Not a reading list, but
How about this - read the Wikipedia articles on the subjects you're interested in, and then come back and ask us questions?
The truth is we're bored as hell around here, we love to talk about biology, but don't really get the chance. It'd be more interesting for us to address your questions directly than to send you off to the library. There's a fair amount of genuine expertise around here, quite a few PhD's, a lot of BA/BS's, and a lot of people doing work right now in science. If there's one thing you can't get a scientist to shut up about, it's their work.

Know-nothing's don't ask questions; that's why they know nothing.
Two strategies would be best. If you have one or two quick questions, put them in the "Quick Questions" thread - somebody else will have to put a link, I'm doing this on a phone. If you can collect 4-5 questions that all kind of revolve around a central point or issue, those could probably be a thread of their own. And you could certainly keep putting questions in this thread until some moderator decides otherwise.
Seriously, hit us with your questions. We love questions. It's arrogant, declarative ignorance that draws our ire.
