  1. Hey Sam,

    I am looking forward to your report about the GRC meeting. I have heard some gosspip about a very “interesting” motor session…

Maybe there’s an alternative explanation here (admittedly, I did not read all the supplemental section online); please correct me. Otherwise, I’m bummed with this data right now. *Some background that I know on the authors:Andrew Carter: I met him at the GRC on single-molecule biophysics, and really liked him. Really funny guy. He did neat work in the Vale lab on sliding assays (microscopy of labeled microtublules sliding around like little worms on a bed of dynein motor heads).Ahmet Yildiz: Did the FIONA work in the Selvin lab for his graduate work.
