It is time again for the bi-weekly collection of Tangled Bank Submissions. I will apologize in advance for not writing any of the articles collected here; I've done lots of science writing in the past two weeks, but none of it is palatable for human consumption (really, do you want to read about my isolation of the lux operon? It's well written, but still . . . ). Thanks for visiting, and I hope you enjoy the wonderful articles collected here.
