Depends whether you want someone to spoonfeed you the answer or to tell
you where to look.
For example, if I'm interested in working with someone who has a project
addressing the regulation of spon in response to wibble, then I'd do a
PubMed search. If that failed to turn up anything then I'd probably ask
an appropriate froup, but say what research I'd already attempted.
OTOH, if I were an undergraduate being asked to find out about the
regulation of spon in response to wibble then, if I asked about it I'd
ask for pointers, so an answer such as 'Look at PubMed:
would be useful.
Just my tuppence.
