Chapters:

0:00 Venter steps in it

8:33 Good news for RNAi

14:35 Science of the month picks

To honor Laura's pentametric thirst,

We write the summary today in verse.

 

Was it a quake that had no epicenter,

That silly paper out by J. Craig Venter?

 

And after years of silencing the market

Has RNAi at last knocked out its target?

 

Then Nathan gives to yuppies devil's choice.

Which one libs: gluten dough or GMOs?
