This online seminar demonstrates how RNA-seq analysis in a model organism can provide insights into human disease. 

In this webinar, Dr. Julian Ceron of the Bellvitge Institut for Biomedical Research in Barcelona, Spain, presents a system to model retinitis pigmentosa in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans using RNA sequencing data.

Robert Redfield is floated as the next director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Washington Post reports.

The New York Times writes that the National Institutes of Health's All of Us Research Program is "ambitious" and that some are concerned it might be overly so.

Representative Lamar Smith's criticism of the National Science Foundation has "changed the nature of the conversation," according to ScienceInsider.

In PLOS this week: non-coding RNA function in yeast, transcriptomic profiles of malaria parasites, and more.
