A team of geneticists uncovered new evidence for design when they discovered that gene interactions are much more complex than anyone had previously realized. They mapped a genetic interaction network in yeast that consisted of about one thousand genes and four thousand interactions. When they tested 143 mutant genes the team found an average of 34 interactions per gene and only half of the interactions were in local biochemical pathways. This amazing level of complexity points to a supernatural Designer.
