Leading Chinese geneticist on the African Origins of Modern Chinese

Professor Jin Li, a leading geneticist from Fudan University in China, shares his findings that The study used DNA samples from over 160 ethnic groups throughout East Asia (over 20,000 samples). "We did not see any - even one single individual that can be considered descendents of the homo erectus in China. Rather, everybody was a descendent of our ancestors from Africa." http://www.fudan.edu.cn/en/entries/view/965/

How Geneticists Link Genes to Diseases

How Geneticists Link Genes to Diseases

The former director of the National Human Genome Research Institute describes how researchers compare DNA sequences to pinpoint which genes cause which diseases. Question: During your work on the human genome, you linked many genes to specific diseases. How are these links established?Francis Collins:  It's too bad you can't actually see DNA easily under a microscope and scan across a double helix and read out the sequence of bases that amounts to the information content because it would be easier, I think, to explain then how a geneticist goes about tracking down the molecular basis of a disease at the molecular level.  Our methods are indirect—they're very powerful, they're really highly accurate, but they're not as visual as you might like.  We do have methods though, now, that allow you to read out with high accuracy, all three billion of the letters of the DNA instruction book, those letters are actually these chemical bases.  The chemical language of a DNA is a simple one, there's only four letters in the alphabet.  Those bases that we abbreviate A, C, G and T.  and we have methods of being able to compare then the DNA sequence of people who have a disease versus people who don't and look for the critical differences in order to nail down something that might be the cause.   Well since, however, we all differ in our DNA sequence by about a half of one percent, you wouldn't get very far if you basically sequenced my DNA and the DNA of somebody with Parkinson's Disease trying to figure out what the differences were because it would be way too many of them. But if you're willing to do that for a large number of people, you kind of average out all the noise and the difference that matters begins to be more and more clear.  That's an overly simplified description of how a geneticists goes about zeroing in on the actual molecular cause of a complex or a simple disease.  This works most readily for diseases that are highly heritable; cystic fibrosis, Huntington's Disease—those are conditions where as single mutation very reproducibly results in the disease.   It's been a lot tougher for diseases where the inheritance is muddy.  If you take diabetes, for instance, which is what my lab primarily works on, or you take asthma or high blood pressure, that is not a set of conditions where one gene is involved in risk, there are dozens of genes involved in that and no single one of them contributes very much, but you put it all together and the consequence to that individual may tip them over the threshold into having the illness.  We're in the throes right now trying to sort that part out for the common diseases that we know have hereditary influences because they run in families but they're much more complicated than say, cystic fibrosis. Question: Was there anything that totally surprised you in your research on the genome?Francis Collins: There were a lot of surprises a lot of times where you just marveled as what you had uncovered and felt like you must have really somehow missed it when you were making guesses about what would be there.  I guess the one that startled most us the most profoundly was how few protein coding genes there actually are in the genome.  The old paradigm about DNA-makes-RNA-makes-protein, well then a stretch of DNA is going to make a protein, how many genes does it take to specify a human being?  Hooh, you would think there would be an exorbitant number.  And various estimates have been put forward before we knew the answer that we're in the neighborhood of 100,000 to 150,000. Ultimately, it turns out we only have about 20,000 protein coding genes.  A breathtakingly short list of instructions for an organism as complex as homo sapiens.   There are other genes that don't code for protein that are turning out to be pretty important, so in a certain way we're rescuing our sense of complexity by discovering there are other categories or genes that don't have to be of the protein coding sort, but it is still astounding to think that just 20,000 of these protein coding genes is enough to take a single cell, which we all once were and inspire this program of elaborate complex development into a human being, including a nervous which is beyond our ability at the present time to even quite contemplate because of its complexity.

Philadelphia

Tom Hanks, in his Academy Award-winning performance, stars as Andrew Beckett, a successful attorney at a prestigious law firm, who is suddenly fired from his job. The official reason is incompetence, but Andrew suspects the real motive is the fact that he is gay and suffering from the AIDS virus. Andrew decides to fight back, hiring a lawyer of his own, Joe Miller, who must overcome his own homophobic tendencies in order to win his client's wrongful termination suit.

Let's Watch Greaser's Palace | Not PC

Let's Watch Greaser's Palace | Not PC

Zoot-suited Jesse (Allan Arbus, the guest star visiting psychiatrist on M*A*S*H and husband of photographer Diane Arbus) parachutes out of the sky into a western no-man's land dominated by the violent and sadistic Greaser (Albert Henderson, THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE). Sure Jesse can heal the sick and resurrect the dead (including Greaser's son "Homo" [Michael Sullivan, MADMAN], who Greaser kills three times), but he's more interested with meeting up with his agent "Morris" (Don Calfa, RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD) in Jerusalem and becoming a star - Jesse walks on water for entertainment value - than in playing messiah. The enthralled townspeople follow him on his pilgrimage to Jerusalem, but Greaser (who keeps an imprisoned Mariachi band beside his outhouse and has a habit of shooting entertainers who give bad auditions) wants Jesse to stay (and his daughter, exotic dancer Cholera) Luana Anders. A very young Robert Downey Jr. (the son of the director) appears as a Quasimodo-like child. ===== NEW STREAMING SCHEDULE ===== Sunday - 8PM EST - 11PM EST Monday - No Stream Tuesday - 9PM EST - 12AM EST Wednesday - No Stream Thursday - 9PM EST- 12AM EST Friday - 9PM EST - Whenever Saturday - 9PM EST - Whenever ------------RULES------------- 1.
