My retirement continues to provide the opportunity to attend a number of national Genetics conferences and reconnect with many colleagues and collaborators around the country. The focus of my ongoing research is the maintenance of a unique online resource, The Ribosomal Mutation Database (ribosome.fandm.edu), which has served the RNA community since 1994. Dr. Robin Gutell from the University of Texas at Austin and I are currently planning the merger of my database with his by 2020. My 21st annual Summer Visiting Investigator appointment at the Jackson Lab in Maine brought my work there to its completion. My final summer at the Jackson Lab was also highlighted by my induction into the prestigious Jackson Society of donors. I could not have planned a better pairing of landmark events! As always, I look forward to hearing from students who remember me.
