Wanted: Help from generation Xer’s, millennials, or just about anybody younger than I am which is pretty much everybody at this point.  I am a baby boomer in the woods when it comes to social media. I admit it. Guilty as charged. I can’t keep up with the youngsters anymore, even grandkids on bicycles!  Here’s the problem: I am so old fashioned and old school that I actually thought it would be a good idea to allow comments on my blog. The idea was to interact with the public and get some honest feedback.  Now I get comments from people selling something like viagra or other junk. It seems the bots have latched onto my website as a feeding station for selling other people’s stuff. I guess they take whatever they can get; pretty desperate if you ask me. So let me make this sweet and simple: If you send me a comment from another website that has anything to do with selling something, don’t bother because I will trash it no matter how generically “flattering” it may be. Simple as that. I’m just an old school retired scientist from the mid 20th century and I don’t need to be doing any of this. If you want to learn something, by all means, send me a message. If not, go away and harass somebody else.

Best regards,



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.
