Scientists have discovered two viruses that are "twice as large as the previous record-holders and may represent a completely new life form". Does this make you...
I heard, not saw in National Geographic, that a ridiculous amount of new viruses are created and destroyed near the equator everyday.
Great, now my 150 dollar textbook is worthless!
Just kidding, that's pretty awesome.
Side note, have either of you two read about the cancer researcher @ Stanford who Made headlines this week?
I haven't - what's up? I've actually been close to news-free this week; haven't even looked at my science newsletter things for at least that long.
Wait, what just happened to your user name? That was sneaky! But I see what you did with your location.
They are approved for human trails 2014 for something that eliminates the protein that prevents identification of C cells. I was just wondering if you have a perspective on it. Is it as exciting as it sounds?
Yea no-one thought my last name was funny but me, and I think this one semi-conveys my research interests.
I'll have to look into it; thanks for mentioning it.
I like the new name. Didn't dislike the old one, but I saw you being razzed about it.
Those trials sound really cool, do you have a specific website you read about it on?
I have heard the NY post has credibility issues. Do you think this is reliable info?
I found the paper the article was referring to on Stanford's website, so we at least know that part's legit. m.pnas.org/content/110/27/11103.long?view=long&pmid=23690610
Maybe Susan can help translate that?
