Patient, Heal Thyself | Innovations, Until last week, I don’t think I’d ever heard of the African spiny mouse. I’m guessing I’m probably not alone. Apparently, they’re nice pets if you prefer an other-side-of-the-glass relationship. No question they’re cute things, only six inches or so long if you count their tails, and they have a rep for sucking down a lot of water. Oh, and you’re not supposed to pick them up by their tails. #Science #medicine

Danny Hillis: Understanding cancer through proteomics - Danny Hills makes a case for the next frontier of cancer research: proteomics, the study of proteins in the body. As Hillis explains it, genomics shows us a list of the ingredients of the body -- while proteomics shows us what those ingredients produce. Understanding what's going on in your body at the protein level may lead to a new understanding of how cancer happens. #medicine #science
