Tangled Bank #106 at Nobel Intent

Our collection of links to good science writing is up on Nobel Intent, part of Ars Technica. Follow the link to Tangled Bank 106.

Hmm, this looks interesting:

Darwin’s tomatoes, incidentally, show that a single base change in regulatory DNA can radically alter an organism’s morphology. The Tangled Up in Blue Guy then tracks what happens as such mutations spread within a population in an easy-to-follow discourse on population genetics.

Tangled Bank #105 at The Beagle Project

logo for Tangled BankThe latest issue of Tangled Bank is hosted at The Beagle Project blog. See Tangled Bank 105 at The Beagle Project blog.

Welcome, readers, to this tag-teamed edition of the Tangled Bank blog carnival.

In the left-justified corner, all the way from the north Yorkshire coast, not far from where Darwin ‘took the waters’ in Ilkley, it’s Peter McGrath.

And in the right-justified corner, coming to you from London, just a few miles away from Downe Bank, Darwin’s inspiration for the tangled bank where “endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved”, it’s Karen James.

Well, you glorious swine. Speaking for myself, my blogreading life was full enough without discovering some of the new delights carnivalled here. The long evening reading all these posts has been a ‘mental riot’ (Darwin’s description of the intellectual ferment when he was incubating The Origin), for which many thanks and the RSS has a slew of new entries. A tangled bank is not a monoculture, and I think we can offer something for all here.

I would never call our dear readers much less our prolific bank-tanglers ‘swine’, however glorious, but I certainly do share Peter’s admiration for this fortnight’s entries.
