A few weeks ago, I asked if you, dear readers would be able to tell the difference between a computer scientist and a serial killer. Now, I’ve seen the crowds at the UW computational biology seminars and I’ve also seen pictures of serial killers in the newspaper. I don’t think it would be easy to…

Reposted from Halloween 2006. Since Ben shared his family’s taxonomy of candy types, and it’s Friday, after all, I thought I’d share some of things that we do with candy around our house and describe some fun things that you can do with candy at home.

Now at last, we biologists can start to understand the mysterious ways of software engineers with this helpful reference from Silicon Glen. Although, maybe we…

The funny thing is that sometimes we think that our rules and standards apply to other fields of science and assume that our conventions…
