  • The Failed Hook Up: A Sitcom Starring S. cerevisiae

    05/27/2015

    As anyone who watches a situation comedy knows, long range relationships are tricky. The longer the couple is separated, the more they drift apart. Eventually they are just too different, and they break up. Of course if this were the end of the story, it would be the plot of the worst comedy ever. What usually happens in the sitcom is that one or both of them find someone more compatible and live happily ever after... Read...
  • Getting the Big Picture from 100 Genomes

    05/20/2015

    Imagine if aliens visited the earth to learn about dogs, but they stumbled upon a colony of the very rare Peruvian Hairless. Taking a sample for DNA analysis, they would retreat to their home planet, do their studies, and conclude that all dogs had smooth, mottled skin and a stiff mohawk—as well as whatever crazy mutations the Peruvian Hairless happens to carry.  Until recently, S. cerevisiae researchers have been a bit like those aliens. The genomic... Read...
  • If it Swims Like a Duck...

    05/06/2015

    Back in the 1980’s some U.S. politicians were proposing to raise money by something they called “revenue enhancements”. Richard Darman, the budget director at the time, correctly pointed out that a revenue enhancement really is just a tax increase by another name.  To make his point, he used the expression, “If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck.” In other words, just because politicians call it something else, if a...
