So now the instructions in the genome are separate from the genome?
I realize that’s a simplification, but that’s like saying if a fast food restaurant reorganizes the meals in its number system, but didn’t change the order of the numbers, that the menu hasn’t actually changed.
#10 is no longer a burger and fries, now it’s a chicken sandwich.
No, It’s like saying that if a fast food franchisee notices that customers like pickles more than the corporate template calls for, when he opens a new restaurant he’ll order extra pickle deliveries rather than following the corporate template. Same thing goes for parking lot layout, interior paint schemes, art on the walls, etc.
If I breed two chihuahuas, I’m not going to get a generic dog.
