comment Does the fossil record disprove Evolution?
Questions about creationist arguments are off-topic here. Specific questions about evolution are certainly welcome, creationist talking points not so much.

While the CC licence allows copying the entire post, you still have to make clear which parts of the post are copied. You also have to mention the user that made the original post explicitly in addition to linking to the post.

comment What is the state-of-the-art algorithm for multiple sequence alignment?
@skymninge Bioinformatics are on-topic here, and Biostars is not affiliated with SE in any way now (it was a SE 1.0 site, which means they used the SE software but SE wasn't involved otherwise in running the site)

comment What limits the speed of human perception?
Please don't use MathJax for regular text formatting. It is much slower and should only be used when necessary, for math and chemical formulas.

comment How many different protein coding genes are in the Human Biome?
The main text of your answer is entirely copied from a Wikipedia article. While you mentioned the source at the end of your post, you didn't mark the text as a quote. This is still plagiarism and not allowed on this site. You have to make clear any place where you quote a source verbatim. Answers should also not be taken entirely from external sources, they should be in your own words and quotes should be only for support.

comment Is it possible to genetically modify a plant at home?
You might also have to consider any regulations that might exist in your country. In some countries genetic modified organisms can only be handled in designated laboratories.

comment Question about the DNA glycosylase enzyme assay/formamide gel loading buffer
Formamide is a common loading buffer for denaturing gel electrophoresis of nucleic acids. I'd assume that it also denatures most enzymes and stops the reaction that way.
