Online Now: September 2014 issue of ASBMB Today
The September issue is chock-full of great reads! It marks the launch of an exciting series of articles about people who were trained in science but who have made their livings (and sometimes fortunes) in totally different professions. First up: punks who publish! In the second column of his presidency, Steve McKnight gives you his take on why the review process isn't what it should be. You'll notice we have included a number of obituaries for ASBMB members this month. One is about Roy P. Mackal, who chose a very different path than most biochemists. Lastly, we close out our Open Letters series with a piece by Kelly Hallstrom, who has some advice for the most recent cohort of graduate students. Read the September issue

they have put PLD at center stage in cancer research, as outlined in
this Journal of Biological Chemistry minireview series organized by
Julian Gomez-Cambronero and George M. Carman.
