sorta weird science question(s)  
I'm not exactly sure how to phrase this properly so I hope that what I want to ask actually comes across with some coherency. (my weak goggle-fu makes this hard for me to find an anwer for. lol)

- If a doctor is testing a patient for specific active gene is it possible for the doctor to 'miss' finding it if the gene is dormant?

- And is it possible for a gene to, not necessarily 'hide', but be in a different place within DNA and cause the doctor to not find the dormant gene?

I really hope that made some sense.

(this is actually for a possible sga story and if it's not possible I guess I'm going to have resort to some serious handwaving. *g*)

long answer is better... you can`t really miss a gene, but it`s not like we know what they all do... and sometimes multiple gene sequences do the same thing. or the effect in a similar way...

and that`s before we start talking mutations. mutations could happend after the time the doc does the sequence decode.

well dang. Handwaving it is then. ;) Thanks!

Hey, Kaz. This is off-topic, but have you seen/heard the lyrics to "Want" by Recoil? Or was it you who mentioned it on LJ at some point within the last few months?

SPN vid to the song


I was just watching the vid, and how perfect is this song for Scorpius/John?

Or have I already commented to the same effect previously?

*is potentially brain-dead*

Yeah, that was me that posted the lyrics/song because I want to vid it for Scorpius/John so badly. And yup! You'd commented on it. :D


*goes to check out spn vid*

Thanks. It's sad when the mind starts to go, isn't it?
