Science of the Week, 11/15/13

I'm over at Scene 13 today sharing one of my character's Thanksgivings. Please stop on by and check it out.

Here are some interesting science news articles for the week:

Fossil of new big cat species discovered; oldest ever found

How zinc starves lethal bacteria to stop infection

Better batteries through biology?

Fast-mutating DNA sequences guided evolution of uniquely human traits

 Scientists halt deadly organ tissue scarring in its tracks

Researchers make surfaces easier to cool under extreme heat

Nanogrid, activated by sunlight, breaks down polluants in water

It's been a very busy week at work, since we're in the middle of moving to a new location. I've been wrapping up lab equipment, packing boxes, and moving them for the last few days. The fun continues today and through next week. Therefore, I'm going to keep this post a bit shorter than normal. Have a good weekend, and see you Monday!

You're welcome, PK.

It's not always easy keeping to a blogging schedule, Crystal, but I try my best.
