A new genetic study of 53 human populations shows that each falls into one of three genetic groups . For creationists, that division makes plain sense as reflective of the people groups that split off after Babel, all descendants of Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
Human understanding of how genes actually control biological construction is woefully inadequate, albeit advancing more each year. Claims that genome similarity between chimps and humans “prove” evolution are not only misleading; they are based on a considerably immature field of science.
Many people know what their blood type is and understand that blood types must be matched in a medical emergency. With our recent ability to rapidly sequence genes, the ABO blood group is also proving to be a valuable asset for determining human migration patterns and origins.
Denisovans are a recently discovered member of the human family, represented so far by only a finger bone and two teeth from Siberia. However, Denisovan DNA is already better studied than that of Neanderthals. According to the Bible, all human beings are descended from Adam, so we are not surprised to find that Denisovans, Neanderthals, and modern humans share genetic characteristics.
EnhancerFinder, a supercomputer program, is supposedly revealing genetic enhancements that once upon a deep time put an apelike ancestor on the fast track to becoming human.
The HBBP1 gene appears to be a highly functional and cleverly integrated feature of the human genome that is intolerant of mutation.PDF Download
“A close-up view of the human genome has revealed its innermost workings to be far more complex than first thought,” reports a BBC NEWS article on a recent Encyclopaedia of DNA Elements (Encode) study.
New research results comparing the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) have shown substantial divergence between Neandertals and modern humans.
The Human Genome Project has officially finished its task of sequencing the human genome, according to a press conference on Monday, 14 April 2003.
When a new human being is conceived, he or she consists of only one tiny microscopic cell. How does that single cell grow into a complete body?
The recovery of mitochondrial DNA from the right arm bone of the original Neandertal fossil discovered in a cave in the Neander Valley has been hailed as a stunning feat of modern biochemistry.
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible—particularly the book of Genesis—regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.
