We don't need organic holism to give impermeable whole-ness, the total woman and her feminist variants (mutants?). In the 1940s, it was learned that these factors, now called genes, are composed of a complex molecule, deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA. The website presents resources about college programs, suggested coursework for the middle and high school years, opportunities to participate in STEM-related projects and programs, and profiles of professionals working in STEM careers. Everyone has some notion of what they consider to be SF, but surveys of the general public reveal sometimes deep misunderstandings.

Among some of the more interesting rules discovered by the EA are as follows: subscribers are more likely to churn if they are personally subscribed to the service plan and have not been admitted to any bonus scheme (a potential solution is to admit all such subscribers to bonus schemes); subscribers are more likely to churn if they live in Kuala Lumpur, are between 36 and 44 in age, and pay their bills with cash (presumably because it is easier for subscribers who pay cash, rather than those whose accounts are automatically debited, to switch providers); and subscribers living in Penang who signed up through a certain dealer are more likely to churn (this dealer may be providing poor customer service and should be investigated).

Unless genes are damaged in the process, the patient is likely to be normal, but will produce lots of abnormal gametes. * "Robertsonian translocation" is a reciprocal translocation involving two acrocentric chromosomes, producing a tiny chromosome that is lost and a very large chromosome. * "Isochromosomes" result from faulty chromosome division.
