I'm sorry in case this is not the right newsgroup for
my question, but it seems to be quite close.
Some days ago I heared from TV that scientists
detected a certain form of hereditary information
that is not really based on nucleotides, but
any kind of a FIELD or something like that. Un-
fortunately I did not understand the word for
this "novelty" and as this was no boulevard-TV
program I should believe that there was
something with it.
Does anyone know sth about this? Is there any
known medium on a genetic or similar basis
which is not involved with genes as is?
Thanks in advance for your reply
