Dearest Cpt. Chalser,
I appreciate your enthusiasm. I hope that my previous statements of intent to be a working part of the project here have been proven at this point.
I understand that you were interested to know why I came up with the technique I did with the Team 3 Head staff. Because of that interest I will be publishing my own detailed addendum to Cpt. Durnist’s own. I have yet to complete it however so I will have to request your understanding in the interim.
Essentially it boils down to the reality of the Kul’Raigh population. They are extremely odd from an evolutionary perspective, to the point where our bio computing technology was almost solely based on their brain scans for the better part of the last decade. It was only recently that native scans gave us an idea of how to move forward.
I performed my first doctorate research project on _____ genetic topology and programming, and when I saw what Cpt. Durnist was doing, I understood what he had to do from there to get where he wanted. To be clear, I am not an expert geneticist, I am more proficient in logic and control flow than I am in biology, but the genetic set is and always has been a particularly good bio computing platform.
The way that the genome is coded is such that the _____ and _____ stages are duplicated only when the proper protein markers are attached to _____. Without these there is little that can be done to modify the DNA. Attaching Novian genetic material inline then, requires that we assign _____ to the _____ sequence to open it for programming. (A similiar setup is well documented in genetic research in the Federation, I can cite it in my write up. The setup we need to use must be different or we won’t be able to combine the new base pairs.)
Our technique won’t be as clean because we are not crafting the gene entirely from nothing and we have to fit alien genetic material into the gaps. But based on your program’s expertise with that sort of mapping I think you can handle figuring out where each of the Novian genes needs to be placed.
I did notice that we have a cohesion degradation in our bio computing nodes when we modify those however; it decreases redundancy common to the Kul’Raigh DNA. (An entirely different topic of course but related and interesting)
If that degradation manifests it will probably kill any cultures because cell apoptosis sets in rather dramatically when that degradation occurs. I never figured out the solution to it.
