The New Mol Biol Carnival is out

The new Carnival of Molecular Biology is out hosted by The Ocelloid. It calls itself number 18, but I think secretly it’s number 19. The post I submitted has been favourably commented on by Mauro Mandioli of the The Aphid Room, and I’d like to take this opportunity to say that his carnival post on karyotype variation in aphids is fascinating. Apparently, chromosome number within a clonal population of the peach potato aphid, can vary between sister individuals, and even within individual embryos. I look forward to finding out more on aphid molecular biology from his blog.


Mol Bio Carnival #18

A new edition of the molecular biology carnival ushers in the new year, hosted by Chimeras. It includes links to all sorts of brilliant articles with a healthy dose of microbiology and virology.
