comment how to find no of annotations of a specific chromosome (say chr10 that is in the chromosome's column)in a tab delimited file in linux
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not about biology. It is a programming question that belongs on Stack Overflow, provided the poster reads their help center, including what is on-topic and what is not, and how to ask a good question. Please also follow the question checklist.

I don't have the slightest idea what you're asking here, or if it even relates to biology.

Algae are not plants. They're algae.

Your "minimal genome" statement is equivalent to saying "We've learned how to make a wooden wheel, so inventing a Formula One car should be trivial."

For those viewing this in the LQP queue - just because an answer may be incorrect or lacking details does not necessarily make it low quality or a target for deletion. It is an attempt to answer the question. If you don't like it, simply down-vote.

comment ADCs: by what mechanism are antibodies internalised
This is actually an extremely broad question, which is why I have voted to close. As @Kendall indicates, the primary (but not only) method of antibody internalization is endocytosis, but there are multiple different forms, and the exact mechanism will depend on the structure of the Ab, its target, where it binds, and the physiological context (normal vs. cancerous cells, etc.). The Annual Reviews article linked might be a little above your head (if you can get access to it), so I'd start with the wiki article I linked, as well as google searches.

@Pi5 then please cite your sources in your question so we can evaluate them. Just because you read something on the internet or in a book doesn't mean it's true, unfortunately. Google "chemtrails" for an example.

First you'll have to provide evidence that preservatives do have an effect on saliva.
