BSc in Biomedical Science, currently studying towards a PhD in Molecular Systems Biology.

I have several years worth of experience in web development and programming as well as basics of graphic design.

I'm a language nerd and a citizen 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 A question related to qPCR analysis
Does your qPCR software not provide you with the progressive graphs where you can see each sample crossing the threshold? That might be a nice picture to show.

comment How best to count bees entering and leaving a hive to measure hive activity?
The only recommendation I would make to improve your question itself is the title - you don't need to say it's a research problem as that's usually obvious, and entomology is in the tags so it doesn't need to be in the title. Try to phrase it as a question. Ideally, the title question allows someone to answer without reading the detailed description.

comment How best to count bees entering and leaving a hive to measure hive activity?
To further reduce the time it takes you, you could start out counting both entrances and exits from the hive - but then check if you get the same results if you only consider entrances. As a measure of bee activity, I would expect entrances and exits to be equivalent and thus it shouldn't matter whether you count either one or both.

Go ahead and eat it - not taking nutrients from something doesn't mean you can't eat it :P

comment What does “developmentally programmed” mean?
Yeah, it looks like just bad phrasing, probably caused by word count restraints.

comment What does “developmentally programmed” mean?
Agreed, this phrase can mean different things depending on the context - the answer still wouldn't be pages long if it included all contexts but it would make it a lot easier if you could provide that background information :)

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.
