A slipped-CAG DNA-binding small molecule induces trinucleotide-repeat contractions in vivo 

Tagmentation of DNA/RNA hybrids! 

published a column about reading or replying to on weekends (nature.com/articles/d41586-020). In the past years, I started to follow a policy of not sending emails outside business hours (although this gives challenges for intercontinental communications). If I write a reply on weekends, I wait for Monday morning before sending it.

Press releases should report scientific results in a humble way: a reminder in the journal EMBO reports. embopress.org/doi/full/10.1525

Our latest work on the in animals is now on-line in . In brief, we checked that the genetic code already described in ascidian mitochondria could be the same as for the last common ancestor of all tunicates, and found that in a subset of tunicates, the genetic code of mitochondria might have evolved later. biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/86

I often heard that Python is great because in this language, “there is only one way to do it”, which means more readable etc. So I am trying to learn it. Today I read the changelog of Python 3.8, and found the walrus operator and the equal specifier for f-strings, and I feel at home like in the good old days with Perl :)

Biodegradation of waste PET: A sustainable solution for dealing with plastic pollution. 

Ranting again on about authors who publish improvements of our method that are very similar to some of our own improvements that we already published to years ago, without giving us proper credit. pubpeer.com/publications/35AD2
