Note: finally some science articles again!

Dear followers of this blog,

Over the next few days I’ll be returning a bit to the original intent of this blog with some recent articles about SCIENCE – extremely interesting stories that are appearing in press over the next few days… Most of these will also appear on the website of my institute, the Max Delbrück Centre for Molecular Medicine. I’ll also be posting more articles about my teaching activities soon. And not to worry – there are plenty of cartoons, updates to the Devil’s Dictionary, and maybe even a revival of the “Best of PubMed series” coming soon.
