This blog break has been a little longer than I anticipated, but I plan on getting back to some more science posts this week. Our twins were born January 8, I turned in the final, corrected copy of my doctoral thesis on January 16th (my defense was in December), we packed up our stuff and left NY with a Penske truck on January 26th, and finally arrived at our new home in St. Louis on January 28th. I started my postdoc position at the Center for Genome Sciences at the Wash. U. School of Medicine on Feb. 1.
Now that our family's recovered a bit from that last insane month, it's time to get back to some of the interesting things that are going on in biology. The next installment on the dog genome should be up by Thursday.
