A serious treatment of biology is outside the scope of biology. Shit like Penrose's quantum theory of mind, the hard problem of the mechanism for memory, and accounting for the embryology of neural development (what specifies neuron interconnection? Hint: DNA is no "schematic" and not analogous to compression (only a few GB data in genome)).

People from Von Neumann to Freeman Dyson have though about the problem of mind as analog computation and otherwise. Hard shit, way outside the scope of biology as it's taught and practiced.

I study biochemistry and can tell you every one of my bio classes could be better explained by a chemist. in the end, all of the concepts boil down to chemistry anyway, so you just end up staring mindlessly at the surface level problem as a biologist.

Shit, at least show some 100 protein autophagy pathway or 25-enzyme, 75-coadaptor late endosomal trafficking paths

You have the nucleus but not ATP-GTP transversion models for protein and molecular import/export. Fucking pleb!

And Mitochondria. How simple, just following a 50 step process to convert H+ to ATP? Bet you didn't even know about it's absolutely distinct mechanism of DNA regulation or its roles in apoptosis or immune regulation.

>> No.7497201

Right!

Chemists know everything AFAIK, like how NLRP3 has chemical residues that ascribe it functions as an adapter protein. No other functions for it right?

Oh shit, biologists found that it actually has gene regulatory functions. Shows us biologists for trusting you biochemists.
But her, at least that mechanism for arabinose as a mechanism for cellulose generation stood as a long-lasting model for biologists to follow. Still useful i see... oh wait, cell biologists found that to be a vital precursor for invasin protein regulation in infective bacteria

Shoot! Surely we'll find something useful for you biochemists to do. In the meantime, memorize some flashcards or something

that's mostly because physicists are afraid of complexity. What can't be approached analytically or with some statistical approximation is "not fundamental enough". Of course the computational approach increases in popularity, but I think we're still far away from physics delving into the fundamental effects arising from complexity

Biology is in the process of becoming a legit hard science. Genomics, bioinformatics and neuroscience are leading the way. The rest is not far behind.

Chaos Theory and Graph Theory(with lots of computing power) are the drivers of this behind the scenes, we are slowly building up the math to
describe biology.

Chemists are the most autistic people in the world bar none.
Every single Chemist I've encountered in my life was smelly, creepy, and looked even worse than your typical /g/ autist.
What is it about Chemistry that turns people into that? Females get it even worse. Is it the sexual frustration?
