Cell has a new podcast.
June Podcast

In our third podcast appearing online on 14th June 2007, Dr Emilie Marcus talks to Dr Jonathan Weissman about exciting new technologies that are changing the research enterprise and we hear from Dr John Kuriyan about how kinases keep themselves switched off until they are needed. We also learn about some of the exciting research published in Cell in the last few months, including a study by Dr Wolf-Dieter Schubert that shows how to coax a human pathogen to invade a mouse.
