On Fire!

On a brighter note, C. elegans biology (my own real-life organism of choice) is on a roll. First, there was the Nobel Prize for the complete cell lineage in 2002. Now, the Nobel Prize for RNA interference. Did you know that it took John Sulston and his colleagues longer to complete the cell lineage work, than it took Fire and Mello to get the Nobel Prize since their paper came out. Congratulations!
