    Synthetic Biology Inquiry - What?

    Along the OP's lines: 1) Does synthetic biology typically constitute and addition to the host cell's genome, i.e., when a string of synthetic DNA (or any DNA) is inserted, the host cell just acquires the sequence into its own? 2) If so, are there any methods to replace parts of the host's...

    Synthetic Biology Programs

    Does anyone know of any prominent schools that offer programs that focus mostly on genetic engineering and synthetic biology? I have reviewed biological engineering programs of a few schools and the curricula comprising their programs seem to lack focus with this respect. Perhaps, graduate...

    Universe from nothing ?

    Haha. Correction though: I have interest in nothing... no worries. Thanks for the source Mordred.

    Universe from nothing ?

    The bulk of this would be to expand my understanding of what a field actually is so please keep that in mind. I don't think the 'virtual particles from nothing' is a mainstream scientific theory but would like to discuss for the above reason. I have watched some videos of Lawrence Krauss...

    Aero employment looking hopeless

    I think the CV indicates a bachelor position; I dont think employers expect that specific a skill set directly out of college (after all I think most of what you'll learn is on the job...college more teaches how to be efficient at learning). I was not the best in structures but think I can hold...

    Gravitational Time Dilation and Twin Paradox ?'s

    ...and certainly unimportant for GPS design. By the way, is there a straightforward method for calculating GTD? Also, a geosynchronous satellite would be considered a coincident frame with the Earth so are there exclusively GTD effects acting upon them? I understand your sentiments.

    Aero employment looking hopeless

    Some people get in with connections. I have essentially none but it is worth the effort. To be honest, I probably am too lazy at this process and need to start picking up my feet before 2 years out of school passes and I am unhirable.

    Aero employment looking hopeless

    Good info. I actually think the objective statement and cover letters are useless but necessary (more like persuasive writing rather than credentials). I dont write many cover letters but perhaps I should try to do that more often. One thing to take into account with this resume is it is...

    Lorentz Contraction ?s and Implication

    cheques -> I had to look that up...shows how much we like to make our own English here. :rofl:

    Lorentz Contraction ?s and Implication

    Yes, I found your post helpful in explaining what LC and GTD infer for the muon but not really in a mechanistic sense which I wish to explain it although it seems to not be explainable in that manner. ghwellsjr: They are both in both frames but it's only one of them that is required to...

    Lorentz Contraction ?s and Implication

    Yes, I move at near light speed in the frame of a 'light particle'. I should ask him for the answers? [note to police: That is a joke of a joke!!] Im not that misconceived.....but perhaps. :smile:

    Gravitational Time Dilation and Twin Paradox ?'s

    Deflecting is not my intent. I should just shut it sometimes. As for the discrepency: It seemed that some had the impression that you can say 1) and not mean 2) when now it seems 1) = 2) ..... (until I read the next post). But other than that seeming to be an argument of semantics it is really...

    Gravitational Time Dilation and Twin Paradox ?'s

    It does not matter; the definition of a second is what's arbitrary. Now you need to convince yourself (which you seem to have done) and DaleSpam that 1) and 2) (minus the ether stuff) are equivalent. "detection" - The change of these mechanisms is precisely the detection of "mysterious...

    Aero employment looking hopeless

    Keywords: That is why my relevant coursework is a massive list. Big companies use programs to screen the initial batch of applications. You know, I have been on linkedIn and some others, monster, careerbuilder. I dont see to many job openings (propulsion) anyway on there. Although, maybe...
