He writes about viruses at <a href=”http://www.virology.ws” target=”_blank”>virology blog</a>.
  • Dr. Mehmet Oz is one of America’s most influential doctors (and my colleague here at Columbia). But proclaiming that diabetes can be treated with heavy consumption of coffee and vinegar seems bizarre as it is not supported by epidemiological studies.
  • The protist Gromia comprises a sizeable grape-like blob of a test surrounded by a mass of fine pseudopodia. They inhabit both deep and shallow waters, and are known to have sex. Upon conjugation, flagellated gametes are exchanged between the parents, producing amoeboid diploid swarmers that ultimately form a new test and complete the cycle.
  • The proteins of viruses that encounter multiple hosts – such as dengue virus, which is vectored by mosquitoes among primates, must interact with diverse cellular proteins. Mapping this ‘interactome’ by computational approaches provides a springboard for experimental validation and exploration.

I’ll be back next Friday with more selections.
