Michel et al., the paper on Science Express today that mined Google Books to draw trends of word use in the English language over the last 200 years, from published books.

There’s no data post-2000, but cell and micro-biology are clearly declining in the genome era, where lazy computational biologists eat pizza and ice cream all day.

But why didn’t they plot “RNA”? It’s got to register at least as good as sushi did.

      Wow, that’s cool. Thanks Igor.

      Why did RNA peak 25 years before DNA?? No wonder whenever a non-scientist asks me what I do I have to describe RNA with reference to DNA.
