Away for a bit

Off to my wife’s 50th high school reunion (classmate Jim Morrison, older matriculee — Mama Cass).  Back in a bit with the answer why big Pharma is imploding.  It’s basically what Derek Lowe has been saying — we are screwing around with a system we don’t understand fully.  The latest example of previously unsuspected cellular control mechanisms involves microRNAs, junk DNA, pseudogenes, and the difference in size between the genomes of leprosy and TB.   That’s just for openers — so rest up, see a few old friends and relax, maybe look at the Molecular Biology Survival Guide for Chemists if the terms make you feel anxious.
