comment Why does high-voltage mostly shock a person, and even small current kill?
It depends entirely where the current passes through. If the circuit is completed through your hand, you are unlikely to die no matter what the current. But it it completes across your chest, you run a much higher risk of fibrillation and heart attack.

comment What does “cellular” mean in this context?
Diatoms are generally porous, so perhaps that's why they thought it might mean that. But I've never known 'cellular' to mean porous.

comment Transcript(omics) terminology: cDNAs, ESTs, RNA-seq, etc
I think RNA-Seq assembly prior to alignment is common in non-model species, where you need to first describe the features you align the reads to.

comment How exactly are game theoretical evolutionary models described during implementation for computer simulations?
Probably both. Berkeley Madonna is specifically for modelling, but it's horrible, so it's not that widely used.
