I occasionally stumble across these gems of research which have remained hidden away in obscurity (from me, at least) for a few years. Sometimes, they are thrown at me and I only realize how interesting they are after I read another, related paper and then I feel like I playing catch and suddenly, while watching a bird fly overhead, I forget to catch the ball and am left wondering why my head suddenly hurts. I pretty much try to read everything I can on reptiles and amphibians (if you stumble across a paper relating to one of these, send it this way; if I don’t have it, I can add it to my ever-growing collection) as well as things relating to genetic expression (please don’t send me these, I have enough to keep up with in the genetics area to keep me busy for three lifetimes). I have tons of papers I want to write about, and tons I want to discuss, but I so frequently get distracted that I forget to share them. So, here is a short list of papers I will, hopefully, at some point, get to discussing. Most of them are free, so feel free to peruse them at your own leisure.
