My wish is, in the not very distant future, to study Mr Frank Zappa's genes. It might be of great usefulness to the human species ( and I am not a eugenist or nazi or anything, ok?).<br><br>To understand what are the genetic baisis of a "Phenotype" (The Actual living you) suchs as FZ's is definetively good to study genes involved in great cognitive capacity of a person such as Franks Zappa.<br><br>Of course any person is a great deal determined or influenced by his/her environemental/developmental conditions. Things I am talking about here are not a straight line! Don't wanna discuss replies here about Brave new worlds/nazzi stuff here... <br><br>But what is important is to find what are the genetics conditions (polymorphisms) that predisposes someone to such a prolific ouvre and with such degree of deepness/perfection.<br><br>Frank Zappa was a above average capacity human being, in my humble opinion of such uncertain and controverse matters such as genetic determinism.<br><br>BUT  I am Mr Green Genes, so lets talk about it:<br><br>Now signing as MSc Green Genes, future Dr Green Genes<br><br>ARF

[font=courier]...the huge advances in genetic research have produced quite a few genes in need of naming.... [/font]<br><br><br>there is actually a gene named after frank.... [font=arial black]ZapA (Proteus mirabilis)[sub]Image[/sub][/font]<br><br>[font=courier]ZapA, Bob told me, is "part of a family of genes called ZapA thru ZapE (kind of hard to push Gails, Dweezils, Moonunits and the like past the scientific peer review)" [/font]<br><br>[font=courier]"We especially thank the late Frank Zappa for inspiration and assistance with genetic nomenclature."[/font]<br><br>[font=cg times]I should add that it also says, in the Discussion section of the paper that "ZapA mutants . . . are presently being constructed" - a hitherto undisclosed secret project which can only bring delight at the prospect of Zappa Mutants multiplying rapidly and swamping the control rooms of the world's recording studios. Thanks, Bob!  [/font]<br><br>[center]Image[/center]
