A note to PLOS BLOGS readers, beginning at 9 am (PT) on Thurs. October 8th, due to some behind-the-scenes work by our PLOS Product Team, the PLOS BLOGS Network will be in "read only" mode. This means that for one week there will be no new blog posts and no new comments accepted on existing posts.
All PLOS BLOGS will be live again, with a new and improved user interface, by 9 am (PT) on Wed. Oct 14. We appreciate your patience and look forward to bringing you the same great content with our new look and feel very soon!
