"What is a gene? Explain how the concept of a gene has evolved through time and how recent discoveries in whole-genome expression data changed the definition of what a gene is."I also missed 0.1 point for what I think are rounding errors (the correct answer for calculating nucleotide substitutions under the Kimura model was 18.9. My answer? 19.2... doh!). Otherwise, I could have had 27 out of 25 point dammit.
Seriously though, I'm really stoked. I've never done this well on an exam since I took a class on Darwin in Spring 2004 (one of my two A+'s as an undergrad, the other was in Physics I). I do not consider myself a smart person by any means, but I work hard and have a good memory for science stuff. Maybe its a sign that I need to do less ecology and get more into evolution?
