Learn a trade for a rainy day

It seems that the use of equations does not help to get published in biological journals (1). Yet, for some of us the equations have a clear, powerful and almost irreplaceable meaning. Benedetta and I collected a number of equations related to protein oligomerisation (2). Some formulas deal with very basic principles that can be applied to other polymers. Some equations were derived by us to predict the aggregation rates, with or without fitting of internal parameters.
