comment What can cause a lump in the middle of the neck? (homework case study)
I've voted to close as personal medical/health. Even if it is not "personal" I feel that there is too little information to properly diagnose, and I'm afraid that answers to the question might be misunderstood or misused (as medical advice) by other persons visiting the site.

comment How to calculate the Jaccard index
Exactly how do you want to use it? In ecology, it is usually used to compare how similar communities of species are, but you are referring to only two compounds. What entities do you want to compare? As for coding it, you could probably find much useful information in the currently 345 StackOverflow questions on the Jaccard coefficient/index

comment Has a new functional structure ever been observed arising spontaneously?
What do you mean with "spontaneously" (without human influence? in a short period of time/instantaneously?)? The reason why I'm asking is that creationists often formulate questions in a similar way, from the perspective of doubting evolution as a whole (we haven't "seen" this/that happen), misunderstanding the evolutionary process (e.g. mutation -> new function) and their artifical boundary between macro and microevolution. I'm not saying that you believe in this, and I'm just asking for clarifications, since the current framing of your question might lead to misunderstandings.

comment What ways are there to determine how big genera are?
If you are you aiming to compare genera widely across families and orders, you should consider that taxonomic levels (such as genus) are used very differently between orders. This means that taxonomists are using quite different criteria to delimitate genera, so the differences you might observe would probably be caused by these different definitions/criteria as much as "actual" differences.

This is certainly a possibility, and I have updated my answer to explain why I feel that G. sylvaticum is a better fit.

@Yehosef You can just leave the question as it is. Since the question has an upvoted answer it cannot be deleted by you, and, as you say, the discussion can useful for later visitors.

comment Do both Carbamazepinum and Lamotriginum increase glutamate threshold?
@AliceD Well, I thought that the answer was useful and entirely appropriate, since this is essentially a yes/no let-me-google-that-for-you question (this answer is basically a google search of the title), and this OP is quite capable of reading the primary literature. In my mind, the question could just as well be closed as no effort/homework. I first meant to post a comment, but since the question might go unanswered I could just as well post a rudimentary answer. If you feel that you have the time to do the OPs work for them, you are of course free to do so.
