Evolution and Selection of Quantitative Traits is available on Kindle format. I have most population and quantitative genetics texts, but these are not optimal for portability. They are big and heavy. Evolution and Selection of Quantitative Traits is not cheap, but it’s over 1,000 pages. Merry Christmas to me!
Dante is sequencing my whole genome. As in, the process has begun! I will be posting a Dropbox link to the VCF file at a minimum since I promised I would post it if I had it done about ten years ago.
People ask me of Dante is legit. I purchased my kit in early June. So it’s been a while, but the results are now coming back (my father in law got his back about a month ago). So Dante does get around to it eventually.
Since it’s CyberMonday, I should mention that Jennifer Doudna’s A Crack in Creation: Gene Editing and the Unthinkable Power to Control Evolution is on sale.
In Prince Andrew Scandal, Prince Charles Emerges as Monarch-in-Waiting. When you are making Charles look like he has gravitas.
The last (porn) picture shows: Once dotted with dozens of adult cinemas, L.A. now has only two. They’re like James Monroe, who continued to dress in the style of the Revolutionary era long after it was out of fashion.
Distinct genetic variation and heterogeneity of the Iranian population. Iran seems to have gotten the “steppe” between 2000 and 1000 BC.
Alanis Morissette Isn’t Angry Anymore. But ‘Jagged Little Pill’ Rages On. OK, Boomer, you are finally retiring, and Generation X editors are making the calls about the nostalgic retrospectives.
Does Who You Are at 7 Determine Who You Are at 63? Back when Netflix was still DVDs I binge-watched this. Didn’t watch the last installment.
Brad Gobright, a Throwback Climber on the Fringes of a Sport. We are a crazy species.
What to read on it? The Great Cauldron: A History of Southeastern Europe, The Boundless Sea: A Human History of the Oceans, and Cognitive Gadgets: The Cultural Evolution of Thinking. My “stack” is getting thick, and I like long long books. But it is what it is.
Kamala Harris aide bolts to Bloomberg campaign. The whole thing is funny. I dislike Kamala’s authoritarian streak. Like Young Pompey.
With Brutal Crackdown, Iran Is Convulsed by Worst Unrest in 40 Years. Not to sound Marxist, but it looks like problems with the base may result in a change in the ideological superstructure.
