RNA-Seq uses deep-sequencing techniques to profile the transcriptome. Researchers report that this methodology leads to precise measurements of transcript levels and their isoforms. [Gunilla Elam/Science Source]

Using RNA-seq and other approaches, researchers are making strides in the field of transcriptomics.

Biogenesis and functions of circular RNAs. (A) A gene can be transcribed and spliced into linear and circular RNAs. Note the unique ‘head-to-tail’ splice junctions formed by an acceptor splice site at the 5′ end of an exon and a donor site at the 3′ end of a downstream exon. A demonstrated role for circRNAs is to act as a microRNA sponge. (B) Pictograms of additional plausible options for circRNA function. Source: The EMBO Journal

The public perception of science vs. reality, as told in rage comics. Yup, that's about right.

Scientific Process Rage

Funny comic - public perception of science vs. (I wish reality was like the public perception, then I wouldn't have had a week like I just did.

Diatoms are microscopic algae composed of separate halves, with delicate siliceous cell walls.

Diatoms are microscopic algae composed of separate halves, with delicate siliceous cell walls. They're usually single-celled organisms, though some live colonially. They inhabit fresh and salt waters and are among the most abundant of all phytoplankton.

The Vesicular Stomatitis Virus is an important pathogenic virus of cattle, causing fever and vesicles in the mouth and on the feet. These negatively stained virions are bullet-shaped like the Rabies Virus.

Not sure what’s got you sick? Use this chart to find out if antibiotics will help.  Antibiotics will not kill viruses. I avoid antibiotics as much as possible. Oregano Oil is far better and also works for viruses.
