"the question I am trying to answer is 'which proteins from list A interact with proteins from list B and vice-versa?'" You and every biophysicist on the planet.

@terdon. Ha hah, all right. Honestly, I thought there was a reasonable possibility that you were an earnest seeker after truth

comment What is the difference between embryology and developmental biology?
@terdon they have zygotes. All multicellular organisms have at least some form of reproduction where their offspring pass through a single-cell or few-cell state (though I'm sure there's at least a few exceptions to this).

comment What is the difference between a phosphotransferase, a phosphatase, a phosphorylase and a kinase?
@canadianer That's true. My point was more about the futility of trying to define a short nomenclature for the set of all enzymes. Their complexity defies any simple classification. Save the jargon for when you have specifics to talk about, and talk about generalities in general terms.

@tryingToGetProgrammingStraight If you have a whole laundry list, try posting them here. Just maybe keep it to one a day.

comment What is the progressive evolutionary advantage that leads to flying?
@tryingToGetProgrammingStraight More seriously, it really depends on the organism/system in question. For example, the debate over why humans started walking upright has been a particularly acrimonious and silly one.
