conclusions drawn from just 1 twin, won't that be personal as well?

Tricking the gamer kids to explore Biology? I think he lost by showing the number crunching slide... by claiming the equivalence of electronics and biological-systems, the natural following question would be, why biology at all ;)

"Toxoplasma increases its host's levels of a neurotransmitter involved in social and sexual behavior. To accomplish this task, the parasite alters DNA methylation. Methylated genes are silent, blocked by a molecular cap. Toxoplasma uncaps a group of genes that spurs the creation of the sex-promoting neurotransmitter."

I don't even remember when i had a breakfast... "Many—if not most—studies demonstrating that breakfast eaters are healthier and manage weight better than non-breakfast eaters were sponsored by Kellogg or other breakfast cereal companies whose businesses depend on people believing that breakfast means ready-to-eat cereal.  Independently funded studies tend to show that any eating pattern can promote health if it provides vegetables and fruits, balances calories, and does not include much junk food. For most people, when you eat matters far less than how much you eat."

"Overall Rappaport concludes that “nice [warm] weather is a normal good” is the more important driving force behind the movement to the Sun Belt than is air conditioning per se, though of course air conditioning makes nice warm weather all the nicer. " :)

Markram reminds me of Venter from Human Genome Saga ;) Jokes apart, it did work out well in the end, isn't it?  

“The co-ordinating scientist … is not only a member of all decision-making, executive and management bodies within the HBP, but also chairs them and supervises the administrative processes supporting these bodies. Furthermore, he is a member of all the advisory boards and reports to them at the same time. In addition, he appoints the members of the management team, and leads the operational project management.” 
Critics of the European Human Brain Project were justified, says an independent report on the project.

I was a big fan of their vision and goals. I'm sad to hear that the execution was so poor.

"So why does the constant-force approximation work so well? Because of the mass distribution in Earth, the force of gravity remains roughly constant—and actually increases slightly—down to the outer core, Klotz explains. From there on in, the force of gravity falls with distance much as in the original problem. But by that point, the object is moving so fast that it actually spends very little time passing through the core, where the constant-force approximation is obviously wrong. So in the end, the approximation is good enough." (sciencemag)
This paper examines the gravity tunnel using the internal structure of Earth as ascertained from seismic data. Numerically, it is found that the time taken to fall along the diameter is 38 min, compared to 42 min for a planet with uniform density. The time taken to fall along a straight line between any two points is no longer independent of distance but interpolates between 42 min for short trips and 38 min for long trips.

Story
Tagline
The Answer Lies In The Genome
Introduction
I am a Medical graduate from Delhi University who  has specialised in Computational Biology from Jawaharlal Nehru University. I have a couple of years of experience in the industry. (Mascon and Infosys) and some NGO voluntary work experience (Grassroot CART). Later I had the privilege of visiting Institute of Mathematical Sciences in August, 2004 (thanks to Prof. Gautam Menon). Later I moved to Indian Statistical Institute where I worked on some pattern recognition techniques with Prof. Nikhil R. Pal.  In Fall 2005 I joined University of Missouri - Kansas City 's doctoral program in computer sciences under the guidance of Prof. Dinakar. I came back to India and had the privilege of working with Prof. Rakesh Bhatnagar at Jawaharlal Nehru University , Prof. Nirupama Bhatnagar at International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (thanks to Mohan) and Dimagi (thanks to Vikram). I am currently working at Informatics department of University of Bergen.
