My name is Remi Matthey-Doret and I am a PhD Candidate at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Department of Zoology in the lab of Mike Whitlock. I am a theoretician working in the fields of population genetics and conservation genetics.

Please have a look to my website for more information.

You should ask your question on Skeptics.SE.

comment Can viruses that normally infect eukaryotic cells also infect bacteria?
Some viruses even infect other viruses! There are still very few examples and in addition to that those examples involve host species that are on the boundary of the definition of what is a virus. You may want to have a look to mamavirus and its parasite: sputnik. Also one may want to have a look to Marseillevirus (named after the University of Marseille), Lausannevirus (named after the University of Lausanne) and mimivirus.

comment Is there any evidence that soft tissue can be preserved for 65m+ years and if not what hypotheses exist to explain it?
your point is unclear. 1) There are two questions, one in the title, one in the text. 2) I don't understand what you mean by "survival of soft tissue". It seems that you are interested in the the sequencing of DNA of extinct species. You should try to improve your question because it will likely get closed otherwise. Good luck!

comment Can genes change as we age?
Thks, I removed the Telomere part. It's been a long I was waiting for someone coming with a reference on the subject. I felt that a part of my epigenetics paragraph was not relevant to the question so I removed it. I didn't get where was my contradiction so let me know if you still see this contradiction (you can copy-past the sentences that contradict). What I wrote was in relation to the hypothetical parental conflict origin of genomic imprinting.

Your link talk about G-matrix only. I don't know what a B-matrix is. Do you have a link that explain what is a B-matrix? Thks
