I don't want to spoil the ending of the Gender Testing of the Female Athelete, but I'll just say that I never saw it coming.

Awesome - the HHMI came in handing out awards to a group I worked in at the end of grad school, and it was amazing to see what serious buckets of money could do when actually getting used for good purposes. I tend to think of such things as assuaging guilty conciences of rich folks, or as government pork - but they seem to really support a lot of great research and projects. This looks like a useful resource for teachers and people wanting to learn more about this exploding, fascinating and terrifying field.

I want to thank you Gyan this time for this and the many other interesting posts and links you've been providing.

If you consider that I'm half-Middle Eastern half-Anglo Saxon, and you pinpoint the rough geographic average of those two, then the 100% Southern European rating was dead-on.

Great post Gyan. Right from the opening scene in Part 1 The E. coli movie, when the bacterium clears a landing strip through the microvilli, to the ending [spoiler alert] in Part 3 The E. coli as the pedestal forms, raising the bacteria on high, I was enthralled. Could have done with a soundtrack though.
