uppercut to the arsenic-life paper - Rosie's preprint
YEAH... in the middle of a controversial media fight against SOPA, PIPA, ACTA & others acts "against" piracy and copyright info's sharing. Rosie Redfield show us that PEER-REVIEW CAN BE PUBLIC, just two days ago the arsenic-life manuscript of Rosie's team was submitted to Science, reporting the lack of arsenate in the DNA of arsenate-grown GFAJ-1 cells, now this pre-print is available on the arXiv server at http://arxiv.org/abs/1201.6643.
Critical commentaries alredy started, so I'd like to see a good discussion about this in our lab, starting from here.
<-- i made this pic, with all my respect to Rosie Redfield & their team.
