Check out Informationaddiction for your dose of politically slanted tech news. Some interesting Biology and Genetics links up this time for your enjoyment. One of the links talks about the molecules that are probably responsible for migratory birds ability to navigate using the earths magnetic field. The link is terrible but here is a link to an article from PNAS that is much better. (and older). Apparently birds likely 'see' the magnetic field of the earth as these molecules are found in their retinas.
