  • Ribosomes Caught in the Act

    11/24/2014

    If you want to see what animals really do out in the wild, first you need to hide a camera and a trip-wire so well that the jungle seems totally undisturbed. Then, if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to catch them in the middle of the night as they pass by. Now you can surprise that tiger and find out what he is doing at that specific spot. In two companion Science articles from the Weissman... Read...
  • Better Performance for SGD’s Locus Summary Pages

    11/20/2014

      We heard from many of you about recent performance problems with SGD web pages, and we greatly appreciate your feedback.  The new features and new information recently added to SGD’s Locus Summary pages affected the performance of the web pages, particularly when viewed with the Google Chrome browser. We’ve been working very hard to implement solutions to address these issues. The fix is now in place and the pages now open and respond much more quickly.... Read...
  • Lots of Ways to Get to the Same Place

    11/13/2014

      How Bad Mutations Can Help Yeast Thrive in New Environments: If you've ever asked for directions from more than one person, you know there are many ways to get to the same place. But not all routes are created equal. You might be trying to get to the post office, but on some routes you'll pass by the zoo, while on others you might pass the museum or the bus station. Turns out that something like this... Read...
  • Finding the Right Tools for the Job

    11/06/2014

      Researchers Create a New Gene Editing Tool for Prototrophs and Diploids: If you like spending your weekends tinkering with your beautiful 1957 Ford Thunderbird that only leaves the garage on sunny days, then you probably own a set of “standard” wrenches, sized in inches.  But if you wanted to tune up the trusty 2008 Subaru that gets you to work every day, you’d be out of luck. The standard wrenches are no use and you’d need... Read...
