comment Why are nitrogenous bases of DNA hydrophobic if they can hydrogen bond?
@AliceD Nitrogenous base generally refers to the nucleobases in RNA and DNA, and those are certainly biological molecules. The question about hydrophobicity and hydrogen bonding also have biological implications.

@AliceD This is about biological molecules, I see no reason why it would be off-topic here.

comment Why cooked food considered nutritious if proteins decompose at much lower temperatures?
Where are you getting the 40°C temperature from? Denaturation of most proteins happens at higher temperatures than that. And what do you mean by decompose?

comment Biopython - Big Discrepancy Calculating RNA melting Temperature over Literature
The source code for that function is available on Github, there are also some comments in there explaining what methods Biopython uses. The issue might also be that you're comparing apples and oranges, and that your siRNA Tm are not for 7mer parts of an siRNA but something else.
