The new job is going really well so far. I feel as if I’ve been genuinely useful in my first week, which included an important postdoctoral fellowship application deadline. It’s been very intense though, which caused the inevitable dreams to start ahead of schedule, and I’ve been reading a LOT of research papers. In fact, if I tried to read another full paper this weekend I think my head would explode. This week’s Journal Club will therefore consist of some of the more eye-catching paper titles I’ve read this week.
Widespread Morning Drizzle on Titan by Máté Ádámkovics and colleagues from the University of California, Berkeley.
So it’s not just Vancouver then.
A pair of complementary papers in Current Biology:
Salvador-Warts-Hippo Signaling Promotes Drosophila Posterior Follicle Cell Maturation Downstream of Notch by Cédric Polesello and Nicolas Tapon at the Cancer Research UK’s London Research Institute
The Salvador-Warts-Hippo Pathway Is Required for Epithelial Proliferation and Axis Specification in Drosophila by Carine Meignin and colleagues at the Universities of Edinburgh and Cambridge.
Well, that’s your lot for today. I have a whole bunch of cool endogenous retrovirus papers to read, and hopefully I’ll at least make it through the abstracts in time for next week’s post.
