comment Why is cold water more refreshing than warm water?
Hi and welcome to the site. First of all, we expect answers here to be backed by references. That said, this does not answer my question. I am asking why cold water feels more refreshing, what is the biological method through which this feeling is expressed.

comment How can I align more than 2 sequences locally?
More than you might think. The NCBI blast lets you set things like e-value, gap penalty, match/mismatch scores, low complexity filtering. That's more than enough for 99% of uses.

The various web-based BLAST tools are basically a GUI for BLAST.

comment How did bullying arise evolutionarily?
@AliceD please never ever suggest cross-posting. We try very hard to avoid duplicating questions on multiple SE sites. If a question can fit on both sites, it should be tweaked to ask for different aspects of the issue based on each site's scope, not repeated.

comment How to select genes before log2 ratio on a RNASeq gene expression matrix, based on signal median
@DevonRyan biostars is not part of the SE network. It is only cross-posting when posted on different Stack Exchange sites. We can hardly expect people not to poest anywhere else on the internet if they want to post here! We just want to avoid duplicating information across the SE network.
