Like what ciliate genomic madness has done for the discovery of telomeres (Blackburn & Gall 1978) and telomerase (Greider & Blackburn 1985)While looking at those papers, I thought "I wonder if she ever got a Nobel prize for that. The findings seem prize-worthy, and it's about time anyway."
...And then, a few hours later, I see this post on Jonathan Eisen's blog; and it turns out... they JUST won a Nobel for exactly that!
I may have a sixth sense. Or it may well be a random coincidence. Sigh, probably the latter. But I still think it's hilarious!
