Whole Genome Sequence and transcriptome Analysis Software - please help a noob! by Torontonian5640 in bioinformatics

Alright this makes sense. But to get more specefic, say I have 2 separate fasta files from 2 separate genomes. PART 1: Let's say I am looking for a known gene "x" that is present in one genome fasta file, and I want to confirm that it is also present (or not) in the 2nd genome's fasta file.

A rather boisterous evangelical Christian has been protesting at a local Uni, so of course some students had some fun with it. But the cop’s face takes it for me. by [deleted] in pics

Thanks for understanding, really appreciated. Just know there are those of us who don't flock to religion as a tool of hate and judgement. Many of us seek comfort in it, and we strongly believe in helping those in need in a loving way, while being respectful to everyone all around.

You definitely have a solid point. As Raghnail mentioned this was targeted towards the Jewish Pharisees at the time who would do stuff like this, but from an incredibly authoritative and powerful position within society.

Yet it definitely applies here as well in the case of hypocrisy. We're all sinners, this guy has his own sins without a doubt, and yet he's doing nothing constructive by any means to help others who might authentically be struggling, with things like addiction for example.

I believe this applies strongly "Why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own?" - Matthew 7:3

Hey man, I get where you're coming from, in fact i have the same resentment you have towards many "evangelical pastors" - It's almost like being part of a country, it's a mixed bag of opinions and also people with hateful intentions. Yet there are those who strive for love and peace - something which many of us feel far outweighs judgement and hypocritical ideologies. There are those of us who believe God is love, many seem to overlook the significance of this in the bible, it really is the main theme. But regardless of religion or belief in God, please understand that these type of people have painted a very disfigured and contorted picture of our faith. Yet I guess this makes me a minority among Evangelicals - just please don't throw us all in one group, because we're really not!

As an evangelical Christian myself, I find individuals like this super annoying, to the point where I'm sure they don't understand anything in the Bible. Not to get into any religious debate, but many of us feel like the security guard in the photo.

Immunologists: I am to write a school essay on an interleukin of choice. I am interested in autoimmune disorders (namely multiple sclerosis & Alzheimer's), can anyone lead me in the right direction for which interleukins play key roles in these diseases based on the literature? by Torontonian5640 in Immunology

A great answer, it is becoming more clear to me know as you described all of the overlapping / downstream / upstream variation of interleukin functionality, a very complex domain indeed. Thank you for your help

thank you for the suggestion. Like you said there must be a number of interleukins which play differing roles in the process of each disease, in which case I am looking to find a confirmed few to pick one out of for my essay.

A New Study Suggests Humans Present Immunity Against the Revolutionary CRISPR Gene-Editing System. This is Yet Another Discovery Aiding Researchers in the Development of Next-Generation Treatments for Genetically Influenced Diseases Including Cancer, Alzheimer's, and Many Others. by Torontonian5640 in Futurology

It presents immunity against it, in other words the immune system has been shown to carry out processes to stop it from working. However, the article states that out of the two variants of CRISPR tested, one was only partially blocked by the immune system. This doesn’t mean we can’t use it, it just brings to light things that need to be bypassed, as with all other therepeptic models.

I'm not an expert in the quantum computing field but from my understanding, the challenge is hardware-based. Developing quantum-mechanic hardware that can function for advanced computing (we're talking super fast and with the ability to do things todays regular computers just can't) and also to be able to mass-produce this technology.
