Smallest. Genome. Ever.

I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again:

The best way to get your paper into a high profile journal like Science or Nature is to find the biggest of something, the smallest of something, or something that fucks funny.

This paper further supports my point.

    I’ve been trying to track down a copy of the actual genome itself, but I’m too much of an amateur. Any idea where I’d find it?

    It should end up at NCBI Genomes – might take a month or two for them to process it.

    Ah yes, the “quirkiness” factor. A friend of mine works in a social insect lab. No problem getting into Science there. Science loves strange bee behaviours.
