On my desk today? A report that uses RNAi to study an aspect of RNA biology--in this case, knockdown of specific exosome factors followed by genome-wide analysis of mRNAs is used to gain insight into exosome functions.
Kiss & Andrulis (2010) Genome-wide analysis reveals distinct substrate specificities of Rrp6, Dis3, and core exosome subunits. RNA 16: 781-791. doi: 10.1261/rna.1906710

... it is the small or minute organisms, or small cellular elements of larger organisms, whose forms will be governed by surface-tension; while the forms of the larger organisms are due to other and non-molecular forces.
from Sir D'Arcy Thompson, On Growth and Form (Abridged Edition, Cambridge University Press, 1961).
