Vincent RacanielloVincent Racaniello selects several notable posts each week from molecular and cellular biology and virology. He blogs at virology blog.

  • The nucleotide sequence of the genome and transcriptome of a metastatic lobular breast cancer and was compared with that of a sample of the original tumor. The analysis reveals mutations that arose during development of the tumor.
  • Did Komodo dragons start out small and evolve large size because they were on small islands? Or were they just big from the start?
  • Tuberculosis, not cancer, killed Dr. Granville’s mummy

I’ll be back next Friday with more selections.
