  • The Human Genome Project is the world's largest collaborative science project. Everyone and their monkey has published a map of the yeast interactome. Who will speak for the poor old Human Interactome? At least one scientist, Marc Vidal, is calling for a collaborative Human Interactome project.
  • Michael Stebbins, a former senior editor at Nature Genetics, congressional advisor, and Cold Spring Harbor-resident researcher just put out an interesting-looking book, Sex, Drugs and DNA, on controversy and politics in current biological research. He's running a website and blog as part of a self-declared "campaign to get rid of elected officials that have done something egregious in health or science policy". The website also has a hitlist of American politicians to be "eliminated". Ha. Lots of ID proponents on the list as you might imagine.
