assumption about reading the human genome missed half of the picture. These new findings highlight that DNA is an incredibly powerful information storage device, which nature has fully exploited in unexpected ways."
Parts of the genetic code have two meanings, one related to protein sequence, and one related to gene control, the researchers said, and both apparently evolved in concert with each other....

>> For over 40 years we have assumed
Assumptions are the cornerstones of arrogance.
And as we’re so oft-reminded this time of year, there is no God...
Wouldn’t surprise me if we end up seeing live dodos all of a sudden. Or even thylacines.
Remember the presumptions over the coelacanths until they were discovered alive in the 1930s?
On this day, 14DEC1896 James H. “Jimmy” Doolittle was born. Gen. Doolittle, did a job or two and then passed on 27SEPT1993. Genetics, might be something to it. Huh?
That's OK, not to worry! Given enough Time and Random Chance, all this research will happen anyway. If not here, then in one of the Parallel Universes....
Obama may believe that DNA can be programmed to produce the most radical socialists who would mirror his “principles”.
Yeah, put enough chimps in a room with typewriters, etc., etc...
The purpose Tsoukalos is promoted is so that the divine origins of the human genetic code can be denied via another controlled dialectic.
The American government cannot last forever, not with these policies, and laws. What happens when 47% of the population cannot eat?
Did you read the comments under that article? What is it with these busybodies that feel the need to tell everybody what to eat and not eat all the time?
I bet they all believe in chemtrails too.
Wait until they decode the third language....
"Hi guys! It's Me, GOD. How will you explain this message in evolutionary terms? You know I love you, but sometimes you really are a bunch of self absorbed idiots. I'll still be here when you wake up to Reality. Love, God"
(BTW, the above message would translate into the native language of the DNA researcher, no matter who did the analysis. Would that not throw them for a loop!)
Maybe I should Copyright this as a storyline for a Science Fiction short story?
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.
5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7 Utterly amazed, they asked: Arent all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 9 Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,[b] 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabswe hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues! 12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, What does this mean?
13 Some, however, made fun of them and said, They have had too much wine.
Very Intelligently Designed.
Believe me, I do not want to go there and also believe nobody in their right mind wants to go there and yes, that time is coming. Pure insanity will be the law of the land then and that time approaches quickly. if not awaiting in the shadows, but you knew all I typed anyway. Am still looking for a way out for me and mine. Have a plan but what the heck good is a plan when nukes start to pop.
“Scientists find second, ‘hidden’ language in human genetic code”
Maybe this is the “”hidden language” the Mandela interpreter was using at the eulogy!
And something this incredibly complex all "evolved" and came about because of "random mutations" - according to the fools.
The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.
That's like saying, "I was at a junk yard, the wind blew pieces against each other and made a 747."
These are fools.
In my undergrad and graduate programs I took several microbiology and biochemistry courses. What I learned was very unsatisfying and I felt that somehow something missing. Thinking through this a bit helps fill in some of the holes in my understanding.
I absolutely resonate with your comment. It was the obvious question: how did it get to Point “B”?
And you get obammycare.
But, but, we had scientific consensus that there was only one language. So why we’re they allowed to research this?
It might even be able to produce differentiated species starting from the same code.
Certainly sounds promising in terms of addressing certain types of diseases.
I tried to warn scientists. I told them they are too arrogant. Too quick to say “I’ve got the answer!”
They should stand in awe of the wonders of the natural world, and realize that they don’t have the final answers
How obama, biden, pelosi, holder, sebelius, etc. came out of the genetic code.
If they spent all their time doing that we'd never have any answers.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. So far we're only scratching the surface of understanding what goes on in those mysterious things called life and consciousness.
That’s one advantage to the discovery.
Ian Anderson- The Secret Language of Birds
Science is method, not a body of knowledge; scientists sometimes get caught up in their private concerns (like, the paper at the basis of one’s entire career just got shredded by some up-and-coming), but scientists are well aware that knowledge is never complete.
This contrasts with true believers, for example, the skepticultists.
“Remember the presumptions over the coelacanths until they were discovered alive in the 1930s?”
There is a cable show saying
that Magalodon (SP?) is still swimming around out there. The ocean is certainly big enough but I’m not sure I’d believe something so huge and voracious has been missed entirely.
Science, as a discipline, has no mechanism where one can assert a ‘final answer’.
Great comments. I think it is amazing that St. Augustine had similar observations over 1600 years ago:
For just as that man who knows how to possess a tree, and give thanks
to thee for the use of it—although he may not know how many feet high
it is or how wide it spreads—is better than the man who can measure it
and count all its branches, but neither owns it nor knows or loves its
Creator: just so is a faithful man who possesses the world’s wealth as
though he had nothing, and possesses all things through his union
through thee, whom all things serve, even though he does not know the
circlings of the Great Bear. Just so it is foolish to doubt that this
faithful man may truly be better than the one who can measure the
heavens and number the stars and weigh the elements, but who is
forgetful of thee “who hast set in order all things in number, weight,
and measure.” 
From his Confessions, Book 5, Chapter 4.
That appears to be an unassigned character string.
Ah, another example of how the modern Educational-Union Complex has failed the young minds of today.
Tsk, tsk, tsk.
The correct phrase is "Drink your Ovaltine!"
beat me to it.
You are making me realize how unlettered I am, having never read “Confessions”, among other notable works.
Excellent quote! Are you, by chance, a classical scholar?
No, I’m just a simple Catechist that works with teens. St. Augustine is a favorite of mine though.
Hey, they plagiarized that line from the movie "Contact".
Bravo! I salute you!
Sounds like holographic memory storage. Kind of a 3-d matrix. It allows you to stuff all sorts of information in a small space.
Yeah, evolution came up with that.
