~ Intermission ~
This isn’t necessarily the final post for You’d Prefer An Argonaute, but I’m calling an intermission, or hitting the standby button perhaps.
While I’ve thoroughly enjoyed running the blog the past three years, other priorities have taken hold of me, and the blog is getting sleepy, so to speak.
There haven’t been contributions to the RNA Journal Club posts for quite a while. When even I didn’t find the time to do one for my last presentation, it got harder for me to in fair conscience ask others to still contribute. I don’t see a point in continuing to post the papers weekly now that there are no more reviews.
I am extremely grateful to the following people who did contribute: Vikram Agarwal, Josh Arribere, Graeme Doran, Anna Drinnenberg, Robin Friedman, Huili Guo, Allan Gurtan, Mohini Jangi, Carla Klattenhoff, David Koppstein, Madhu Kumar, Charles Lin, Joel Neilson, Michael Nodine, Alex Robertson, Jenny Rood, Noah Spies, Alex Subtelny, Igor Ulitsky, Pavan Vaidyanathan, David Weinberg, Josien van Wolfswinkel, Xuebing Wu, and Muhammed Yildirim.
Pretty much all these people are going to be successful P.I.’s/scientists one day. There’s a significant correlation I tell you!
I hope to still post periodically, things like the annual lists of RNA conferences I compile. And maybe the blog will get its second wind during my postdoc… we’ll see. In the meantime don’t fret about the site disappearing from the web, however, the URL could change if I get sick of paying rent on the domain.
Sometimes I feel like I’ve been writing for an alien audience, because I’ve had practically no contact with viewers. Who and what are you? Spam drones? Bored teenagers?
Well, to the curious, nerdy aliens who landed here for knowledge or laughs, thanks for reading, and stay true in your science.
