This has got to be a hoax - a late April Fool's joke...

That was a fascinating article, but puzzling as well. "Junk DNA"
has been tentatively renamed "Regulatory DNA" since it appears
to regulate (control) gene enhancement and repression, protein
transcription, and embryonic development.

The so-called alu "comment symbols" ( /* and */ ) could just
as easily be "control symbols" meaning "start control" and
"end control" rather than start/end comment.
Examples of that are probably everywhere in control systems -
certainly in mainframe Job Control Language, network
communication protocols, etc.

That a particular cancer-causing DNA sequence is apparently
missing its beginning comment symbol, could just as easily be
interpreted to mean that it's missing its beginning control
symbol, due to a genetic mutation which dropped the leading alu.
Insert the leading alu, and you turn off the cancer-causing DNA,
and probably invoke some unknown control function.

Why would Prof. Chang reach the conclusion that ET's wrote a
vast amount of DNA code with 97% of it commented-out, when the
research is showing that "junk DNA" is regulatory in nature, and
that they forgot to consider that when they named it? The only
reason it was called "junk" is because it didn't code for
proteins - a hasty and probably invalid assumption. But to make
the leap to "DNA code written by aliens - just remove the
comment symbols and become superman" seems like an incredible
reach. I think a little more research is needed.


Great concept, though!
