I am impressed by the heavy complexity and information overload by a recent post on Bioinformatics on Uncommon Descent, based on a simple question:
I also have a couple of very concrete and probably very simple questions regarding the bioinformatics algorithms and software you are using. Could you write a post on the bioinformatics basics, the metrics and a little more detail about how you produced those graphs, for the benefit of the general audience?
Of course, I am almost as ignorant after reading the post as before, but at least I can get a general idea of just how much I don’t know, and how deep my ignorance goes. I just don’t have the time to get a solid grip on the science, but being able to ask the right questions helps a lot!
Traveller related, it makes me pleased that the Solomani snatched the hat of “genetic engineers” before the other Six Races could get it. Shaping, building, understanding, and strengthening the stuff of life itself is a wondrous ability!
