Protein Interaction Map

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Biochemists have developed a powerful new tool for revealing biomolecular design. For the first time a research team has produced a comprehensive protein interaction map for the genome of an organism. For a species of fruit fly they mapped 4,679 proteins and 4,780 interactions. They found high levels of organization on two levels: short-range organization involving multiprotein complexes and global organization involving intercomplex connections. Such high level organization and coordination of complex protein functions speaks of supernatural design. Future comprehensive protein interaction maps should provide even more evidence of divine design.

In 1999, I left my position in R&D at a Fortune 500 company to join Reasons to Believe because I felt the most important thing I could do as a scientist is to communicate to skeptics and believers alike the powerful scientific evidence—evidence that is being uncovered day after day—for God’s existence and the reliability of Scripture.
