New hypothesis on the origin of "junk" DNA: IU News …

Also, so-called 'junk DNA' is by no means any evidence or proof of 'extraterrestrial'anything.

The Myth of Junk DNA – Discovery Institute Press

The discovery – that a small portion of our non-coding DNA does directly regulate some genes – is a natural conclusion to, and in further support of, the genetic library hypothesis.

Before the example, I declare that, I haven’t read the wide range of content of this site, just browsing, and read some, like this.

A new hypothesis on the origin of 'junk' DNA | …

The alien chunks within Human DNA, Professor Chang further observes, "have its own veins, arteries, and its own immune system that vigorously resists all our anti-cancer drugs."

Non-coding sequences, originally known as

Upon closer examination, it has long been known (as early as 1951 through Barbara McClintock) that gene regulation exists within the genome and that all of these regulators are not fully known or understood. Furthermore, the idea of “junk” DNA has been held up as support of an evolutionary development model and has been a hot-button issue for creation science proponents. Much of the literature and impetus to fight the idea of “junk” DNA has come through creation science sources with a specific axe to grind.

Creationists predicted that since God doesn’t make junk, we will find important uses for so-called “junk DNA.”

The hypothesis explains a mysterious genetic difference between bacteria and eukaryotes, a giant group of organisms that includes animals, plants, fungi, algae and other protists.

The safe-neighborhood hypothesis of junk DNA.

-- The explosion of "junk" DNA in animals, plants and fungi may be the simple result of their ancestors' reduced population sizes, according to a new hypothesis proposed by Indiana University Bloomington and University of Oregon scientists in the Nov.

The chromosomal space taken up by just 30 human genes and the DNA within and between those genes could easily accommodate whole bacterial genomes containing 3,000 or 4,000 genes, Lynch said.

While some of what geneticists have called junk DNA is turning out to be not so junky after all, Lynch said a substantial fraction of such genetic material probably deserves the name.

Darwin's God: Junk DNA: The Real Story

But since large-scale mutations -- such as the random insertion of large DNA sequences within or between genes -- are almost always bad for an organism, Lynch and University of Oregon computer scientist John Conery suggest the only way junk DNA can survive the streamlining force of natural selection is if natural selection's potency is weakened.
