Default Ode to the Ďtode and the Gene Jockeys

In 2002, the Yeast Genetics Course members sang this song to the participants of both the C.elegans Course and the Eukaryotic Gene Expression Course...

The song is set to the tune of "Sail Away Ladies"

Ode to the Ďtode and the Gene Jockeys


Come on Nematodes donít you cry,
Nematodes, nematodes donít you cry

Things will be better by and by
Nematodes, nematodes donít you cry


Chorus:

Saccharomyces cerevisiae,
Saccharomyces cerevisiae
We do genetics perfectly
Weíre everything you wanna be

Weíve got plasmids by the score,
Nematodes, nematodes donít you cry

Centromeres, telomeres and much much more
Nematodes, nematodes donít you cry


Chorus

We knock out genes one by one,
Nematodes, nematodes donít you cry

We got the entire genome done
Nematodes, nematodes donít you cry


Chorus

Hey there Gene Expression how about you?
Gene Expression Gene Expression donít you cry
Weíre much better than you too
Gene Expression Gene Expression donít you cry

Chorus

We donít use p32
Gene Expression Gene Expression donít you cry
Weíre not mutant, how about you?
Gene Expression Gene Expression donít you cry

Chorus


We knock out genes and say bye bye,
Nematodes and Gene Expression donít you cry

None of that goddamn RNAi
Nematodes and Gene Expression donít you cry


Chorus

Nematodes and Gene Expression Donít you cry
Nematodes, and Gene Expression donít you cry

Youíll get better by and by
Nematodes and Gene Expression donít you cry


Chorus
Chorus
