Android : Our PLOS Biology paper, from a great collaboration with Dr. Cyril Benes, shows that escape from #necroptosis is driven by oncogenes (BRAF and AXL) and could be a potential novel hallmark of #cancer. plos.io/2PvasO4

Android : Retroviruses could be responsible for longer gestation times in humans, cool stuff! twitter.com/plosbiology/st…

Twitter Web Client : This thread is going to be a plea for nuance and civility in open access/science discussions. I do this, realizing that Twitter rewards and pushes for extremes, hyperbole, provocation.

I know this is an uphill battle, but please bear with with me. 1/

Android : Read how Sputnik launched the career of our CU Boulder colleague Norm Pace, along with the field of microbiomics. Great PLOS Biology story, well worth reading if only so you can say you've read a scientific article containing the word "yucky." twitter.com/lizabio/status…

Android : Laurence Hurst on what drove the development of The Milner Centre for Evolution -fundamental evolutionary biology research, best way to teach evo & on real world appplications of evo (eg drug therapies for cancer). The building was specially designed by biologists with fossils & MSA #MilnerLaunch

TweetDeck : #StemCells divide more symmetrically as they age. Detailed study of paired daughter cells shows that asymmetry of hematopoietic stem cell division falls upon #aging; cellular & #epigenetic polarity help determine outcome of division #PLOSBiology plos.io/2PRIqfM

Android : StemCells lose their ability for asymmetrical division with age! Makes one wonder if its an inability or requirement-induced ability acquired with age! Nevertheless PLOS Biology every day gives me a musing on my twitter feed, with amazing articles! twitter.com/PLOSBiology/st…
