Happy labor day if you’re somewhere that celebrates it. If you’re not, consider my working from lab an act of solidarity with you, although in all honesty it’s more not-wanting-to-take-six-years-to-finish-grad-school.
I’ve been meaning to thank all of you again, August was the first time traffic on this site has come close to matching the levels seen right after the maize genome was published. And while that shouldn’t matter (most of the benefit I get from this site is practice articulating scientific concepts, and that would work almost as well if I was just talking to myself), it’s great to know people are actually reading some of it.
I’ve got a couple of new additions to our list of published and in progress plant genomes, which I’ll try to get updated tomorrow.
Until then, I leave you with this comic.
