Re:

Cat: Your theory on God is a misconception. God and evolution do not mix, and God did not create the earth or any part of the universe to let it evolve. He created it all. Period. Do you have direct evidence that "God did not create the earth or any part of the universe to let it evolve. He cr...

Let's take the case of something spicy. There are two mechanisms that have evolved: one is the fact that the food being eaten has evolved the production of capsaicin in order to prevent herbivory. The second one is the body evolving the spicy receptor in order to differentiate between "good to ...

Re: hybridization

I think you meant to ask in a chemistry forum. But no, it cannot be applied to ionic compounds since the orbitals do not have to hybdridize, they simply form ions.

Re: Quantitative test for starch

Hydrolyze the starch enzymatically (eg. by addition od amylase), then quantify glucose. For example: m I don't think that would work very well because that would measure the total amount of glucose monomers. If one starch chain is longer than the other, it will have a higher reading even though it ...

1. Bacterial polymerase

2. Yes

3. Gene cloning can be used for other studies, such as studying gene expression, and making genomic libraries, which PCR cannot be used for.
