The film stars Johnny Depp, Rosemarie DeWitt, Danny Huston, Zoey Deutch, Ron Livingston and Odessa Young. Surely there must be more restriction enzymes with different specificities. More interesting apparatus like Bunsen burners, retorts, flasks and beakers were purchased. All seemed well until we came up with the startling finding that all late mRNAs seemed to begin with the same capped oligonucleotide, which was not encoded on the DNA next to the main body of the mRNA. The idea was to sequence the 5′-end of an mRNA, map its location on a restriction fragment, and then sequence the upstream region.
