How should journalists cover quacks like Dr. Oz or the Food Babe?

The media has always had a hard time dealing with popular peddlers of pseudoscience.

Quantitative Temporal Viromics: An Approach to Investigate Host-Pathogen Interaction

Quantitative Temporal Viromics: An Approach to Investigate Host-Pathogen Interaction | Food Safety & Quality | Scoop.it

A systematic quantitative analysis of temporal changes in host and viral proteins throughout the course of a productive infection could provide dynamic insights into virus-host interaction. We developed a proteomic technique called “quantitative temporal viromics” (QTV), which employs multiplexed tandem-mass-tag-based mass spectrometry. Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is not only an important pathogen but a paradigm of viral immune evasion. QTV detailed how HCMV orchestrates the expression of >8,000 cellular proteins, including 1,200 cell-surface proteins to manipulate signaling pathways and counterintrinsic, innate, and adaptive immune defenses. QTV predicted natural killer and T cell ligands, as well as 29 viral proteins present at the cell surface, potential therapeutic targets. Temporal profiles of >80% of HCMV canonical genes and 14 noncanonical HCMV open reading frames were defined. QTV is a powerful method that can yield important insights into viral infection and is applicable to any virus with a robust in vitro model.

PLOS Computational Biology: Ten Simple Rules for Cultivating Open Science and Collaborative R&D

PLOS Computational Biology: Ten Simple Rules for Cultivating Open Science and Collaborative R&D | Food Safety & Quality | Scoop.it

How can we address the complexity and cost of applying science to societal challenges?

Open science and collaborative R&D may help [1]–[3]. Open science has been described as “a research accelerator” [4]. Open science implies open access [5] but goes beyond it: “Imagine a connected online web of scientific knowledge that integrates and connects data, computer code, chains of scientific reasoning, descriptions of open problems, and beyond …. tightly integrated with a scientific social web that directs scientists' attention where it is most valuable, releasing enormous collaborative potential.” [1].
