comment A good book for history of biology/biotechnology for lay people
@yamad Unfortunately, I haven't read any of the recommended books, so it would be nice if people upvoted because they did. I am also happy to change my accepted answer as soon as someone recommends something else. I also recommended a book which fits what I was looking for but I haven't read it as well.

comment A good book for history of biology/biotechnology for lay people
@yamad I accepted this answer because the content of this book was the closest to what I was initially looking for. But the votes to the other answers should give you an idea of how good or well known the other books are.

comment Intrinsically disordered proteins as potential drug targets
Thanks for your answer and the references. I will definitely look them up. I already read the Metallo, SJ paper, which is an excellent paper! What concerns me the most though, is that all IDPs can interact with multiple small molecules or other proteins, so they cannot be specifically targeted. That's why I am very interested whether specific interactions have been discovered.

comment Reverse transcription PCR optimization
@Alexander Galkin Yes, I believe the question is more about PCR rather than RT. You are probably right that RT-PCR tag is too specific. The PCR tag is good enough.

comment Reverse transcription PCR optimization
@Alexander Galkin Why did you remove the PCR tag? I think the question is really about RT PCR, and not RT in particular.
