On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Research Director Jay Richards interviews protein scientist Doug Axe on his critical review paper published in the new journal, BIO-Complexity.

Dr. Axe’s new paper rigorously assesses the Darwinian mechanism to create new protein folds and is the featured article at BIO-Complexity, a new, open-access journal embracing the scientific controversy over origins and intelligent design.

Douglas Axe is the Maxwell Professor of Molecular Biology at Biola University, the founding Director of Biologic Institute, the founding Editor of BIO-Complexity, and the author of Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is Designed. After completing his PhD at Caltech, he held postdoctoral and research scientist positions at the University of Cambridge and the Cambridge Medical Research Council Centre. His research, which examines the functional and structural constraints on the evolution of proteins and protein systems, has been featured in many scientific journals, including the Journal of Molecular Biology, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, BIO-Complexity, and Nature, and in such books as Signature in the Cell and Darwin’s Doubt by Stephen Meyer and Life’s Solution by Simon Conway Morris.
