DailyDirt: Biotech On Bugs

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Bio-engineering is making some serious progress. It seems like the more we learn about biology, the more we can use biology to help solve all kinds of problems that you wouldn’t necessarily think would be related to biology. Here are just a few cool examples of biology research that sound like they could serve mankind (and hopefully not in the “cookbook” sense).

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

One small step for man, one giant leap for yeast: multicellularity!

work but this link on their own website:

Not so simple: Gulping bugs with the nuclear option

throws up some sort of paywall login prompt instead of the promised article? Not only bait-and-switch links but inconsistent, too!

Please don’t link to this site anymore if it continues this sort of behavior. If they dislike our traffic that much that they’ll throw up gratuitous obstacles to anyone that browses around after landing there, then let’s not refer them any more.
