Yes, it's correct. Thanks for the friendly words (and JohnW sort of). That helped cheer me up, from the depressing F-bombing, on top of all else.

I had a day to work on the hippocampal system. Around 5% of the time the critter will go around the moving invisible shock zone then wait for it to be safe. I then read some of the latest papers on how the hippocampal system might work which led to Hopfield Neural Network attractors and such:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v....9OnjoZS

I'm now trying to outdo myself by wiring up a system with the Hopfield Neural Net in mind as how memory is stored (in biology as opposed to computer code that must be stored in electronic RAM) for quickly finding shortest path to food avoiding places in between at a certain current and future angular time (angle of room cue card relative to arena revolving over time around the rat's arena). I have a circuit on paper with a good chance to working, and will try it out. It's just a step up from what I already have that worked well enough to show I next need to try making each place cell in the network a separate memory system working in parallel with others, as opposed to one for each entire lobe. I'll then essentially be modeling (what by theory qualifies as) “cellular intelligence”.

If this works then I will have saved myself tons of time, trying to model a hippocampal system. So hopefully none mind my focusing on that, for now. I'll check back to see how things are going here, in case there is something else worth replying to, like your reply. I'm feeling older, but at a time like this your wishing me a happy birthday helped me to none the less be glad to made it to this stage of development, of my everything.

MHC/HLA immune genome mutation rates question

AE Public Forum - Sat, 2014-01-18 03:56
Post by qetzal
Keep in mind that each individual can have a mutation. So if you had 100,000 children born in each new generation, you'd expect one new mutation per 3000 bp per generation in the population overall.

I'm sure the actual math is more complicated, but I don't know the details.

I'm not sure if there is a probationary period. Couple of options. Find an existing thread with a similar topic heading and post in that.

Post it in this thread and I or one of the regulars can set up a thread for you. The thread with the most recent comment comes to the top of the topic list so it should be visible for a while.

Thanks.  As you can see, things seem to be working ok now.

MHC/HLA immune genome mutation rates question

AE Public Forum - Fri, 2014-01-17 18:06
Post by Friar Broccoli
Hi;

I am trying to write up a shorter and clearer (so creationists can read it) version of Lenny Flank's argument about mutation rates as implied by the number of alleles in the MHC complex.  I also want this rewrite because (among other things) the creationist response focuses on his use "beneficial" mutations. (See: http://creation.com/bible-t....versity )


In my first draft I began:

_start_
MHC regions are usually less than 2000 bp long in a genome that is 3,000,000,000 bp long.


Observationally we know there are a 100 mutations per generation over the entire genome.

Therefore in a region that is:

- 300,000,000 bp long we would expect one mutation per generation.
- 3,000,000 bp long we would expect one mutation ever 100 generations.
- 3,000 bp long we would expect one mutation ever 100,000 generations.

Since we sometimes see more than 1000 mutations (alleles) in the 2,000 bp long MHC immune complexes this suggests these areas have been mutating for 100,000,000 generations.
_stop_

Here I said to myself 100,000,000 generations seems like way too many, unless (for example the mouse MHC complex looks fairly similar - does it?).  If it does not, what is a more reasonable estimate of the number of generations to achieve the diversity we see in the human MHC complexes?

Also is the observed generation to generation rate of mutations in the MHC complexes much different from that observed in the rest of the human genome?

I just registered hoping to be able to ask a question here.  But when I try "new topic" in:

Antievolution.org Discussion Board > From the Panda's Thumb > After the Bar Closes

(the only place that seems active) I get the message:
"Sorry, you do not have permission to start a topic in this forum. You are currently logged in as Friar Broccoli"

What do I need to do?

it's a slightly technical question about counting generations based on mutation rates.

Quote (GaryGaulin @ Jan. 09 2014,20:26)My scientific mission now has me in a global computer forum with a scientific theory that (according to what was said) over 99% of scientists agreed had to be pseudoscience. I'm again inviting trouble like crazy again, with something that was meant to scientifically be, because it's there (in science awaiting more detailed explanation). It's again good clean science fun, but what it is makes big waves off in some directions, where who knows what will happen next..

Quote (jeffox @ Jan. 08 2014,13:12) Quote Back in the Ben Stein movie days I let the NCSE know that they needed to change tactics, not be polar opposite to the other political extreme, but nothing changed. I do not want to see them lose all their credibility, but they're only helping make it so that they are no better than the worse in this forum. It's like the two enable each other. Where the NCSE long ago fixed their Expelled Exposed (making it more convincing as well) then went from there, what goes on in this forum would not now be accepted behavior. It would have then been easy for me to find help maybe from one of the many local colleges, where they end up in the science news for novel cell models, instead of their having to worry about their careers by getting involved in something good like that.

Why not get a job and then actually go to one of those colleges and LEARN SOMETHING?  Then, maybe you'll realize how wrong you are about the politicization (and polarization) of the NCSE, and how thier scientific 'snobbery' is necessary to screen out the nonsense of the cranks and crackpots that you support.  Until then, please stop blaming us for your own misfortune - it's been based on YOUR OWN DECISIONS AND ACTIONS, not ours.

Of course, continuing your usual idiot ravings in here will still result in scoffing and outright laughter on our part.  We've already told you (many times) how to solve your problems.  Not listening isn't our fault.  

Whatta hoot!
