The best description of synthetic lethality was given by Dr. Jon Jarvik
in an adv. genetics class during my first year in grad school. He said
(and I paraphrase) that synthetic lethality was like a 'C' in a class in
grad school-- get one in any class and you're OK, get two and you're

(we can only get one 'C' as grad students, more than that and we are out
of the program)


Still a grad student, no Cs :)

P.S. Give a good talk Morrie!
