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. In the meantime, in case you've not come across it yet, John Wilkins has been keeping an updated list of "Basics" posts here; new and notable for readers here include Shelley's post on prions and Jeremy's on ecology.
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.
Do you need a list of good restaurants in SF (avoid the Fisherman's wharf tourist trap: try Cafe Bastille or Plouf or Lulu's)
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.
Tara, emailed you at the aetiology gmail address.
Have a safe and enjoyable trip.
