In places where controlling tuberculosis (TB) is a concern, there is an urgent need for simple, inexpensive diagnostics that can identify active TB, particularly in the context of HIV infection. In a recent paper (PLoS Medicine, October 22, 2013), researchers discovered that a unique RNA transcriptional signature found in whole blood could distinguish TB from other diseases including HIV…

Where do scientists charged with analyzing forensic DNA samples from crime scenes go when they want to stay current on new methods, trends and products?  We recently learned it may not be the same place as other scientists undertaking similar tasks like DNA-based paternity testing, human cell line identification and human phenotype testing.

In a recent survey, we asked over…
