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.

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!

+Double X Science got a makeover today, so check it out and feel free to sign up for email updates! Thanks to the NASW for their grant, and to +Emily Willingham for overseeing it all.
