If Genome Biology had been launched today, instead of 11 years ago, it might well have been given the alternative title of " Transcriptome Biology ". While Genome Biology captured the millennial zeitgeist of genomics brought about by the project(s) to sequence the human genome, the breathtaking progress of this field in the intervening decade has brought us to a new frontier: the transcriptome. The development of RNA-seq, which applies high-throughput next-generation sequencing technology to cDNA generated from RNA samples, has resulted in an explosion of transcriptome sequences.
Breathe easy, tokers. Smoking marijuana in moderate amounts may not be so bad for your lungs, after all. A new study, published in this month's Journal of the American Medical Association , tested the lung function of over 5,000 young adults between 18 and 30 to determine marijuana's effect on lungs. After 20 years of testing, researchers found some buzzworthy results: regular marijuana smokers (defined by up to a joint a day for seven years) had no discernable impairment in lung activity from non-smokers.

Coffee, over-the-counter drugs and cold showers are hangover cures of the past -- but experts say smoking marijuana may become the newest remedy for binge-drinking college students. A University of California, San Diego study suggests marijuana may protect the brain from some of the damage caused by binge drinking, though its results face some contention from experts. James Strauss, a senior lecturer in anatomy and physiology at Penn State, said the idea that marijuana is safer than alcohol is a "real stretch." In reality, he said, the study's most important findings were that the best way to protect the brain from damage is to not smoke or binge drink.
