There is no rule for fixing t and p. It depends on the level of stringency you expect. Value of t depends on what is considered to be an active concentration; this need not be same for all genes. This is an RNAseq data; I don't understand what is the "median" signal you are talking about. For each sample a gene would have a normalized expression value which ...

You are on the right track, but you have to keep in mind there are multiple ways to have two dark and one child in a group of three. You have to add the probabilities of each unique outcome that results in two dark and one light child. So, the probability is (1/4) x (3/4) x (3/4) PLUS (3/4) x (1/4) x (3/4) PLUS (3/4) x (3/4) x (1/4)

I agree with March Ho in general: people are not rational about food. That said there are two fairly different kinds of GMO, with different implications on the fears to have about them. 1) GMO embedding genes from the same species These are not supposed to be any different from plants obtained using classical breeding techniques. The process in brief is ...

People are not always rational when it comes to what they eat, especially when the compounds that make up the food have long, arcane-sounding names. It is indeed possible to analyse the amino acid composition of a food substance. However, this has no bearing whatsoever on the safety of the food product. For example, the following are two truncated ...

The lac operon contains genes which are important for the metabolization of lactose as an energy source - normally glucose is used for this purpose. Usually the operon is tighly regulated and as long as there is another source of energy it is kept in an inhibited state. The presence of lactose removes the lac repressor from the lac operon and allows the ...
