comment Is it true that human cells grow in levorotation?
It is unclear what exactly you mean by levorotation in this case. Do you actually mean physically rotating cells? Or do you mean something related to stereochemistry and the rotation of polarized light?

comment How can I generate a random DNA sequence?
@WYSIWYG Each individual coupling is random, and if you get to a length of DNA where you don't have enough molecules for all permutations, it gets truly random as well.

comment How can I generate a random DNA sequence?
@WYSIWYG I'll have to look at the paper again, I though I had read them indicating that they were using chemical synthesis like I described, but it looks like I read that into their description

comment Why can't our eyes smoothly transition from side to side without focusing on a moving object?
Saccades are not necessarily under conscious control, which does contradict your first paragraph. I think some references would be useful to support your answer.

comment How much ATP is consumed during protein synthesis?
You might want to think a bit about the boundary of your question, which parts of the whole process do you want to include. Loading the tRNA uses ATP as well, do you want to include other aspects or just the peptide bond formation? I'm not sure if there's a single value here, as far as I remember there are also elongation factors and other proteins that require ATP/GTP for protein biosynthesis.

comment Can RNases/DNases survive in strong acid/base solutions of around 10M?
@WYSIWYG Interesting. There are quite a few protocols I've seen that use relatively low NaOH concentrations over night to remove RNases, though the one I used myself used 2M NaOH and worked for me.
