500-Million-Year-Old 'Mistake' Led to Humans

10 posts in this topic

Triggering the evolution of humans and other animals.

THE GIST

  • A genetic process that went wrong 500 million years ago led to the evolution of humans and other vertebrates.
  • The event, which resulted in doublings of genes, also led to proteins responsible for many of today's diseases.
  • Studying these proteins could help researchers learn more about human evolution and the inner workings of diseases.

I'm not sure why people need to call certain mutations a mistake.

I'm not sure why people need to call certain mutations a mistake.

Most things with this mutation in this time probably died. So it ended badly...for most things.

Plus the fact it caused diseases also kinda warrants a mistake title? I'm not sure what scientifically qualifies.

Aren't most if not all mutations mistakes?

Was it really a mistake or genetic engineering by those pesky greys that keep abducting us.
