comment Best medication for chicken pox?
@Remi.b I'm not even sure it'd be on-topic there, as they don't give personal medical advice either.

comment Why plants and animals are so different even though they come from the same ancestors?
I strongly suggest reading through Understanding Evolution from the University of California, Berkeley. It will correct a lot of the misconceptions you have.

comment Are human beings evolved to eat meat?
And of course humans have canines - just look in a mirror. I'm not likely to trust anything published on "celestialhealing.net"...

comment Are human beings evolved to eat meat?
Human beings, or any living creatures, are not designed to do anything. There is no "design" in evolution, merely the accumulation of changes in gene frequencies.

revised Placental Adherence and Premature Heartbeat
please stop adding vague and unnecessary tags to your questions, especially if you're not going to take the time to make a tag wiki for them. "Prematurity" is extremely vague - is it about hair loss? development? what stage? Ask on Meta if you are considering a new tag.

Ironically, assuming 100% GSD, FISH might be a good option :)

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.

comment Did the Zika virus mutate?
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.
