Re: The hardware is the software
Hey Jackal32, It seems as if you are a one post wonder, but I'll make a quick comment.

How would your research differ from what current scientists are doing with protein structure/function? And how could a measly $5 million get you anywhere with such a huge project?

It appears that the structure determines the role.

Yes, structure plays a significant role in function. It is not the whole of the story, but it is significant.

This statement doesn't follow from your previous one. Software determines the role that the hardware plays. The same hardware can be used for different purposes depending on what software is loaded. The hardware/software concept is a poor analogy in this case.

I suspect that you heard this concept somewhere and got confused as to how to apply it.

Re: The hardware is the software
The chemistry behind protein synthesis is fairly well understood, and it does happen spontaneously.

I know what you are saying here, but to be fair, protein synthesis is a highly regulated process and to say "it happens spontaneously" ... just seems wrong to me.

Re: the answer?
I enjoy your comments that add absolutely nothing to the conversation

I would turn this around on you and ask what have you added to the conversation?

I hope this "new math" you plan to develop will also show us how you can cover $6,040,000 (+ "remaining amount") of research expenses with a $5,000,000 grant.

That's not "new math"... it's the same math the government uses to balance their budget.
