    Personal Information

    Dr. Jeanson also holds a BS in Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. While at Harvard, he was actively involved in adult stem cell research and published several peer-reviewed papers in secular journals in his field. His current research involves using DNA comparisons to understand the true origin of species, and he has published groundbreaking results on this question. In addition, he has contributed to several books, including The Design and Complexity of the Cell and In-Depth Creation Basics and Beyond, and he authored The Lost Treasures of Genesis.
