 Are genetic mutations random? Israeli scientists challenge neo-Darwinists

Scientists from the University of Haifa have challenged neo-Darwinists who claim that human genetic mutations are random.

The results say so new study.

Researchers led by Haifa University professor Adi Livnat have been able to prove that the rate of formation of the human hemoglobin S (HbS) mutation that protects against malaria is higher in people from Africa than in Europeans.

That is, the mutation is not random, but predominantly exists among the population of Africa, where it is more needed.

“We assume that evolution is influenced by two factors: external information , which is natural selection, and internal, which accumulates in the genome for over generations and affects the occurrence of mutations”, — noted Livnat.
