The Ribosome's 30S Subunit Comes into Focus

For this article, Laura DeFrancesco interviewed Venki Ramakrishnan, group leader, Structural Studies Division, Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology, UK; and William Clemons, postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School. Data derived from the Science Watch/Hot Papers database and the Web of Science (ISI, Philadelphia) show that Hot Papers are cited 50 to 100 times more often than the average paper of the same type and age.
