Summary

In science news around the world, the World Health Organization calls for the public release of clinical trials data, Brazil approves the first commercial planting of genetically modified eucalyptus trees, a review panel convened by the Scientific Committee of the International Whaling Commission gives Japanese research whaling a thumbs-down, and the death of monkeys at a Harvard University primate research facility prompts an investigation. Also, a thoracic surgeon who famously transplanted artificial tracheae into patients—and then faced misconduct charges—has been cleared in one of two investigations. And biomedical engineer Joshua Resnikoff discusses Labconscious, a blog he created to help scientists green their labs.
