You'd Prefer An Argonaute

RNA knowledge suppliers

Posted in Lab Life, Scientific Publishing by YPAA on August 12, 2010

Collectively we cook it up in the lab; they package it up nice and then sell it back to us for a profit. An honest exchange? No, of course not, but that’s the game. Even what product of our own we could save cannot compete with all that nectar they sling, so we’re addicts.

Here’s a list of prominent suppliers. We consume a lot of their product in RNA Journal Club, as you’ve probably noticed, especially from the triangle of cartels I call the “Big Three.” You’re warned that the quality can be highly variable:

The Big Three

Cell
Nature
Science

The rest

Molecular Cell
Nature Structural and Molecular Biology (NSMB)
Nucleic Acids Research (NAR)
RNA
RNA Biology
Silence

Yeeawh, hit that #$%@.
