Would you like to learn more?

Howdy, folks!

I have been receiving a number of comments from people who say they are struggling with the blog concepts. As a teacher, I find this a little frustrating because I have no idea what concepts are causing issues without more information. I would like to engage in a more interactive discussion, much like a student does on those rare occasions when they actually visit the professor during office hours and ask him/her to please explain something they are not getting in class. I have found in the past that addressing one person’s questions can satisfy the needs of many other people as well. If you are a bit shy, that’s all right too. Just send me an e mail at fabernathy@sbcglobal.net. If you don’t want me posting your question and my answer to the blog, please say so and I will respect your wishes.

Let’s do this!


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.
