About hsrikm:
I hold a B.A. in the Natural Sciences from the Johns Hopkins University and a PhD in Biochemistry (CUNY 1986). My thesis work involved the measurement of deoxyuridine in the DNA various tissues of mice in order to determine if the spontaneous conversion of cytosine to uracil is a potential source of spontaneous mutation. I am interested in the concept of information in biological systems and nature, evolution, means of evolution, as a product of natural processes that are governed by the laws of nature. I am especially interested in the concept of DNA as a phenomenon unique in nature, unique to life alone and how (if?) this situation might be accomodated to exist within existing conceptual frameworks of nature and natural law.
I currently take courses in philosophy and anthropology at the California State University Los Angeles.
