Understanding the role of genetic methods in the control of mosquito borne disease under increased insecticide resistance and continued climate warming scenarios

Author: Bryan P. White, MS Biology, MPH; bpcwhite@gmail.com Publication Date: 11/20/2019 Global clinical significance of mosquito borne disease Arthropod borne disease (ABDs), diseases transmitted to humans via arthropod vectors, are of major global health concern because of their high mortality rates and potential to undergo range expansions due to climate change (Mayer et al., 2017).Continue reading “Understanding the role of genetic methods in the control of mosquito borne disease under increased insecticide resistance and continued climate warming scenarios”

Components of the Information-Theoretic Model of Evolution: Information, Structure and Complexity

Continuing on from my previous post, I will elaborate on some proposed components of an information-theoretic model of evolution (ITME). Here are some key points in the development of the ITME that I’ve touched on so far. Evolution is the spacetime of biology – without it we cannot construct an “M-Theory” – a mother-of-all theories.Continue reading “Components of the Information-Theoretic Model of Evolution: Information, Structure and Complexity”

Towards an Information-Theoretic Model of Evolution (ITME)

I have started many web projects over the years, but never really got around to finishing any of them. I suppose the issue has always been scope, timing, and funding. So as time has passed, my projects have been driven more towards broader scope, and therefore longer timing. And what has broader scope and greaterContinue reading “Towards an Information-Theoretic Model of Evolution (ITME)”
