APOD: Perseid Meteors Over Ontario (2013 Aug 13) Image Credit & Copyright: Darryl Van Gaal; Annotation: Judy Schmidt http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130813.html Explanation: Where are all of these meteors coming from? In terms of direction on the sky, the pointed answer is the constellation of Perseus. That is why the meteor shower that peaked over the past few days is known as the Perseids -- the meteors all appear to come from a radiant toward Perseus. Three dimensionally, however, sand-sized debris expelled from Comet Swift-Tuttle follows a well-defined orbit about our Sun, and the part of the orbit that approaches Earth is superposed in front of the Perseus. Therefore, when Earth crosses this orbit, the radiant point of falling debris appears in Perseus. Pictured above, a composite of 13 early images from this year's Pereids meteor shower shows many bright meteors that streaked through the sky the night of August 11 near Oakland, Ontario, Canada. http://darkclearskies.blogspot.com/ http://www.geckzilla.com/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130813 #APOD

Not all reverse transcriptases (RTs) are created equal -- to obtain higher yields of full-length cDNA, the RNase H activity must be removed because it competes with polymerase activity for the RNA template/DNA primer hybrid. The higher temperature (RT that is stable at 50oC) allows resolution of RNA folds and less specific binding of primer to RNA template. Click here for more details: http://bit.ly/19cgOHW
