More Link Laziness

I feel a little guilty doing this, but oh well.

  • Science has an interesting online feature about mathematics in biology. I especially liked the Bialek and Botstein article (Introductory Science and Mathematics Education for 21st-Century Biologists), which points out the deficiencies in biology curricula at most schools and the need for collaboration between biology departments and math/physical sciences departments to remedy these deficiencies. Not a new point by any means, but still one worth making.
  • While browsing through the archives of Nature Genetics, I noticed that the first few issues of 2002 featured a DNA-patterned knit scarf on the cover. I had first seen this pattern on Making Light (link originally via Ed). June Oshiro, who designed the pattern, has a prettier version up on her website.
  • On a less dorky note, Ramsin Canon has a series of profiles of Illinois Senate hopefuls up at Gapers Block. (Also of note on GB: fellow University of Chicago graduate student Kate Lingley's excellent recipe for a leg of lamb dinner.)
