Breaking: Ketchum Bigfoot DNA Paper Previewed in DeNovo Scientific Journal, Embargoed Til 2/13 (Updated #3: full text available again)


Here it is folks. The Holy Grail of Bigfoot research right before your eyes. We're just going to leave it up to you to decipher what could possibly turn the scientific world upside down. Skeptics, go thaw some crow right now, because this is going to blow your mind.

Apparently, there's a glitch on www.denovojournal.com that's allowing us to access Dr. Melba Ketchum's Bigfoot DNA manuscript (Update: Preview only). Don't try to access with your desktop computer, because the glitch only works on mobile phone. Ketchum's paper will be published in Denovo Scientific Journal and the press embargo is being left tomorrow, February 13, 2013.


THREE BIGFOOT GENOMES SEQUENCED IN 5-YEAR DNA STUDY

New Research Paper Published Friday Shows Homo Sapiens/Unknown Hominin Hybrid Species Extant in North America
DALLAS, February 10th

A team of scientists will publish their five-year long study of DNA samples from a novel hominin species, commonly known as “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch,” on Friday February 15th, 2013. The results suggest that the legendary Sasquatch is extant in North America and is a human relative that arose approximately 13,000 years ago as a hybrid cross of modern Homo sapiens with an novel primate species.

The study, “Novel North American Hominins, Next Generation Sequencing of Three Whole Genomes and Associated Studies,” was conducted by a team of experts in genetics, forensics, imaging and pathology. The team, led by Dr. Melba Ketchum of DNA Diagnostics in Nacogdoches, TX, included Dr. Pat Wojtkiecicz, Director of the North Louisiana Criminalistics Laboratory; Ms. Aliece Watts of Integrated Forensic Laboratories in Euless, TX; Mr. David Spence, Trace Evidence Supervisor at Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences; Dr. Andreas K. Holzenburg, Director of the Microscopy & Imaging Center at Texas A&M University; Dr. Douglas G. Toler of Huguley Pathology Consultants in Fort Worth, TX; Dr. Thomas M. Prychitko of Wayne State University in Michigan; Dr. Fan Zhang of the University of North Texas Health Science Center; and Sarah Bollinger, Ray Shoulders, and Ryan Smith of DNA Diagnostics.

In total, 110 specimens of purported Sasquatch hair, blood, skin, and other tissue types were analyzed for the study. Samples were submitted by individuals and groups at 34 different hominin research sites in 14 U.S. states and two Canadian provinces. Ketchum’s team sequenced 20 whole and 10 partial mitochondrial genomes, as well as 3 whole nuclear genomes, from the samples.

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) comes from mitochondria, energy-producing organelles in the cellular cytoplasm, and is passed down on the maternal lineage across generations. Nuclear DNA (nuDNA) is the genetic information contained in the cell nucleus and is the equal combination of DNA from the parents of an individual.

Initially a skeptic, Ketchum implemented strict protocols to ensure the scientific integrity of the study. DNA samples from submitters and scientists working with study specimens were obtained for use as controls. DNA was extracted from samples using forensic procedures to prevent contamination. Forensics experts examined the morphology of the submitted hair samples against known human and animal samples before beginning DNA testing. “We soon discovered that certain hair samples--which we would later identify as purported Sasquatch samples--had unique morphology distinguishing them from typical human and animal samples,” says Ketchum. “Those hair samples that could not be identified as known animal or human were subsequently screened using DNA testing, beginning with sequencing of mitochondrial DNA followed by sequencing nuclear DNA to determine where these individuals fit in the ‘tree of life.'”

After extensive forensic controls to prevent contamination, mtDNA testing of the Sasquatch samples yielded fully modern human profiles. Sixteen haplotypes indicating 100% homology with modern human mtDNA sequences were observed from 20 completed whole and 10 partial mitochondrial genomes. The human mtDNA results are consistent with prior, unrelated mtDNA tests of purported Sasquatch samples from other laboratories.

Next-generation whole genome sequencing with the HiSeq 2000 platform by Illumina was performed at the University of Texas, Southwestern on one tissue sample, a saliva sample and one blood sample to produce 3 whole genomes. In contrast to the mtDNA which was unambiguously modern human, the Sasquatch nuDNA results were a mosaic of novel primate and human sequence.

“While the three Sasquatch nuclear genomes aligned well with one another and showed significant homology to human chromosome 11 which is highly conserved in primates, the Sasquatch genomes were novel and fell well outside of known ancient hominin as well as ape sequences,” explains Ketchum. “Because some of the mtDNA haplogroups found in our Sasquatch samples originated as late as 13,000 years ago, we are hypothesizing that the Sasquatch are human hybrids, the result of males of an unknown hominin species crossing with female Homo sapiens.”

Hominins are members of the taxonomic grouping Hominini, which includes all members of the genus Homo.

    6. I understand that. My point is why are Doctors from low tier universities performing pier reviews on a study that could shape the way we look at the evolution of apes and humans? This could be the missing link! If this study had an ounce of truth you would have studies at major anthropology and medical universities like, Ucla, Harvard, Northwestern, and Stanford.

    7. Wonder if they turned her down so they could save face. We know very few people in the science world want bigfoot associated with them.

    8. Unless its true and can be verified with scientific evidence. If you had absolute proof of a great ape in North America that is in between a chimp and humans you would be the discoverer of the missing link of evolurion. Any scientist would want a part in that.

      My opinion is she was shot down by a few more respected scientist and then lowered her standards.

      According to those in the genetic research community, she never actually submitted anything to any body of note. Nobody in the word of genetic research ever saw one word of any Ketchum paper.

    4. Since there IS mainstream resistance to this subject, I think you are being too hasty, madam.

      Self-publication may be the only avenue, given the subject.

      You may be asking too much.

      I suggest you read the paper before dismissal.

      And I suggest you refrain from kneejerk dismissal once you read it.

      You have to face that there is mainstream resistance to this subject which could interefere with mainstream publication. You have to face and deal with that, and deal with independent publication.

      The beauty of this is that if the peers said No, we still get to see the paper. There is absolutely no sense in siding with the mainstream academic journals if they are already biased against this subject. That is a waster, a waste of time.

      Why would you use, as your measuring stick, the journals which are dead set against this idea from the get go? Why why why? You will never get the basic truth that way.

      But that doesn't make Ketchum any less of a tattooed carnival barker. The method of this "publication" proves it again. It fits her usual slimy M.O.
      If Bigfoot DOES exist I assure you it won't be proved by Melba Ketchum. So relax! The Sykes study is on the way, and you can bet he won't be publishing in a fly-by-night journal or selling tee shirts.

I have to wonder just how involved these other people listed with this study really were and if they had full knowledge of their part in it. I wouldn't know what the hell I was reading anyway if I did read it so I will wait for those who are trained and knowledgeable in this area to judge it.

    1. The word is "skeptards".

      That's S-K-E-P-T-A-R-D-S

      This word has been coined to describe the emotionally unstable lunatics who strut their pathetic asses around bragging about being rational, logical, scientific, and the like.

      People who profess such qualities are the most emotionally violent and virulent of all personalities.

      Therefore, they are skeptards.

      These are the people who say you live in your mom's basement, that you receive violent homosexual sex, and they are those who claim they "made love" with your mother.

      Nice people?

      That's why we call them skeptards.

      Everyone, please, these are the skeptards.

      Idiots with severe PGF-itis who refuse to look at the evidence in the PGF.

      Drooling, jaw-dragging, incoherent, developmentally challenged, emotionally stunted, fools.

      These are the skeptards.

    2. Yep. No matter how convincing this paper is to people who understand all the DNA stuff, most people will just shrug. A body needs to come forward... or some VERY clear and unmistakably real video. Personally, I don't think researchers are up to the task of producing it. They just aren't thinking with the right combination of cleverness and extreme paranoia to allow such proof to come into the public eye. Either the sasquatches will evade them, or the government will intervene. The chances of proof coming forward are almost nil, even though these creatures do exist...

  48. Suppressing this work is all about "the economy stupid." I never imagined Bigfoot to be anything but an Anerican gorilla-esque creature, if what she is saying turns out to be true, the outcry to protect more federal lands will be huge and the resource depleters will have a total meltdown. This could cause real chaos on Wall Street. Of course, I am not saying she is correct in the humanoid aspect, but even that the animal exists scientifically, as an animal sacred to so many native peoples, the call to protect land from development and destruction could be significant.

  49. I am ashamed of how this entire project has been handled. So many hard-working people depended on Dr. K ---- the people who collected the samples, the people who have supported her and the people who worked with her on the study itself. To see it end up as an apparent self-publish with so-called journals with no history is an affront to the legitimacy of the peer review process. I wanted to see her succeed. Instead, she has made this project into a laughingstock. It is up to Sykes now. If his findings support hers, then perhaps something can be salvaged from her study.

    1. Yes, only thing on the thread so far that was worth reading.
      There's nothing wrong with self publishing per se at this point, if that is the only way to have this study made public. At least it can be read by people who understand the intricacies of DNA coding, which I am pretty sure excludes all here. But the websites and names seem deliberately deceptive. Ralphie boy said this would all come to tears months ago. Did you listen to him? if you want to find out why all paranormal research like this seems doomed to continual hoaxing and confusion, read The Trickster and the Paranormal, by George Hanson. It will explain all.

    Now we just wait on her to release the footage she has acquired from Erickson and its full circle like I thought.

    2. Here is your guide book to the world of skeptards and skeptardia:

      The entire repertoire of the skeptard is thus:

      1. You are retarded.

      2. You live with your mother.

      3. I had sex with your mother.

      4. You have homosexual sex.

      5. Therefore (for some reason) there is no bigfoot.

      Isn't there anything else on the menu, skeptards?

      For all the skeptards' ostentatious ass-strutting, they produce no science, and waste endless hours trying to prove a negative. I would like them to remove their asses.

      This is playground-level stuff.

      They show time and time again this is all they have, which is nothing.

      If your only argument involves the arguee's mother, domestic arrangement, the arguee's sexual preferences, and your sexual preferences, why don't you take it elsewhere? Remove your asses.

      Skeptards preen and prance, bragging about their logic and science. Yet their argument is that because the arguee is gay/lives with mom/arguer has sex with arguee's mom/arguee is retarded, therefore there is no bigfoot, is illogical. It doesn't follow a rational progression. It's irrational.

      You'll notice in life that the people who always pontificate about what is rational and irrational, are the most irrational and emotionally unstable of all. They are driven by what they hate about themselves: being irrational, emotional, illogical. The self-loathing of these qualities powers their constant speech-making about what is rational, logical, scientific. It's a drive.

      It's simple hypocrisy. It's the irrational, the illogical, naming others irrational, illogical.

      It's a bit weird too that some of these male gay sex cracks come from a female skeptard. Why the preoccupation or obsession?

  55. I appreciate it. I really do know more now than I did 15 mins ago. And it's now more obvious than ever Melba "Wannabe" Ketchum was simply taking advantage of the 'it's magic' perception of DNA science to confuse and mis-characterize the unglamorous realities of such in her lame attempt at becoming 'rich and famous'. On the con-man's list of favorite cons: Baffle 'em with a subject high enough in sophistication (whether viable or not) that they eagerly allow the con-man himself to decipher it for them.

  58. This is an extraordinarily bad turn of events. This journal actually doesn't exist -- it's a website created just a week ago, according to records. If this is all she could do, create her own "journal" and post her paper, then this says volumes about the quality of the work.

    I hope the true believers really appreciate this: I'm an academic but I'm not gloating about this; I think it's tragic, actually, that someone would play with people's hopes this way for several years. But please understand, it's not blind skepticism to point out the obvious. This isn't what was hoped for, not at all.

I give credit for Melba for assembling a highly qualified team, and for giving a platform for future studies to go to. Sasquatch is ground breaking and deserves its own journal! I would not give a sniff to any "white collared" journal, that think they are so above "sasquatch", any chance to make any money off of this. The science will speak for itself! If it doesn't, we will all find out soon enough. Good for her, and her team of scientists, doctors and universities that have put their name behind this!

    1. I respect what you're saying, but please understand: the journals -- the real ones -- are precisely where the science speaks for itself. Science is not conducted in a vacuum; it requires the scrutiny of your peers. That is the essence of peer review. The Sykes study clearly shows that conspiracy theories are unfounded: "science" (as if it's monolithic!) will gladly look at BF evidence ... but whether you're investigating a flower or a 7-foot hominid, you have to respect good scientific procedure. Clearly, Ketchum and her group failed in some significant way in this respect.
