Genetics is the logic of life (at least of mine).

08:00 EDT 16th October 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Genetics is the logic of life (at least of mine)."

I retrace my path from math to medicine to biochemistry to yeast genetics, my focus on infectious diseases of yeast and finally prions. My discovery of yeast prions relied on my particular focus on the logical relations of non-chromosomal genetic elements and the chromosomal genes involved in their propagation and expression. Pursuing an understanding of yeast prions involved structural biology based on genetics, solid-state NMR, population genetics, and more genetics.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Approximate, quantitative reasoning that is concerned with the linguistic ambiguity which exists in natural or synthetic language. At its core are variables such as good, bad, and young as well as modifiers such as more, less, and very. These ordinary terms represent fuzzy sets in a particular problem. Fuzzy logic plays a key role in many medical expert systems.
