Summary

Baltimore—A cross section of the scientific community, 4200 strong, came out for the 162nd Annual Meeting and Science Innovation Exposition of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS, the publisher of Science), held in Baltimore from 8 to 13 February. We covered early sessions last week (Science, 16 February, p. 903s); this week we cover talks on “giant” molecules, precocious lemurs, and on how the search for extraterrestrial intelligence has fared under private funding.
