"Basics" elsewhere

I'll try to get the third installment on normal flora "basics" up tomorrow, before I spend Wednesday at Darwin Day events here in Iowa City and then the next few days at AAAS in San Francisco.

I read your blog regularly as a great source of epidemiology news for a non-epidemiologist. I live in SF, and will be at the AAAS Meeting.

Hiya! Sure, if you want to shoot me an email with some suggestions, I'd appreciate it. The conference takes place at the Hilton San Francisco and Towers on O'Farrell street, so anything in that neighborhood would be particularly helpful.

Have a safe and enjoyable trip.
