comment Question about Autosomal Recessive Alleles
I would also add "human error" to the list, a person changing the outcome, e.g. by contaminating the sample or a spelling error while transcribing the result. This might be surprisingly likely - somebody overly tired, or having a bad day.

comment How many people are required to maintain genetic diversity?
It's just mathematics. If you pick two outbred mice/rats etc. and mate them, the offspring is about 0,5-1% more inbred than their parents (meaning both their copies of any gene are a tiny bit more likely to be inherited from one ancestor mouse). If you have enough animals, this effect is smaller than the effect of other phenomena, such as genetic drift (compare with the assumptions behind Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium). I don't know the exact equasions behind those numbers, I just know, that this was calculated and such-and-such numbers are used.

comment Do spouses begin to share genes over time?
I get that this is a legit question, but you are so sexist in formulating it I hope you never write again.

comment Botulinum Toxin
Yes, I doubt that. I think there might be very old studies showing the principle - how it was discovered, or studies pinpointing the exact curve in order to formulate those recommendations that I quoted.
