Are complex layers of chromosomal superstructure being virtually ignored by the scientific community?

Conventional science tells us that chromosomes are arranged in a linear fashion with the genes spread over them like beads on a string. Simple, easy to understand. But is that really the case? What if there is more to it than that? What if chromosomal superstructure is incredibly complex? And scientists are studying them as if they exist in only two dimensions instead of three? In terms of complexity, one could consider multiple layers of dimensions. Or not. Is this important to know? Only if you want to get a better handle on how they really work.


About frankabernathy

I am a retired cell biologist and alumnus of Ohio State University. I became interested in chromosomes as far back as the 1960's when I wrote a term paper on the effects of radiomimetic drugs on chromosomes. I was fascinated at how they could break apart and reform new structures so easily. I became further involved in the early 1970's after taking a cytogenetics course at the University of Arkansas. I took that knowledge with me to Ohio State in 1980 where I eventually worked on my research and completed my Ph.D. dissertation, "Studies on Eukaryotic DNA Superstructure". My studies and later research suggested that the DNA within the eukaryotic chromosome is not the simple, linear molecular thread so widely suggested in all the classic textbooks published today. Instead, it may be the culmination of a geologically rapid set of endosymbiotic events where microorganisms plug into each other to create something greater than themselves.
