comment How is eye color in humans inherited?
@aleadam Thanks for your answer, it really looks promising, but I was about to ask you the same thing as nico did: can you please expand it and make it more clear and easy to read and understand?

comment What is the prehistory of amino acids in cells?
Yeah, the assumption is that the earliest amino acids (ala ang gly) were encoded by triplet codons. Perhaps you can look at Trifonof's eariler literature to see whether he discusses this.

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.
