Tangled Bank #61 on Epigenetic News


The 61st issue of Tangled Bank, a carnival of science blogs, is hosted at Epigenetic News.

a bacteriophage spray that can help kill bacteria that contaminates processed lunch meat
a genetically engineered tomato that could help reduce risk of contracting heart disease

“last possible ‘rational’ reason for opposing stem cell research has been removed”, discussing a news report also mentioned here in the Biotech Weblog

a new map of nuclear receptors and its potential for aiding research in circadian regulation of body functions
