The tag seems a bit redundant to me, as everthing on this site is about biology.

I propose to rename it to just , to bring it in line with all the other tags on the site. Please post your counter-arguments here if you disagree.

I like your proposal, and I would go one step further. Currently there are 5 tags for humans:

  • human-genetics
  • human-genome
  • human-anatomy
  • human-ear
  • human-biology

I propose that we merge genetics/genome to "human-genetics"; anatomy, ear and biology to "human-physiology" to make the tag more descriptive.

  • $\begingroup$ I think human biology itself is an unnecessary tag.. most of our research is already anthropocentric.. for example genetics is genetics.. what is special about human genetics.. it sounds like a journal name.. $\endgroup$
