The place for all things relating to all subjects of Biology!

Post any GIFs that show biological concepts. These include things such as cell division, something happening at a cellular level, a GIF that demonstrates some sort of animal behaviour, etc.

Explanations and further information are desirable, plus you can farm some comment karma, so there really is no downside.

If a man tucks his testes into the inguinal canal like swimmers do, could he be kicked in the groin without any additional pain? eg, the same pain level as being kicked in the thigh.

Does Choosing bio in 11th class a good choice?

A lot of people have a mind set that those who choose biology in 11th are either going to become doctor, nurse, physiologist etc or either they have ruined there career by taking biology.. There are a lot of scope from biology subject but you'll have to study for that. People nowadays don't have patience they want job and wanna be a millionaire at the age of 20-24, biology is a subject which need deep study only then you can do good in it. You can go for forensic, research scholar, professor, Marie biologist, biomedical science, microbiology, bio-chemistry and many more uncountable fields.

How does a living cell read a map? 🛂🗺

Obviously is not a map, I means DNA.

When you are exploring a new museum, you need a map to know which rooms there are, and some times the maps shows "You are here"🚩 .

In a developing living being, all cells read the DNA and copy a section (transcription) to know what function they must fulfill (cellular differentiation).

But before all this, a cell must know where it is located.

Does current science know how this happens? What is the name of this process?

In case of deformity or teratoma, I think this cellular process doesn't work well.

r/biologygifs will be joining the blackout on June 12th

https://preview.redd.it/4mps7ql41e5b1.png?width=1116&format=png&auto=webp&s=5503bcb445953cee6cca6b24973d01b83c53df49

This subreddit will be joining in on the June 12th-14th protest of Reddit's API changes that will essentially kill all 3rd party Reddit apps. What's going on?

A recent Reddit policy change threatens to kill many beloved third-party mobile apps, making a great many quality-of-life features not seen in the official mobile app permanently inaccessible to users.

On May 31, 2023, Reddit announced they were raising the price to make calls to their API from being free to a level that will kill every third party app on Reddit, from Apollo to Reddit is Fun to Narwhal to BaconReader.

Even if you're not a mobile user and don't use any of those apps, this is a step toward killing other ways of customizing Reddit, such as Reddit Enhancement Suite or the use of the old.reddit.com desktop interface .

This isn't only a problem on the user level: many subreddit moderators depend on tools only available outside the official app to keep their communities on-topic and spam-free.

What's the plan?

On June 12th, many subreddits will be going dark to protest this policy. Some will return after 48 hours: others will go away permanently unless the issue is adequately addressed, since many moderators aren't able to put in the work they do with the poor tools available through the official app. This isn't something any of us do lightly: we do what we do because we love Reddit, and we truly believe this change will make it impossible to keep doing what we love.

The two-day blackout isn't the goal, and it isn't the end. Should things reach the 14th with no sign of Reddit choosing to fix what they've broken, we'll use the community and buzz we've built between then and now as a tool for further action.

What can you do as a user?

  • Complain. Message the mods of r/reddit.com, who are the admins of the site: message /u/reddit: submit a support request: comment in relevant threads on r/reddit, such as this one, leave a negative review on their official iOS or Android app- and sign your username in support to this post.
  • Spread the word. Rabble-rouse on related subreddits. Meme it up, make it spicy. Bitch about it to your cat. Suggest anyone you know who moderates a subreddit join the coordinated mod effort at r/ModCoord.
  • Boycott and spread the word...to Reddit's competition! Stay off Reddit entirely on June 12th through the 13th- instead, take to your favorite non-Reddit platform of choice and make some noise in support!
  • Don't be a jerk. As upsetting this may be, threats, profanity and vandalism will be worse than useless in getting people on our side. Please make every effort to be as restrained, polite, reasonable and law-abiding as possible.

What can you do as a moderator?

Thank you for your patience in the matter,

-Mod Team
