I recently wrote a blog post for Canadian Science Publishing about a recent review published in the Canadian Journal of Microbiology. The review from Davis et al. summarizes recent findings on the function of the sigma factor. A key component of bacterial transcription machinery – the stuff that turns DNA into RNA (hellooooo central dogma).

As for this blog, don’t worry, more content is on its way soon!
