"Though Charles Pugsley Fincher would do well to find a stage name, his daily scribbles are nothing to scoff at. Plain and simple, on lined yellow scratch paper, yet they speak volumes." Jacob Wheeler, Utne.com.

Just having fun tonight. But the rice genome mapping story is intersting. Here is the beginning from theWashingtonPost.com :
Rice Genome Fully Mapped

Scientists have completed a genetic map of the rice plant, a scientific milestone that they hope will accelerate efforts to feed the hungry by improving the world's most important food.
Rice is the first crop plant whose complete genetic sequence, or genome, has been compiled and placed in computer data banks around the world. It will be a key tool for researchers working on improved strains of rice and other grains as they struggle to stay ahead of human population growth. A paper describing the genome is being published today in the journal Nature, and the sequence will be freely available to researchers worldwide.
