to be fair, the flood aren't as versatile a lifeform as humans, being parasites. At least we have independence in reproduction.

i do disagree with the idea of silicon based life, but if it's in the halo novels, it's halo canon.

tapeworms can also infect a variety of lifeforms, but that doesn't make them versatile, only a parasite

Ok, it's not that likely that any other species in the universe (flood, covenant, etc) that is not from Earth has DNA. It's as much chance as those specific molecules polymerized to form the code that makes up our genome as anything else. Any other of the variable biological molecular polymers (not to mention many others) could have also somehow been the precursor to life.

Granted, current evidence suggests that RNA makes the best genetic information (even moreso than DNA) because, single stranded, it is unstable and tends to catalyze the polymerization of other molecules, including itself (self-replication = potential for 'life' ). I won't go into too much detail, being as how this is what my lab studies and I probably would bore everyone to sleep if I did, but suffice to say that it is probably a greater possibility that DNA happened to be genetic information than most others. Anyway, that aside, DNA as the genetic code is still RANDOM CHANCE even if slightly more likely than some alternatives.

If you want to go off the deep-end and say that the Forerunners had DNA and therefore all species they created would have the same universal Central Dogma (DNA -> RNA -> Protein) then fine. But I still think it's doubtful that the Flood have DNA because, as server four just elucidated, the Flood are extra-galactic in origin. Think about it, the odds that a species from an entirely different galaxy would have the same central dogma are... astronomically small (pardon the pun).

I think in the context of the DNA we've been presented, it refers to CentiMorgan analysis... That is a study two gene's likelihood to recombine at meiosis when they were initially linked. It can roughly be equated to distance along the chromosome, with a higher cM being a larger distance between two genes (this number in base pairs is vastly different among species though. So a cM does not = a certain # of base pairs).

It could be significant if this DNA strand were from the eukaryotic nuclear chromosome, but as it appears to be an example of mtDNA, it would be and irrelevant analysis.

Before I ask, since this is me being... Totally ridiculously... "Could this POSSIBLY be related", type of thing... I'm fresh out of High School. So I barely understand much of what's being said, only by researching as I go along...

But, since a lot of what has been said has included the "Chinese Alligator" thing...

And someone else mentioned applying things to the Halo 'verse...

Is there any chance a Chinese Alligator may show any sort of brain activity that mirrors the effects of "Boren's Syndrome"?... That's stupid, I know... But I figured i'd atleast attempt to bring it up. Cause maybe there could be something about neutralization of the Flood that doesn't require mass genocide?

This is all theory, of course...
