In PLOS Biology this week, you can read about neural activity in bird song, the utility of mathematical models in evolutionary biology, how diet can shape the genome and the robustness of protein interaction networks.
When we think of antioxidants, we think of good, protective things, like blueberries, red wine, and dark chocolate (God, I love antioxidants). But cancer, that nefarious creature, finds a way to corrupt even the most benign cellular
