Good news on the spinal injury front: researchers seem to have found a way to get new motor neurons to extend out of the spinal cord. This is a big step: previously, new/implanted neurons were useless, because they stayed in the cord and didn't connect with target muscle. If this can be successfully applied to humans, it'll be a Very Big Deal.

The 'Magic Spot' of the bacterial genome has been identified, but the summary available doesn't really tell me anything useful. Obviously this sounds like a big deal, but I am left to wonder how it might apply. Any bacteriologists wanna help me out?
