One RNA to bind them all?

The Boston Globe has a long piece titled DNA unraveled. With the subtitle like “A ‘scientific revolution’ is taking place, as researchers explore the genomic jungle” you know what to except, lots of adjectives and a healthy dollop of hyperbole. I guess I lean toward the side of the conservatives in the article, but ultimately it doesn’t matter, nature always has the last laugh.
Update: Eye on DNA has a more thorough comment on this article and many others in the latest round up. Always worth checking out!

    Never trust anyone who says “smoking gun”.
    I liked the Weng quote at the end though.
