To be a Scientist Means to Follow the data

This is a very sad commentary for me to share, especially during the holidays. I’ll be honest: I really don’t like sharing it but I feel compelled to do so. This is what seems to invariably happen whenever organizations become too big to fail while chasing the almighty dollar no matter what the “cost”. It makes no difference what that organization might be: Ā businesses, charities, churches, political parties, bureaucracies, government or that last “bastion” of truth… science. Money and power are highly corrupting influences to any kind of human institution.

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.
