Ignoti, sed non occulti.
- This week, at The Molecular Ecologist: The evolution of the insect immune system, the vital importance of genetics for habitat restoration, how to make admixture maps in R, and reproductive isolation in chickadees.
- And, at Nothing in Biology Makes Sense! A whole-body microbial map.
- Hope, restored. President Obama made a big new climate-change deal with China.
- Infuriating injustice. In many states the law treats fetuses as more valuable than the women carrying them.
- No, but really. The Minneapolis police union claims the mayor threw a gang sign; Mayor Hodges responds with snark and steel.
- From the front lines. How the Republican war on science funding is hurting the natural world.
- Cool. A map of the Africa that might have been.
- Food for thought. Another great personal perspective on PreP.
- Uh-oh. Does Bill Nye’s science advocacy end at crop improvement?
- The loss of collections is the loss of data. The troubling decline of taxonomic collections.
- Of course. The bacterium whose presence in your gut is most strongly determined by genetics is barely understood.
- One giant leap for mankind, one step backward. The success of a European mission to put a robot on a comet is marred by a mission rep’s sexist clothing choice. Update: He’s given an unforced, heartfelt apology.
- Going to come in handy later, I hope. Tips on writing a recommendation letter.
