Finishing a BSc in Biomedical Science in 2014.

I have several years worth of experience in web development and programming as well as basics of graphic design (meaning that I like toying with inkscape).

I'm a language nerd and a private science geek. I love techy stuff and wish I had the time to fiddle with electronics myself, but to that regard even building my own PC will have to wait for a while now.

comment Gene perturbation, what is it used for, explain to computer scientists?
@GeekCat, currently your question is too broad and actually includes several sub-questions. You are more likely to get a good answer if you break it down into distinct separate questions. For a start, I would recommend that you ask "What does gene perturbation mean in the context of gene regulatory networks and how is it achieved practically?" as this will help you to understand what else you need to ask.

The file is gzipped, so use a tool like 7zip or WinRAR to unzip it. After that, just open the fasta file in any text reader..?

comment Genetics: pedigree following a rare trait autosomal recessive
If "affected" means "aa", then "unaffected" should mean "not aa", i.e. "AA or Aa". If neither IV-1 not IV-2 are affected, the offspring could only be affected if both are carriers. The chance of IV-1 being a carrier is 50% whereas the chance of IV-2 being a carrier is 66% (because IV-2 had 1/4 chance to be AA, 1/2 chance Aa and 1/4 chance aa, but we know the genotype isn't aa, thus leaving 1/3 chance AA and 2/3 chance Aa). If they both are Aa, there is a 25% chance of offspring being affected (aa). 1/2 * 2/3 * 1/4 = 1/12 = (D). Edit: Haha excuse my necromancy, was prompted by a flag.

In my experience it's preference of the speaker and an English-speaking audience would probably understand any of those phrasings: "natural log", "lynn", "el en" and the "of" is also optional, i.e. "natural log 10" and "natural log of 10" will probably be the same thing. There might be formal rules for your particular presentation which I don't know about, and I think you'd be most likely to get a useful answer on that on Maths.SE
