New abnormalities due to transgenic technology
It has been observed in Arabidopsis thaliana a work by Elena Alvarez-Buylla, that the insertion of transgenes in different places of genome results in very different monstrous plants, far from what is desired from the other spices gene.
I think that this, artificial phenomenon should be included in this article, but I am not qualified to write about it, I just know the phenomenon and is important to include it here.
On other hand, this kind of phenomenon, a similar one, is also known to happen as an evolution mechanism. Does anyone know the detail, does it only came by symbiosis in the way described by Lynn Margulis?
Proposed addition of new tables
I drafted some tables that might be nice for the article. Requesting criticism and fact-checking.
|5||Cri du chat
5q deletion syndrome
|8||Warkany syndrome 2|
|18||18q deletion syndrome||Edwards syndrome|
|22||DiGeorge syndrome||Cat eye syndrome

I am new in this but i like this table, maybe you could add more details to it, like chance of accuring , or in what way chromosome is modified. (if that makes sense.) like this: [chromosome number][syndrom name][modification_type][chance] ...— Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:06, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
