What are you reading?

Today I'm reading the following:
A widely distributed bacterial pathway for siderophore biosynthesis independent of nonribosomal peptide synthetases.
by: Gregory L. Challis

There is no abstract for this article (published in ChemBioChem). As you can surmise from the title though, it deals with iron acquisition and siderophore biosynthesis. I have a side-project I am working on in which I'm taking some techniques I used in graduate school, studying pathogens, and employing them in the area of soil microbial ecology. We'll see, eventually, how successful I am. I'm doing all the DNA preps now.

It was very interesting for me to read that blog. Thanks the author for it. I like such topics and anything connected to them. BTW, try to add some pics :).
