RNA Journal Club Classic
Cleaning out my drawer yesterday, I dug up the papers I presented in RNA Journal Club prior to the birth of YPAA. So for posterity’s sake:
Noam Stern-Ginossar, Naama Elefant, Albert Zimmermann, Dana G. Wolf, Nivin Saleh, Moshe Biton, Elad Horwitz, Zafnat Prokocimer, Mark Prichard, Gabriele Hahn, Debra Goldman-Wohl, Caryn Greenfield, Simcha Yagel, Hartmut Hengel, Yael Altuvia, Hanah Margalit, Ofer Mandelboim
Science Vol. 317 no. 5836, pp. 376-381, 20 July 2007.
They named their algorithm “Reptar”, in obvious reference to the Rugrats character.

PLoS Biology | Volume 6 | Issue 2 | e27 | February 2008.
Oh man, I don’t know what I was thinking in doing this paper. In trying to escape the endless Nature/Science/Cell journal club rut, I landed in this fine PLoS paper–this fine 24-page, 15 main-text figure (+12 Sup Fig), ~12,000-word PLoS paper.
Monika Martick, Lucas H. Horan, Harry F. Noller & William G. Scott

Ribozymes will always be the coolest RNAs out there, ‘specially hammerheads up in ur 3’UTRses!!
