Lysenko perhaps, but more so Lamarck. Not just this book. Lots and lots of
recent research.

Can knowledge acquired during a lifetime be passed on to future
generations? Using innovative technologies such as CRISPR-Cas9,
optogenetics, and small RNA-sequencing analysis, scientists are closer to

University published a landmark study in Cell that shows how cells in the
nervous system pass on information to future generations in worms.

Based on this, Lamarck's giraffe didn't even have to stretch its neck, it
just had to think about doing that, for that information to be passed on.
