This question is on hold. I don't understand why. Rather than have a long comment thread, I'd rather discuss it here.
It seems like there are two objections:
- The question is unclear. I don't understand how this could be. For any organism, we can calculate a value phi. I want to know what that value is. What's unclear?
- It's not "on topic". Here are those criteria:
You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page.
This is an actual problem I face. It's probably one of the shortest questions on this site, so I doubt it's "chatty".
Your questions should be reasonably scoped. If you can imagine an entire book that answers your question, you’re asking too much.
Question can be answered with one URL.
If your motivation for asking the question is “I would like to participate in a discussion about ______”, then you should not be asking here. However, if your motivation is “I would like others to explain ______ to me”, then you are probably OK. (Discussions are of course welcome in our real time web chat.)
Don't care to discuss it. (In fact, I'm pretty annoyed I have to write even this.)
