Microcosm: E.coli and the New Science of Life AND a science reading challenge!

Hi all,

Trying valiantly not to catch that horrible virus going around! And, someone should have stopped me on the street today.  I bought a 500ml bottle of isopropanol AND a pack of matches from the Chem Storeroom today.  Hmm...really, I wasn't thinking I wanted to set something on fire, but deep, deep down, maybe I'm just tired of the cold weather. In actuality, just merely a coincidence that I need both items at the same time, but NOT for use together, I promise.

I've posted a new book review of Microcosm, which has just been the hardest one for me to get around to, I think because it is my field, despite the fact that I don't want ANY bacteria near my mammalian cell cultures.  (I love when I as someone if they know how to do cell culture and they say "Well, I can do bacterial cultures."  No, not the same at all....bacterial cultures, we want bacteria to live....mammalian culture, no bacteria allowed!)

 Back to the original thought.  It was just so difficult to try to convey the immenseness of importance of E. coli's role in the development of the field of biology that Carl Zimmer captures that had me stumped. Here's what I came up with!

 



I found a science reading challenge!  Go here and sign up!  I know you will read some science books anyway! Whew!  I need to go get some rest so I can keep healthy. 

Until next time,

Kindly, Joanne
