    Thanks Andy for the advice. That sounds like a very smart way of staying up to date with papers.

    What Journals are wisest to follow?

    Ok so just reviews in the beginning. Just a side question. Do people really always read the whole articles? As in everything from a-z (protocols, methods, data and conclusions) or do most readers focus on data and conclusions. I am assuming it depends on who is actually reading the paper...

    What Journals are wisest to follow?

    Hello everyone, I wanted some advice as to what journals I could follow based on my interests. I am currently studying Biotechnology (my interest), but I am interested as well in cell signalling (particularly as it applies to activation/deactivation of genes), medicine (therapeutics...

    Evolution? Good Discussion here

    That is ok no problem at all, I understand the dreaded late night work, :smile:. @Bobze, Sorry about screwing up the grammar and vocabulary when speaking about Evolution, I'll try to improve upon that. But with respect to your other points, you are right I should be more specific about...

    Evolution? Good Discussion here

    Of course I wouldn't say that, who in their right mind would? It is a mutation that is causing a problem for that specimen not anything else. Obviously though you have brought up a good example of this with anemia, that is when it would be useful. I do not think my understanding of how...

    Evolution? Good Discussion here

    Well why don't I ask you Mr. Dave what a useful trait. According to the Theory, a useful trait would be anything that helps the species or individual at least, become adapted to his new environment. That is all it is. As far as I know, most studies that have placed any form of stress or say...

    Evolution? Good Discussion here

    Well since I do prefer genetics myself mostly, I can only speak primarily about that area itself as related to evolution. One such question is how variation truly arises. I know the common mainstream answer: mutation. And although I agree with that answer to a certain aspect, as in primarily...

    Evolution? Good Discussion here

    Please do not get me wrong. I firstly did not try in any way to stir up a debate, or a pot? seriously? :). The only thing I was trying to say is I believe what the OP will talk about is clearly those areas in which we lack understanding. Obviously though, this is something we have to accept, and...

    Evolution? Good Discussion here

    Well as far as my common sense tells me, that is what the OP had in mind. By the way, I have done some of my own research and discussed certain topics on this such issue with Professors, and I have to honestly say there are a lot of problems with this Theory still. PF should not hide this fact...

    DNA Topology

    Thanks for the link. So really with respect to DNA, the math is not so complicated as it seems from the paper? Correct? DNA topology is more interested in the qualitative features of the molecule? As compared to quantitative.

    DNA Topology

    I was wondering if topology has ever been utilized on the structure of DNA and how that applies to its functions? I am assuming that it has as this is one of the most obsessed over molecules in the 21st century. I am interested in this area of topology if it exists. Also I have no previous...

    Evolution? Good Discussion here

    Still if the man says he has references that are not religious then lets here him out. I think that is a very important part of science, because without open discussion I do not think any field of science will ever advance. In response to the OP, I wouldn't mind hearing your arguments.

    How much Academic Knowledge is used in industry?

    I read the article, and like you summarized he does mention that it would be hard; because the student wold not have the previous experience as to how to approach in depth studies. I guess this does connect back to my original post, where it seems that technical skills in how to research...

    How much Academic Knowledge is used in industry?

    Hello everyone, and happy holidays. I had a question that recently popped into my head as I am in my last three semesters of my undergraduate university. Some background, I am thinking of applying for a professional Masters degree (2 yrs long) before finding work in industry. But I was...

    Re-Learning Algebra

    Hi there, I guess I did not specify clearly what I was interested in (my apologies). I would like to know what usually is the beginner/intermediate level algebra taught in university. I know that they do not start from the basics, and that I already know very well. But I am wondering if there is...
