Turn My Orientation On Said The Fruit Fly
I've been away, doing nothing in particular, fretting, mostly. I wish I'd been recording all the wonderful news that's been coming from genetic research though, right from the mind bending work being done in South Korea by Dr. Woo Suk Hwang's team to today's feature in the NYT on sexual orientation in fruit flies. There was another, somewhat sobering, piece by Nicholas Wade on May 3 that discussed chimeras in the lab, fascinating stuff.

In other news, I've recently finished reading two rather interesting works by Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood - the coming of age story of a passive and somewhat disturbed young man, and The Wind-up Bird Chronicle - a hauntingly imagined novel filled with neurotic characters. Highly recommended.
So then.
