PhD structural biology. I do bioinformatics in the SF bay area. Interested in systems / synthetic biology, expression analysis and machine learning.

Working with a Biotech Accelerator in the East Bay. http://www.meetup.com/Berkeley-Biolabs/

I believe that biology and other stackexchange sites should welcome newbies and encourage dialog about science, evolution, technology and etc.

comment Are There Rules for How Proteins Are Formed?
Yes - it really depends on what you call rules. If you call Newton's laws 'rules about how objects move' you could just call them rules. we could say "vanderWaals forces, Maxwell's equations, Hooke potentials and Newton's Laws" are the rules of protein folding, but its not much of a guideline. Oh nuts i also forgot to mention that protein folding is not really solved. I will put that in..

comment How long is DNA stable in a freezer?
I usually keep plasmid minipreps at 4C for months its true. I think the difference is if the ends of the DNA are sheared or ragged, as in a typical gDNA prep, then it might not be so great to leave it unfrozen.

this could be worded as a request for some pointers to protein folding, the poster should be forgiven for not using exactly the right words.

interesting @AnkurChakravarthy - mind outlining how much more likely such hotspots are than the background here for the record?
