Trio Cleonice, why so rushed in the Andante movement??  This is a ponderous piece.  The tempo makes the middle section sign out (~18:00-on), but that is missing the point of this deeply thoughtful movement.  I just don't see the cellist Gwen Krosnick smiling at 21:00 as in sync with the music.  A major mistake of interpretation, in my opinion.

Great article by Carl Zimmer from NY Times on future of cancer research at NY Genome Center
Once you decode a tumor’s genome, what’s next? Oncologists hope that IBM’s Watson will help them find drugs for patients’ particular brain cancer mix.

Great article by Ben Fidler re NY Genome Center opening http://tinyurl.com/l2js5dx; best part--chance to acknowledge founding role of Tom Maniatis "Maniatis, the conceptual founder, and chairman of the NYGC’s scientific and clinical steering committee."   Hate to be picky but new center is 170,000 sq ft, not 30,000!  (~15,800 sq meters?).  Finally thanks  to MIke Bloomberg for coming & his advice "don't screw it up"... Amen

Great short but snappy video of the opening events at the NY Genome Center.  An awesome day for all of us trying to transform medicine with genomics! http://www.nygenome.org/news/new-york-genome-center-opening-video/

Formal: 
Robert B. Darnell, M.D., Ph.D., is the Robert and Harriet Heilbrunn Professor of Cancer Biology at Rockefeller University in New York City and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Center. In November 2012 he was named President and Scientific Director of the NY Genome Center. His is also an active physician, both as Director for Science Programs at the Center for Clinical and Translational Research for the Rockefeller University Hospital, where he is Senior Physician, and at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NY, where he is an adjunct Attending Neuro-Oncologist. Dr. Darnell is a leading expert in the study of paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes, rare disorders triggered by an immune system response to common cancers. His patient-oriented studies led him to discover that neurons have unique mechanisms governing the regulation of RNA, the transcribed copies of our genes.  He went on to pioneer the development of HITS-CLIP, a method to study RNA regulation in intact cells and tissues, now a gold standard being widely applied in neurobiology, cancer biology, immunology and virology, and to explore the “dark matter” of the human genome.  In 2010, Dr. Darnell was elected member of the Institute of Medicine, member of the Association of American Physicians and Fellow of the AAAS. Dr. Darnell currently serves on the Board of Scientific Councilors of the Jackson Laboratory and the NINDS Advisory Council, and among numerous awards, in 2012 received an NIH Directors Transformative Research Award.
