California vs. Nature (does it mimic USA vs. BP. vs UK? .. no). From the comments: "Fuck Nature - PLoS yea!". ok.

Pay people for compliance. Happens everywhere. Let's extend it to medicine.

Another method and webserver for RNA structural comparison called FRASS. Cool. They also take into account my LaJolla method. And the best: LaJolla does score very well.

Simply the future: Integrating stuff. Reminds me a little bit of the early beginnings of Computers. At the beginning they were small (in terms of transistors) and stupid. Now they are.. Hmm. Still stupid, but mankind has managed to make them superlarge and really powerful calculators that can be used for a range of things. The hope is that mankind can make abstractions on many levels to make sense out of the celullar machinery for the better.

Cool section in Nature (Article series):
Nature: Applications of Next Generation Sequencing
http://www.nature.com/nrg/series/nextgeneration/index.html

Detecting methylation can be powerful for many things. For instance diagnostics of cancer types and such. And there seems to be a new cool method available that can boost research there:
Nature Reviews Genetics: Technology: DNA methylation while you sequence
http://www.nature.com/nrg/journal/v11/n7/full/nrg2817.html

Interesting: There is a correlation between CpG content and mutation rate. But correlations can be tricky. 
Nature Review Genetics: Mutation: It's the CpG content that counts

http://www.nature.com/nrg/journal/v11/n7/full/nrg2820.html


Neandertal strikes. And keeps us busy most probably:
Nature Reviews Genetics: Genomics: Technical feat gives clues to human origins

http://www.nature.com/nrg/journal/v11/n7/full/nrg2821.html

Interesting. Knock out half of the genes on a diploid genome and get half of the protein content. But not always.
Nature Reviews Genetics: Functional genomics: One gene or two?http://www.nature.com/nrg/journal/v11/n7/full/nrg2816.html
