Immunology and the Dover trial

Pandas Thumb contributors Andrea Bottaro, Matt Inlay, and Nick Matzke have a new article in Nature Immunology. As summarized, "Immunology had an unexpected and decisive part in challenging the claims of 'Intelligent Design' proponents at the US trial on the teaching of evolution in public schools in Dover, Pennsylvania." Andrea, Nick, and Matt fill in the details. (And for those of you who don't have access to Nature Immunology, as always, I'm happy to email you a .pdf...just drop me a line).

Is it? I did not know that. Certainly I for one wouldn't want to take advantage of her generosity. Since I have access to a good med school university library, maybe the best course of action for me would be to check out the hard-copy edition.

Dave,

I don't actually know if it costs anything. I'm just somewhat skittish about presuming.

Don't worry--no cost to me. It's available through our library here.
