comment Where is the line between Anaerobic and Aerobic?
@JoeHobbit It might be that denitrifying bacteria have Krebs cycle, but I think that this still classifies them as anaerobs. I will do more research and will let you know.

comment DNA synthesis companies: cost per base, turn-around time, codon-optimization algorithms
These are good points. I would thing that the information about cost will be valid once you match it with the date on which the answers are posted. As for turn-around time, I came across a blog, where there was a plot of turn-around time vs length of DNA construct for several companies, so average values can be definitely taken into account. But mostly, I really would love to know about their codon-optimization algorithms but perhaps you are right and they are proprietary. Hopefully, the main ideas are not.

comment How are the gene sequences of individual sperm and egg cells “randomized”?
are you familiar with concepts like haploid, homozygos, alleles, chrossing over? I am trying to figure out how high scientific level my answer should be.

Your link is not working. Also, it would be nice if you give a short 'informal' description of it yourself.

comment What is the criticality of the ribosome binding site relative to the start codon in prokaryotic translation?
Yeah, we will see where this site is going...I am also trying the RBS calculator :-)It would be nice if we chat more. Would you write me on gvandova@stanford.edu?

comment Where is the line between Anaerobic and Aerobic?
@jp89 All energy produced in the Krebs cycles comes from the electron transport chain, i. e. energy cannot be produced without oxygen.

I still don't think that denitrifying bacteria will utilize Krebs cycle. Why would they do it anyways if no energy whatsoever comes from it?

I edited your question to make it more clear. You mean the genetic information, the sequencing of the genome, right?
