The Genetic Literacy Project is an organization that describes itself as dedicated to promoting public awareness and discussion of genetics, biotechnology, evolution and science literacy. It was founded by Jon Entine, a science writer and consultant who serves as its executive director.
Evolution? What, besides disease, evolves in the context of genetic literacy?
The cryo-electron microscope, or cryo-EM, is allowing scientists to image structures as small as viruses and ribosomes — the part of the cell where proteins are synthesized.

A protein complex called an intasome is responsible for irreversibly inserting viral DNA into human DNA, a vital step in allowing retroviruses to cause disease.
Stress-linked reactivation of retroviruses causes all diseases.
What’s an intasome?
It takes only a few minutes to learn that it represents the light-activated assembly of the microRNA-RNA-peptide nanocomplex, which biophysically constrains viral latency and all pathology. See also: microRNAome
Jon Entine and his followers continue to ignore the facts about the microRNAome.
Kevin Folta is an example of human idiocy, placed into the context of The Genetic Literacy Project‘s source of salvation.
This list of experts included geneticist and former head of the university’s horticultural department Kevin Folta, a vocal proponent of the benefits of genetically modified crops and well known for his science outreach efforts, including the Talking Biotech podcast featured on the GLP. Folta has almost 22,000 followers on Twitter and is well-respected among his science colleagues.
In his comments (a reply to me), this well-respected moron claimed that:
…viruses don’t “degrade messenger RNA” — they don’t have the hardware to do that. microRNA is produced through a well described mechanism that I’d think you’d know if you were making such claims. Let’s start there, then explain how all installed transgenes affect that mechanism. Citations required.
I responded with links to the requested citations:
