Haha. Send an email to the administrator. If you haven't noticed already, there's also a typo under the title "Forum Help". Should be "This Biology Forum..." instead of "This Biolgy Forum...", unless if my dictionary requires further updating.

Uh...I was refering to when within each individual posted topic. I was in the library today where they have this 17" LCD, and I was scrolling down for quite a while until I found the most recent post. But then again, I think the page breaking problem had been fixed already.

You're welcome, Inu.

I read somewhere that methyl insufficiency and abnormal DNA methylation might play significant roles in the development of several pathologies including birth defects, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and neurological disorders. Why would that be the case?

In terms of dissolved substances, this phenomenon mo...

Probably should've read what Ice posted in the first place, Snake. He asked about the name of the job of one who studies creatures of the deep, and the anglerfish is just one example of a creature of the deep.

I've a friend who's Chinese, and I've been told that boiling the skin of oranges in a pot of water, and then drinking the "potion" (?) afterwards would help cure flus and the common cold. I've tried it a couple of times, and it actually helps a lot. So I'd think that other fruit skins when treated p...

Page breaks?

Some of these topics are getting millions of posts, I think that there should be page breaks and stuff. I mean, personally, I don't want to scroll forever just to get to the most recent post.

Off-track

Inu, there are biologists out there who believes in every single word of the Bible, and there are also priests who thinks that evolution might be true. There are different people with different interests in this world.

Well Snake, take the example of dogs today. People crossbreed different types of dogs to form a new, more desirable breed. So IMO, I'd think that hybrids could breed, but just more rare in the wild. Where else would you get a Chinese Hairless Crested Dog?
