Rosie Redfield on 'Arsenic life'

This one is for the Rosie Redfield fans. (I know you’re out there!)

Those who want a concise take on the ‘arsenic life’ story will like it too.

Not really related, but for some reason spurred on by Redfield’s remark that she has no idea what is in ‘that’ tube, I can recommend Jennifer Rohn’s excellent article In which I sort it out and the comments that follow, mostly about scrounging to make the lab run.


Excuse the continued ‘lite’ posts–I’m deep in reading & writing for work. Hopefully they’re entertaining enough to keep you going! I hope to get back to writing original material and to offering things closer to my own research interests soon.
