Summary

In science news around the world, the European Commission authorizes Europe's first commercial stem cell product, the World Health Organization approves the first rapid diagnostic test for Ebola, Nature Publishing Group's journals offer authors the option of double-blind peer reviews, and malaria parasites resistant to the most powerful antimalarial drug appear to have spread from Southeast Asia to the border of Myanmar and India, a potential disaster for global malaria control. Also, the head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change resigns amid allegations of sexual harassment by a colleague. And the winners of the 2015 Visualization Challenge highlight the beauty of science.
