Summary

DENVER, COLORADO-- More than 5000 attendees--many of whom extended their stays when flights to a snowbound East Coast were canceled--met here 13 to 18 February to hear highlights of recent research from a wide range of fields, including a report about microbes that apparently use the byproducts of radioactive decay to survive. For more coverage, see last week's issue (p. 1177) and Science NOW (www.sciencenow.org).
