The fly genome in 3D

A fantastic paper from Giacomo Cavalli’s lab – a whole genome Hi-C map of the fly genome develops a model of the way the fly genome is partitioned into regulatory domains in the nucleus.  This is a technical tour-de-force that provides a basis for exploring how the genome is partitioned into active and inactive domains in the 3D space of the nucleus.

Creosote & Hopkins

Kenny Anderson (AKA King Creosote) & Jon Hopkins performed their sublime Diamond Mine record at J2 last night, spellbinding (apart from the twats with the loud clicky cameras who had to be restrained).  If you haven’t heard this record, you should check it out.


Feliĉan novan jaron

Esperanto for Happy New Year.  

New music added to the music server for 2012 includes Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Head and The Heart, Eli “Paperboy” Reed, Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross (Girl with Dragon Tattoo soundtrack, film was not to bad for Hollywood, could have been soooo much worse), which includes a splendid version of Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song.  Also, for the nostalgic or frankly elderly easy listening fans amongst you……60 classic tracks from Glen Campbell (I had a burning desire to hear Wichita Lineman over the festive season).
