After two years of running the Read More Science blog for popular science book reviews, I find myself leaning in a different direction. I spent a lot of time considering this decision, and I’ve decided to change readmorescience.com from a blog for book reviews to my personal website as a science writer, so I canContinue reading “New Year, New Look, Big Changes”

A new book by Italian molecular biologist Sergio Pistoi explores at-home DNA testing and what it really means for big data and genealogy.
