I think this has a place here, given our mix of people. #8 is my favorite.
And the mirror article:
And while I’m at it, Biostatistics versus Lab Research.
It would seem that most biologists are more interested in the emergent property than the physics that underlies it. I know I could care less about the physics of transcription factor binding, but I do very much care about the number of genes in a gene list that are affected by a specific transcription factor. I know that complementary bases bind to one another, but I’m not nearly as interested in the physics that underlies it. It is good to be reminded that different disciplines approach questions from different perspectives.
