comment When a Lysosome's bonding sites all get bonded to, what is the most resource and energy efficient way to handle the used Lysosome?
Enzymes are catalysts, i.e. by definition they don't get used up. More info on "cellular garbage disposal" can be found here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysosome

comment Comparing BLAST and the Smith-Waterman algorithm
BLAST uses a heuristic, but mainly to cut down the time spent looking for homologs, not to produce better alignment. So BLAST is not more accurate than S-W, but often times accurate enough.

comment Are there more descriptive ways of naming genes and gene interactions?
@AlexStone: there are pathways that can be given a nice name, e.g. genome.jp/kegg/pathway.html -- but even then there will be more functions to the pathway than what can be encapsulated in the name
