Benevolent Misanthrope: A research team led by Dr. John Stamatoyannopoulos, University of Washington associate professor of genome sciences and of medicine, made the discovery.

Damn, Greece, WTF?


His name is even more complex than the DNA codes.

Nobody would take him serious if he shortened his name to John Stamos.

Could also be Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivruski IV. At least it's not Tikki Tikki Tembo-no Sa Rembo-chari Bari Ruchi-pip Peri Pembo.

Felgraf: entropic_existence: Ugh, sorry as someone who works in genomics I get irritated every time epigenetics is thrown around, usually because for some reason both in the press and among researchers it became a sort of buzzword of the week deal. Talked about in the media like it was something totally new (it wasn't) and completely altering our perceptions of biological inheritance and evolution (it wasn't). Granted there is lots of cool research involving epigenetics, but really just like there is lots of cool research in, well... pretty much everything.

Ah, fair enough. It's okay, I feel that way whenever someone throws the word "Nano" around (and I'm doing my PhD in nanophysics/nanoengineering/nanotech).


Meh, nanoepigenetics is what all the cool kids are talking about these days.

Sooo...  scientists admit they were wrong all about DNA and genetics?  The "science" supposedly underpinning Darwinist "science?"

Shocking.

This proves, once again, that Darwinistic evolution is just a theory, and not sound science.  It certainly should not be taught in schools.

That guy's name shows he is clearly a bacteria in disguise, someone get me the bleach spray and some paper towels, I got this.

Don't feel like trying to figure out how the square would match to the alphabet with only 16 max characters.

Well, you could just assume the pairs represent single letters and attack it as a monoalphabetic cipher.

Yeah, I kinda got that part already.  Given the structure it looks like you're just going A B C D etc. but with repetitions of previously seen characters inserted in random places.

 |A C G T
A|A B C D
C|E F G H
G|I J K L
T|M N O P


which would make your code:
AA AC AG AT CA AC CC CG CT CA GA GC GG GT CG AT CA CG TA TC TG CC TT GC AC
A  B  C  D  E  B  F  G  H  E  I  J  K  L  G  D  E  G  M  N  O  F  P  J  B


And the repeats are BEGDEGJB, which could be "SATIATES".
