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 A subtle test for color-blindness
i'm sure you could think of something, but the standard tests require asking questions. just make a sign with two colors that would not be distinguishable and ask them to read it.

comment Vaccination and population dynamics of an epidemic
I can imagine a model that explicitly tracks individuals and disease transmission events would work better. Its not my field though, I'm just reading what you have here.
