Must-read posts

I was travelling over the weekend and I’m incredibly busy up through Wednesday, so new material from me will have to wait until later in the week. In the meantime, I’ll point you to a stellar post I wanted to highlight last week, from Revere on H5N1 and the evolution ov virulence, and another excellent one from Mike regarding the importance of surveillance when it comes to detecting and containing outbreaks (such as the recent O157 outbreak). He also describes a timeline for how long many of the common procedures take; quite a bit different from what you get watching CSI or similar shows where every test is finished in a hour.
