Developmental Biology Forum

Postby Ultrashogun » Mon May 12, 2008 7:17 pm

I would like to suggest a forum devoted to developmental biology, its such a vast and complex subject I think its merits its own forum.

Categories are created based on demand/interest.

What Dave meant was that if there are many people requesting a particular category then we start considering it. Until now, you are the only person asking for a developmental biology section. I'm not saying developmental biology is not important, but most likely there wouldn't be many posts there.

Just out of curiosity, why dont you think many people are interested in developmental biology?

Couldn't that be easily covered in the zoology and human biology forums?
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

@ultrashogun
I meant not many people are interested specifically in devo on this forum. I base this upon the fact that you are the only one here who has asked about this, and in the 2+ years on this forum i have seen very few questions in this field.

@alex
yes

Might have to do with how intro bio courses usually deal with MCB stuff rather than dev stuff.
