And this one is just so over the top in terms of overselling I do not know where to begin. First, they had me at the title
Duckweed genome sequencing has global implicationsBut the subtitle is even better
Pond scum can undo pollution, fight global warming and alleviate world hungerThere is really little else to say. I commend the JGI and DOE for supporting this work as it sounds reasonable and work on this organism may have many uses. But, umm, this was the most obvious "Overselling genomics award" I have ever given.
