Huzzah! I can now read posts with phrases like "GPT2,a glucose 6-phosphate/phosphate translocator, plays an important role in environmental sensing in mature leaves of Arabidopsis thaliana.... the partitioning of glucose 6-phosphate, or related metabolites, between the cytosol and the plastid modulates these developmental responses." almost like it's English!

It's worth marking an uptick in comprehension.

I had to read that a few times even to pronounce the words. I do know what metabolites are having aced chemistry and organic chemistry at college a long time ago.

I didn't take either biology or organic chem in college or high school, so once the discussion moves past atomic structure and bonding into macro-molecular behavior, i mainly read, "blah, blah, blah."

I've been listening to biology lectures and reading biology textbooks this summer, so i'm actually catching up.

Yeah, I think that's *definitely* worth marking down :-).
