    Episode 107: Ground Control to... (examining Extremophiles)

    Chad and Mike discuss a recent paper in which Deinococcus radiodurans were left outside the International Space Station for three years and survived.  These bacteria were known to be extremophiles, able to survive in hostile environments, but the ability to survive in spite of the UV radiation and cold of outer space is even more impressive.

Great talk on GMOs!

The GMO talk gave me great insight on the ethics of GMO food and biotechnology. It is giving me further insight on how there is a delema on the pharmocogenomics and GMO vectors in empirical research! Thanks guys. It was great studying with the two of you as an undergrad. I plan to listen to more of the podcasts during the morning while using my blue mood light and hypothesizing about seasonal gene expression in man.
