our work on variable elongation rates of RNA polymerase posted on bioRxiv pre-print

After many years of trying to publish our work on correlating variable elongation rate of RNA polymerase to exon definition and inclusion, I posted our work online. The first author was an extremely talented student, but has since left science to pursue a different career. As a result, this paper remained suspended in a third revision cycle until this week. I hope our data and analyses prove useful to others in the field. 

Seminar at SMU

I visited Southern Methodist University on January 29th to meet the biology faculty and to give a seminar. It was a great visit learning about research that is happening at this campus. I also learned that SMU colors were previously referred to as Harvard Red and Yale Blue.
