I should like to offer my hearty congratulations to Zoe T. Richards, Madeleine J. H. van Oppen, Carden C. Wallace, Bette L. Willis and David J. Miller for coming up with by far and away the most comprehensible title for a scientific paper published on the excellent PLoS ONE website recently, namely: Some Rare Indo-Pacific Coral Species Are Probable Hybrids. I haven't read their paper, but at least I know what it's about. Or I think I do.
More intelligent minds than mine might be interested in other recent PLoS ONE papers with slightly more cryptic yet less snappy titles, including:
- Analysis of Area-Specific Expression Patterns of RORbeta, ER81 and Nurr1 mRNAs in Rat Neocortex by Double In Situ Hybridization and Cortical Box Method
- In Situ Observation of Modulated Light Emission of Fiber Fuse Synchronized with Void Train over Hetero-Core Splice Point
- Genetic Analysis of the Role of Protein Kinase C? in Platelet Function and Thrombus Formation
- Single-Species Microarrays and Comparative Transcriptomics
- Proteolysis of proBDNF Is a Key Regulator in the Formation of Memory
(I'm going for a lie down.)
