"Cancer is a genetic disease. There have been many theoretical models about the genesis of cancer that have been difficult to test experimentally. Single cell genome sequencing is the ultimate experiment. We propose to characterize the copy number and single nucleotide variations of one hundred individual cells from cancer tissues, from which we will be able to extract information regarding how genetic variations occur in real time in a solid tumor. We also plan to simultaneously determine the genome and the transcriptome of the same cell using the techniques described above. The implication of the proposed research on dynamics of the genome goes beyond cancer research and may have other broad implications to biology and medicine"

-S. Xie

Looking forward to it!

It's been on the horizon for awhile, but soon we're going to be confronted with these payment issues

Hopefully this will lead to population-scale, longitudinal data that will allow us to detect the early, pre-symptomatic stages of disease---transforming medicine into a more predictive, rather than reactionary, process.

Not feasible, but interesting idea: what if combustion products were colored in real life?

How fast will the transition to highly-distributed energy generation & storage be?  If the Tesla+SolarCity collaboration is any indication, it will be quicker than most people expect---and utilities will need to figure out how to adapt.

Admittedly, the list of Michelin star restaurants I've dined at isn't the most extensive. Aziza, Quince, & Spruce are some of the more memorable ones that come to mind. However, even with that small list to compare to, La Folie struggles to keep up with its peer class. Don't get me wrong - the food is excellent, with attention to detail and good service, but just not world-class. One thing I did discover is that I don't particular care for foie gras (too rich), which should ease my conscience a bit in the future since I won't be ordering it. So I won't hold that against La Folie. On the other hand, the Lobster & Mushroom Risotto wasn't strong, nor was the Lamb rack. The chef offered us a complimentary dessert, which was generous, except when put in the context of the final bill. Even by San Francisco standards this is a restaurant that you'll likely want to reserve for special occasions. Except for the fact that's there's many other more deserving restaurants that should be ahead of it in line.

Come here every year for my buddy's birthday. And the place grows on me each time. Really good tapas -- squid was the highlight of my most recent visit. Great Sangria too. The Dali "paintings" on the walls, which I just noticed this time around, are the finishing touch.

While you're still standing in line at Mama's, I'm finishing off my Eggs Benedict. And Pat knows hollandaise sauce (even better than Bo). Great neighborhood spot, although you'll be sharing with the tourists (they're wearing shorts, easy to spot, and shouldn't bite unless provoked). Nice jazz selections on Sun and options for big or small groups. Clearly, this ain't Pat's first rodeo.

Clean, no frills, good selection (with plenty of 10 oz taster options). A beer drinker's Nirvana.

"Not the best I've ever had" says Gary (don't worry, he's Asian). On the other hand, I thought the egg tart and pork bun were pretty good.
