Richards; no star rating given for indies. SciFi thriller Kira Miller is a brilliant genetic engineer who discovers how to temporarily achieve savant-like capabilities in all areas of thought and creativity.

But what if this transcendent level douglas richards wired intelligence brings with it a ruthless megalomania?

David Desh left the special forces after his team was brutally butchered in Iran. Now he has been reactivated for one last mission: A douglas richards wired that is certain douglas richards wired have a dramatic impact on the future course of human history.

And then, the flimsy science is used to create convenient leaps that magically fill the plot holes that avoid, well. If you want to read it, I won't ruin it for you.

The writer misspells "gel caps" throughout the entire thing. They use evolutionary psychology as real science. Richards has a M. A in Molecular Biology so he is very familiar with gene therapy and the possibility of being able to enhance human intelligence.


However, I am sure he also knows that just simply giving a pill to temporarily change our cognitive abilities is out of the question. Gene therapy for human intelligence would have to be done during embryonic development in order to be successful and the most likely outcome would be that the process douglas richards wired be permanent.

Secondarily, the development of the human brain is quite complex requiring numerous genes being turned on and off at the right time and the present day technology is not even close to being able to perform such complicated gene therapy. Additionally, we are douglas richards wired in the infancy stage in understanding how douglas richards wired brains work and far from understanding which genes would be necessary to change in order for the gene therapy to be successful.

So at this time, enhancement of human intelligence through gene therapy is really just science fiction. Douglas richards wired known as Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome is a genetic disorder douglas richards wired results in premature aging in young children.

Children with this disease will usually die in their teens usually from cardiovascular disorders or kidney failure. A mutation in the gene known as LMNA is known to be the cause of progeria and it appears that the mutation occurs during embryonic development and is not inherited.

The nuclear rim is part of a cellular structure that is known as the nuclear pore complex which allows large molecules to move to and from the inside of the nucleus to the cytoplasm of the cell.

Attachment of prelamin A to the nuclear rim is meant to be temporary as the farnesyl group will be cleaved and prelamin A now becomes lamin A which then becomes part of a matrix known as the nuclear douglas richards wired which provides structure as well as regulatory support for the nucleus.

In progeria, the mutated protein will not douglas richards wired the farnesyl group to be cleaved and prelamin A will stay attached to the nuclear rim. This will result in distortion in the nucleus along with problems in nuclear regulatory processes which in turn leads to considerable disruption in cellular activity.

Wired is a fantastic futuristic and high tech game of cat and mouse - a well written thriller that will douglas richards wired you at the very edge of your seat with your heart racing faster than Usain Bolt being chased by a bear, recommended.
