Nature Podcasts, RNA Wars and Scary Medicine

  • Nature now has a free podcast. Check it out.
  • Are microRNAs ancient remnants from an RNA-world arms race? Viruses produce miRNAs to manipulate the host cell during infection. Likewise cells can make miRNAs of their own as an anti-viral defense. The latest findings are reviewed in Molecular Cell.
  • Just in time for Halloween - vintage drug ads! Very entertaining in a sci-fi horror kind of way.
    WARNING: SOME IMAGES MAY CAUSE ANXIETY, HALLUCINATIONS AND/OR NIGHTMARES.
