    Sir Ramsey? What was his first name? (Incidentally, you don't refer to a knight by "Sir Surname"; it's always "Sir First Name" or "Sir First & Last Name".)

    No, it's not that chap anyway. Dido is closer to the correct answer.

    Glenn T. Seaborg, the only man to have an element publicly named after him whilst he was still alive.

    The five elements are: seaborgium, lawrencium (named after the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory in Berkeley, CA, where he worked), berkelium, californium and americium.

    Who's up next?

    What is the histone code hypothesis?

    The origins of the genome is somehow related to histones?

    I love the fact I actually read my biology book

    I don't remember exactly but I think it is x-DNA "interactions" being directed by histone modifications

    I don't remember what x is but it has something to do with chromosomes (I think)

    I hate how we can't use the internet for help :(

    ish... I'm looking for a bit more detail, but it is to do with histone modifications.

    I just want to find what x is, I can't remember but I'm pretty sure I have everything else :(

    In what way, and how do different modifications affect this?

    biochemically
    depends on the modification

    chromatin-DNA interactions are controlled by combos of histone modifications

    My knowledge of histone coding is limited to histone methylation blocking transcription and acetylation enhancing it.

    those two that bright eye mentioned modify histone tails change the chromatin structure and BTW no one is entirely sure of how it exactly happens
