These stories capture the human face of biology, highlighting the work of researchers and medical professionals who are making new discoveries every day. The text is accompanied by a wealth of carefully crafted pedagogy that teaches students how to analyze science in the news, interpret data, ask questions, and distinguish between science and pseudoscience.
