BioRXiv has launched! It's the preprint server for biologists, just like physicists have used at arXiv for years. 
News story by Nature attached. Come check it out at biorxiv.org.

Thanks to Marnie Gelbart and everyone who came to the 2013 GETEd meeting, our conference report is now out in the journal Personalized Medicine: "Conference Scene: Accelerating public awareness in the age of personal genetics." http://www.futuremedicine.com/doi/pdf/10.2217/pme.13.58. It's got tons of resources for genetics education and communication!

You know this already, I am guessing, but you have about 23 hours from now to submit your ASHG2013 meeting abstract.
Deadline is 8pm Eastern time on Tuesday June 4.

Two great recent posts from writers on +Double X Science :

Will we ever have a malaria vaccine? Good update on recent papers and advances: http://www.doublexscience.org/will-ever-effective-malaria-vaccine/

Of CRISPR/Cas and basic research:  Jeff Perkel explains the new system for making genomic changes, and extols the unexpected discovery which can come from basic research. http://www.doublexscience.org/crisprcas-basic-research/

For first time since 9/11, F-16 pilot talks about plan to ram the fourth plane before it could hit DC. Amazing.

Yes, it should have been rammed with an f-16 instead of just shut down or shot down,. or forced down.

WTF was going on in the decision making process?

Some good stories on +Double X Science this week:
--My friend +Steven Salzberg writing on a recent Dr. Oz program with scaremongering about mercury fillings, and why the science presented was not valid:
http://www.doublexscience.org/dr-oz-is-worried-about-your-teeth-should-you-worry-too/
--+Jeffrey Perkel on the science behind recurrent UTIs and very mobile bacteria:
http://www.doublexscience.org/of-utis-and-bacterial-fitness/
--+Matthew Francis with a fun column on Einstein and whether or not he ever actually wrote E=mc2.
