C, indubitably. the f bomb here is replacing God, Christ, Pete, pity, etc in any of the well-estbalished non-sweary 'for *'s sake's.

Of interest only to musta, but Tony Monaco's story about the evolution of language in response to dominant FOXP2 mutant alleles has been rocking on its heels for a while, and at first glance takes a knockout punch here. (I'd skip the results and go to the discussion after the intro musta, heavy genomics and functional genetics).

At second glance though, the kid is still moving on the canvas...

Cheers.
Supports the growing feeling that FOXP2 is an enhancer rather than the single determiner.
Still, the fact is that damage to FOXP2 seriously damages language processing with no effect on any other cognitive function, as far as we can see, which was the research that kicked the debate off in the first place.
But this research shows that the sweep is significantly older than previously thought.
So, FOXP2 is the Enforcer, not the Mob Boss.
Especially interesting was the "bottleneck" stuff.

Once again, thanks a lot.

The subtle effects on expression of nearby - and sometimes far away - genes is a space where we're still working out the logic. So the gene might be the mob boss after all, just more interestingly (subtly) regulated in its effects.
