Thirteen tips for engaging with physicists, as told by a biologist

I think this has a place here, given our mix of people. #8 is my favorite. :joy:

Twelve tips for engaging with biologists, as told by a physicist


And while Iā€™m at it, Biostatistics versus Lab Research. :wink:

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 Iā€™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.
