A few of the example questions that were asked during the definition phasewere quite interesting. I'd love to see some of the answers that we get on the site. Some that would interest me:

  • Which online resources do you use for protein 3D structure prediction?
  • Which assays can be used to detect methylation of DNA?
  • How and why does temperature affect photosynthesis?
  • What role do histones play in pre-mRNA splicing?
  • Many others.

Is there currently a policy in place about this? How should we approach this? What do you think?

I see no problem with posting most of those questions, but they need to be fleshed out a bit. Currently they are only one sentence, that is a bit short for a good question. Some context and motivation would be nice, though that might be hard in a few cases.

I would love it if you could post some of those questions. I do believe that I have already asked the first in a different form:

First pass protein structure prediction

Please go ahead. Those are interesting questions, they should be asked (properly). This might also help to pick up the pace of the site a little.
