comment Batch several sequences for absent restriction sites
@Swbarnes2 that's backing out of using Biopython, but something we're considering. The actual full library we have is about 1200 enzymes, many of which with wildcards. I wanted to make sure something like that didn't already exist before we build it

@swbarnes2 I can, but that seems only practical so long as I keep the restrictionbatch small. Vs a real test of hundreds of enzymes is that practical?

comment Why are people unable to develop lasting immunity against Norovirus?
+1 I should point out, that my comment that I want to come back with an answer to this question is not because of a disagreement with anything here. Having worked on a culturing system for norovirus, I just have a lot of opinions on the matter. There are no italics extreme enough to to be apllied to the extreme difficulty in culturing, but I really appreciate that note :)

comment Why are people unable to develop lasting immunity against Norovirus?
I am soooo going you have to come back to this when I have time. I'm currently struggling with the scope I want to include (mucosal immunity, IgG vs IgM, HRV serotypes, noro infectious dose...). If I want to dive deep into the biology here would it be better to repost the question there Q/A style, or can juat do it here?

comment Heterocyst function in cyanobacteria and its localization
Though perhaps not relevant to the question, and certainly not true about any cyanobacteria that I know of, but just because something is a "cell" or single celled organism, does not mean it can't be contained within other cells. Mycoplasma, for example, do it all the time. Admittedly it doesn't normally end well for one group of cells, but it happens. +1

comment Cause of Crease in Drupe Fruit
Know any proteins related (screen via Western) or genes (q-PCR)? We could grab samples in various stages during carpel development (though this particular set of trees might not make it to next year).

comment Cause of Crease in Drupe Fruit
@Ilan I actually don't know if this just on the surface at the fruit or if it extends down to the stone. That may vary based on species even. I'm not sure on how many species will be tested, but distorting the line in peaches seems to be an unexpected phenotype.

comment Cause of Crease in Drupe Fruit
@Ilan Part of the normal state. The outside of the fruit tends to have one line/partition/crease going down it from the outside. I'm uncertain if there is a technical name, which is where I could be failing in my lit review. I suppose I could put up a picture and circle what I mean.
