Welcome to In the Autoclave, a blog about science. I'm using this space to talk about things that are going on in modern science today, with an emphasis on biology. I'll be periodically linking to and discussing articles about science in the popular newsmedia, talking about portrayals of science and scientists in entertainment, and also talking about interesting things in the scientific literature that perhaps didn't get as much coverage in the press. Discussion is welcome, provided that it remains civil.
