Tips: 1. calling their DC office is the most efficient, it's very quick. But any way is better than nada. 2. Stories! They use stories of their people so if you have one and are willing, tell them! 3. Call everyday! plz RT

The phenomenon, termed initially posttranscriptional gene silencing (PTGS), was first noted in plants & fungi. Fire & Mello discovered that this was not just a curiosity of non-animals, and made the important observation that dsRNA was involved. The rest is history.

Since I started as faculty, we have been through a few format changes at NSF ("old" system, pre-proposals, and now this one). All driven by the recession, the sequester, and other issues. Ultimately we need to improve the funding of US science to resolve the fundamental problem.

What do we need to do next? Herbicide resistance is a great system to study phenotypic convergence

Tradeoffs happen... Resistance to pesticides generally Causes higher sensitivity to herbivory, pathogens, pests

Some systems where we have seen that lower cost allelic replacements replace alleles that show fitness costs for pesticide resistance

Last up Before WW2, Few cases of pesticide resistance in nature Organisms can easily evolve resistance to xenobiotics that kill them

This isn't the general call though...just OPUS? (I'm confused, I think this is limited to OPUS)

Dear editors, The choice to run this editorial demonstrates that you are not worthy of the institution you are stewarding. This himpathic, ahistorical, supremacist drivel is exactly what institutional narcissism looks like. Shame.
