    yeah i really dont see it as a flaw. like was stated its an addition to. plus how long ago was Mendels research? most of what the article discusses would have been quite difficult to understand or explain or even prove in Mendels time. it just shows that the world is far more complicated than we think it is [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    If Mendel had studied watercress instead of peas, the results may have been so confounding that he may not have been able to develop his laws.

    You know, this is pure news sensationalism. Mendel's work isn't flawed from this finding. Evolution isn't flawed from this finding. They just found one plant which has a backup to certain functions. There are tons of redundancy and repairing built into DNA, ie some mutations can occur and not change the protein the DNA encodes for. The amount of interactions between proteins is staggering. This plant just has another gene or protein that helps recover from this one instance. I'm sure in the future you'll find a lot of plants/animals that have similiar genes that can be recovered from tampering.

    This is just media playing off of the evolution/no evolution debate.

    Oh just FYI that finding was published in today's issue of "Nature". They are now theoriezing and experimenting with other plants to see if other plants can do it. If so they will move on to animals and then eventually humans. If it works for some things this will help genetic engineering/cloning babies enormously. Think about it, no more genetic diseases. The only bad thing is some good traits may also be eliminated.
