In the over-airconditioned seminar room we quickly forgot about the cold while she introduced us in the world of cross-kingdom RNAi and small RNA trafficking between plants and fungal pathogens.Continue reading “Great talk about Cross-kingdom RNAi by Hailing Jin”

The realisation that I actually like reading and writing about science more than actually doing the experimentsContinue reading “Resurection number …”
