  1. An excellent PBS NOVA video series I found explaining string theory!! http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/elegant/program.html
  2. I'm no expert at protein conformations, but predicting the tertiary or quaternary (sp?) stucture of an a.a. sequence, depending on the length of your sequence can be quite a complicated process possibly requiring super computers to estimate the final structure. Since there are so many factors that affect the final structure, many variables have to be considered to compute the final structure. but if your a.a. sequence is simple then you might be able to use regular pc software, but it is still complicated.
  3. I read the wikipedia link already, and if I was very familiar with quantum mechanics, im sure it would help. But i have another question. Why was the string theory developed? does it explain certain aspect of the universe better than our current model?
  4. As the title says I am a biology student, I want to understand string theory and all the controversy behind it. String theory is a model of fundamental physics whose building blocks are one-dimensional extended objects (strings) rather than the zero-dimensional points (particles), I understand what this says, but I don't understand how this would apply to real life or how would change the current understanding of our universe. Compared to our current understanding of the universe, what changes does string theory cause to our current understanding Please try to explain in general terms, with minimal use of complex terminology.

  6. A great debate with representatives from all the studies, the social sciences, biologists, physicists, etc... some of the speakers.. Joan Roughgarden, Richard Dawkins, Francisco Ayala, Carolyn Porco, Steven Weinberg, Lawrence Krauss, Sam Harris, Michael Shermer and more. It is long, but worth it if you watch it all. http://beyondbelief2006.org/Watch/ there is a nerocomputational professor, not sure of his name, but he is bald and has a long goatee, ul kno him when he appears, his lecture on conciousness is excellent, but might require a replay or two.
  7. I'm sayin do it for us, not the creationist,
  8. instead of making immature, but funny, comments about this guy, provide some evidence to discredit his theory. that way we won't hear from him as much.
  9. I was wondering if any knows of any good papers that discuss target specific drug delivery vehicles for cancer. The articles can discuss their applications, method of development, sideffects, etc.... I am doing a 16 week coop with my chem prof. any help would be appreciated.
  10. There are a lot of North American creationist "scientific" institutions that search for the proof of the existence of the judeo-christian god. I was wondering what type of "scientific" evidence might they be looking for? My second question is, if extra terrestrial life is found and we had 100% positive evidence for that, would that invalidate the major monothestic religons of our time? If so what do you think the repercussions will be on society??
