progress on bees

This is kind of cool. The article plays up some of the serendipitous aspects to make it more of a human interest story, but the real tale here is that some very brute force techniques have identified a fungus + virus in all the analyzed bee colonies.

I have this weird feeling we're going to be vaccinating beehives a few years in the future. What an odd world we live in.
