Can someone help me distinguish between Platystrophia and Mucrospirifer? Thanks :) The hinge of Platystrophia is usually less than 180 deg, while Mucrospirifer usually has a straight hinge. Platystrophia is usually also closer to a square, while Mucrospirifer tends to be much longer than it is wide...

Re: It's About TIme

clepsydra = water clock. It is an improvement from sundials. If the length of a pendulum is doubled, and the gravitational constant of Earth is halved (somehow :P), by what factor does the period increase?

Re: Protein Modeling C

I think what you might be doing is considering the space between the markings as the amino acids. That space is merely the backbone of the protein that connects the individual amino acids. Each marking represents the individual amino acids, and that would be where you'd identify any sidechains impo...
