I'll read anything Yana writes, any day of the week. Thank you for exposing her to a wider world.

On the subject of sequencing, do I understand correctly that besides the pedestrian (not to say dull) sequencing of the nuclear DNA, it is also common to sequence mRNA of a cell interrupted while it engages in identifiable activities, to help discover which genes are active at that time?

Cell biology is, indeed, the best kind of science, conducted by the best kind of scientist. Someday we will find uses for for all these activities in our descendants. Why should our phagocytes and lymphocytes be condemned to go through life without ever growing flagellae?
