Professional, peer-reviewed papers in bioinformatics from the perspective of the recent Creation and the global Flood within a biblical framework
Facts Cannot be Ignored When Considering the Origin of Life #3: Necessity of Matching the Coding and the Decoding Systems
DNA, however long it is and however many genes it can encode, is nothing without the molecular machineries to decode its encoded genes.
Facts Cannot Be Ignored When Considering the Origin of Life #2: Challenges in Generating the First Gene-encoding Template DNA or RNA
This article argues that it is practically impossible to generate the first DNA (or RNA) template abiotically.
Homo naledi Probably Not Part of the Human Holobaramin Based on Baraminic Re-Analysis Including Postcranial Evidence
With the inclusion of 37 postcranial morphological characters, this work attempts to reassess the baraminic classification of H. naledi.
This paper argues that the issue with the origin of life and the origin of biodiversity is not an issue of time, though deep time is problematical.
This study shows that created heterozygosity, together with natural processes that are observable, is sufficient to account for species’ diversity.
Using Taxonomically Restricted Essential Genes to Determine Whether Two Organisms Can Belong to the Same Family Tree
How are all life forms connected? Are they linked by one giant family tree, a web, or a forest of family trees?
The mechanism of speciation remains one of the most contested scientific questions among both evolutionists and creationists.
Information Processing Differences Between Bacteria and Eukarya—Implications for the Myth of Eukaryogenesis
Based on differences in gene sets and molecular machines between bacteria and eukarya, we continue to demonstrate that unbridgeable evolutionary chasms exist.
Information Processing Differences Between Archaea and Eukarya—Implications for Homologs and the Myth of Eukaryogenesis
In the grand evolutionary paradigm, the origin of the eukaryotic cell represents one of the great mysteries and key hypothetical transitions of life.
Most literature states the average dinosaur was only the size of a sheep. This paper hopefully assists creationists base statements on the best available data.
Discerning Tyrants from Usurpers: A Statistical Baraminological Analysis of Tyrannosauroidea Yielding the First Dinosaur Holobaramin
In this study, I analyzed a theropod dinosaur group, Tyrannosauroidea, through the use of statistical baraminology.
That psychological properties can be attributed to a brain is a popular notion, even among Christians. This paper argues that such claims are incorrect.
Bioinformatics on Answers Research Journal
With the discovery of the structure of DNA, biology was plunged into a new era. With the advent of DNA sequencing, biologists suddenly found themselves flooded with data. In fact, they often had more data than they could sort through manually. To help alleviate this problem, the field of bioinformatics was developed, which combined computer programs and biology. The bioinformatics programs were designed to make sense of the mounds of data that biologists could not have worked through on their own.
Bioinformatics is not mentioned in Scripture. This is hardly surprising, given that computers as we know them today did not exist when the Bible was written. However, the techniques and applications of bioinformatics are well within the confines of what Scripture permits and, as such, can be used to the glory of God.
In seeking to understand the world from a biblical perspective, the Answers Research Journal (ARJ) will publish papers in bioinformatics methods and their applications. While considering both biblical and non-biblical lines of evidence, we aim to discover the best ways to deal with bioinformatics questions and applications. These professional, peer-reviewed papers make the case for the historicity of Genesis and the accuracy of Scripture from the very first verse in the field of bioinformatics.
