Defrag my life

I am taking the week to visit my former lab in Aveiro, Portugal where I spent one year trying to understand how a codon reassignment occurred in the evolutionary past of C. albicans. This was where I first got into Perl and the wonders of comparative genomics.

It brings back a lot of memories every time I come back to one of the cities I lived in before (6 cities and counting) and I sometimes wonder if it is really necessary for scientists to live such fragmented lives.

reboot, restart, new program.

The regular programming will return soon :).
