Is the DNA that's on the center of all existence within the universe a "cosmic code" that hyperlinks Earth to heaven and guy to God?

The conclusions were not at once generally accepted, but they could not be disregarded and stand today as essentially correct. At last, cytology and genetics were brought into intimate relation, and results in each field began to have strong effects on the other. C HAPTER 6 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– L INKAGE With the work of Sutton, the relation of the chromosomes to segregation and to independent assortment became clear.
During these few years Flemming and Strasburger recognized chromosomes. Van Beneden showed that the daughter halves of the mitotic chromosomes pass to opposite poles at mitosis; that, in Ascaris, the fertilized egg receives an equal number of chromosomes from each parent; and that the meiotic divisions result in halving the number present in the fertilized egg. Here, then, was the first demonstration of the double na* Both Mendel and Correns also suffered from eye trouble brought on by excessive work with strong light.
His early work was on local floras, the microorganisms in water supplies, and the turgor of plant cells. In the latter field, he carried out a beautiful series of quantitative studies of the effects of the concentrations of various salts on plasmolysis. These results were of importance in the development (by Arrhenius and van’t Hoff) of the ionic theory of the osmotic properties of solutions of electrolytes. His Intracellular Pangenesis (1889) has been described in Chapter 3; his work on mutation will be discussed in Chapters 10 and 11.
