Horizontal transfer is very near and dear to my heart, since I worked on a bacterial self-mobilizing pathogenicity plasmid for years. This post by Conspiracy Factor on the uptake of DNA by higher organisms was an eye-opener to me. Exciting stuff.
I am a mother of three kids, a wife, a post-doctoral scientist, carpenter, cleaning lady, gardener, electrician, and probably a few other things that are required to keep my household running. This blog is about my adventures in life, and an outlet for my thoughts.
