You just have to know where to look cause it sure isn't gonna be accepted in Nature or Science. -Jelanen

From m "Student" (real name: W. S. Gossett [1876-1937]) developed statistical methods to solve problems stemming from his employment in a brewery. Student's t-test deals with the problems associated with inference based on "small" samples: the calculated mean (Xavg) and standard deviation (sdev) may...

If in practice you can separate 2 atoms that differ only by 2 amu then you can separate those two DNA strands. Would it be practical? Nope. Are there easier methods? Yes.

Also, having RNA as the mode of information transportation allows for mutations to have a quicker effect (or detriment) so that the virus can avoid those pesky antivirals.

Yes, you CAN separate those DNA strands via centrifugation with the following qualifiers, you need a solution in which allows a large separation and you need alot of time and G. 20bp is alot on a molecular level, but not alot on a human level, so it will take alot of time and alot of high speed spin...

Not only that, stratification of substances in the oocyte (egg) sets up future divisions and what those daughter cells turn into down the road (differentiation). Amazing things those oocytes.

What type of cell are we talking about? What kind of RNA? If we're talking eukaryotic cells, then the answer might simply be that the RNA in the Northern blot was mRNA and had introns excised, therefore making it different in sequence than the DNA from whence it was transcribed. Though that explanat...

I'm not sure where you would find this information (my texts are still packed, yeah, I'm lazy) but the entire cell has three dimensional physical addresses laid out and demarcated with the cytoskeleton. I'm not up on the current research in the field (bad Jelanen), but that was what I had heard. I'm...

Yeah, microwave ovens don't irradiate the whole compartment evenly. Somewhere I read that most have "hot" zones about the shape of a mushroom centered in the middle of the oven. That prolly varies from oven to oven though. Thats why ovens have rotating platters and you have to stop and stir to get e...
