1. ## RNA silencing

Can someone explain how RNA silencing helps drug design?
2. ## Some Tough Ones

Good luck with algebra. I didn't understand it at school either.

Golden ratio
4. ## Validity of Statistics

Laplace once said that The theory of chance consists in reducing all the events of the same kind to a certain number of cases equally possible, that is to say, to such as we may be equally undecided about in regard to their existence, and in determining the number of cases favorable to the event whose probability is sought. The ratio of this number to that of all the cases possible is the measure of this probability, which is thus simply a fraction whose numerator is the number of favorable cases and whose denominator is the number of all the cases possible. Before going further, it is important to pin down the sense of the words chance and probability. We look upon a thing as the effect of chance when we see nothing regular in it, nothing that manifests design, and when furthermore we are ignorant of the causes that brought it about. Thus, chance has no reality in itself. It is nothing but a term for expressing our ignorance of the way in which the various aspects of a phenomenon are interconnected and related to the rest of nature. Does it make sense?
5. ## Beyond infinity

Could you explain the bit about Godel's theorem of incompleteness?
