Article: DNA Sequencing: Maxam Gilbert Method - Comment by: Anuran Kashyap - 2015-03-24

The example cited is wrong. Upon electrophoresis and subsequent detection, the 12th position has dark bands forming for all the reactions indicating that all the bases are present at the 12th site, which obviously is not possible. Much so that while writing the sequence, the author has intentionally not written any base for 12th position because of the ambiguity.

Article: Those Little Bugs That Cause Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) - Comment by: jennifer owen - 2015-02-17

This article was very interesting. I have known I had a UTI for a while but all the doctor did was dip a stick in it which didn't show any infection. I insisted he send it away and has come back as a bug in my urine. In the absence of "caring" doctors these days its helpful to be able to check symptoms.
