Science review - 2009 week 43

Glamour:
Nature about scientists talking journalists fooling them and how to react (and how not):

About the Polymath project, where a mathematic problem was solved using an open approach with wikis and so on - really cool:
http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v461/n7266/full/461879a.html

and then you could also read an article about Google Wave and it's impact for science (accoring to the author - I am less sure there will be an impact).:

KAUST - the universtiy in the desert (and in a dictatorship like kingdom):

PLoS Medicine - refocuses and adopts new interesting concepts - from Twitter to PLoS Currents:

Methylation:
An interview with one of founders of "methylation": Adrian Bird
http://www.plosgenetics.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pgen.1000667

Nice debate about how methylation patterns are generated:

RNA:
Three way junctions in RNA - found in many RNA structures:

Biology and Chemistry:
Nature Chemical Biology about the downsides of an reductionist apporach - Cells are more than the simple sum of it's part (systems biology?)
http://www.nature.com/nchembio/journal/v5/n11/full/nchembio.258.html
http://www.nature.com/nchembio/journal/v5/n11/full/nchembio.241.html

RNA and Chromatin structure control a range of biological processes - an overview:
http://www.nature.com/nrg/journal/v10/n11/full/nrg2692.html

Structual Biology:
Oberving biology in atomic resolution in real time - cool:
