Bartholomew Cubbins on RNA Episode 8: Current Papers - RNA Binding Sites, P-Bodies, and Retrotransposons

Watch the video (pop)

A rough look at the following papers:
Virus-like particles of the Ty3 retrotransposon assemble in association with P-body components.
Intronic Binding Sites for hnRNP A/B and hnRNP F/H Proteins Stimulate Pre-mRNA Splicing.

Kudos to PLoS and the Open Access option that allows the public real-time access of this great science.

Bartholomew Cubbins on RNA Episode 7: What Not To Do During a Group Meeting (mov)

Watch the video (pops)

A great example of what not to do during your group meeting presentation.

Here we have exhibit A, the last slide of graduate student Y's great data-heavy presentation. And then the fun started. Why, oh why, did he chose to do this. And more importantly, why didn't he run it by me before doing it? Oh, who am I kidding, I would have encouraged it. meh.
