comment Do we digest in our mouth?
Welcome to Biology.SE! You can make the experience yourself. Put a piece of bread in your mouth for several minutes. Don't chew (would be cheating) and see how the bread starts to degrade.

comment Specific genetic code sequence
I don't fully understand the 2 downvotes. I don't think this question is poorly phrased, unclear or too easy. I think the site is accepting questions that do not necessarily lead to one single perfect answer but that may lead to a range of possible good answers. +1

comment Specific genetic code sequence
I think one can make an answer out of @cagliari2005 comment. I am not totally sure what falls within the definition of sequence motifs but you could add a few examples such as the TATA box. Might want also to talk about the start and stop codons that are a bit particular by themselves. Maybe a word about how to get such sequence. Eventually a sequence of a famous gene such as Foxp2 gene (humans), the SRY gene (all mammals I think), the HOX gene (very widespread) or the oxytocin gene for examples.

comment Why do cows (and other hooved animals) need a hierarchy?
@bobthejoe Why is this closed? I explained my reasons in a "comment-answer" below. I still don't think it is clear. But if you understand the question, you can maybe address my misunderstanding below to help others. Or you could eventually directly try to answer the question.

comment 2 things: work and life
Welcome to Biology.SE. In addition to be a homework question, you should always try to restrict your post to one single question.

comment How long does a mosquito take to land on a host, bite, and fly off?
Btw, I've been told that bites when they have to hurry up hurt more than bites when they had time to suck, make sure to be completely fed and leave when they finished. But that might be a urban legend, I don't know.

comment How long does a mosquito take to land on a host, bite, and fly off?
Nice answer +1. Having worked with mosquitoes during my undergrad, I can tell that it very much depend on the activity on the host though. A mosquito coming to bite you the night while you're partying with your friends outside might often just land and go away too afraid that we sensed its presence. But if you're sleeping (and if you're not moving during your sleep), then the mosquito may take longer. I haven't read the paper but those estimates seem to correspond to static hosts.

comment Is human reaction time really allmost purely genetic?
Welcome to Biology.SE. There is misunderstanding about what "genetically determined" mean in your post. It is a very common issue. On this post I linked 4 other posts who explain this concept. You should read about it.

comment Dominant and recessive epistasis
Ok. If my answer answered your question you can check it. If not: knowing that your question will likely soon get closed. If you manage to repeat the text (and figures) of the campbell to clarify the question in time, you may get better answers. The post can also be reopened afterward. Good luck.
