James and the Giant Corn Genetics: Studying the Source Code of Nature

Biofortified Also Covers Indian Tomatoes

Filed under: Site Business — James @ 8:28 pm

Check out Anastasia’s write up here, check it out! Especially if you’d like a better explanation of the synthetic micro-RNA technique used to knock down the tomato genes targeted in the paper.

My own write up from yesterday also just became my first submission to Research Blogging. My approval from the site just came through this afternoon (a real person had to check out this site and decide if I was serious enough to be allowed to submit posts!). Not sure how often I’ll be writing up Research Blogging worthy entries as they do require a much greater investment of time than my usual content, and I’m pretty sure my 500 word entries get read a lot more than my 1500 word ones anyway, but there are a couple of genome evolution papers that I’d love to talk about in detail when I have the time.


  1. Thanks for the mention! I’ve been meaning to return the favor, and will do so now.

  2. No problem. And thank you for the plug on biofortified. It was interesting to see how we were drawn to explaining different aspects of the same paper.
