I have these on my Amazon wish list and plan to buy them sometime soon, so I haven’t read them yet! However, I found out about them because one of the authors was on Meet the Microbiologist...

Dear TWiV,

I am a new TWiV listener and have loved listening to you all on my daily commute. I worked a bit with viruses during my undergrad, and have since been doing malaria research but have been keeping up with the world of virology thanks to TWiV and I am now thinking about doing my PhD in a virology lab.

Dickson cited a poem about a candle burning, and this triggered the following memory:

My candle burns at both ends; it will not last the night; but ah, my foes, and oh, my friends – it gives a lovely light!...

Greetings again TWIV docs,

As someone who worked on identifying physiologically relevant CD8+ T cell epitopes for potential dengue vaccines, thanks for covering the latest on Dengvaxia. The background scuttlebutt in our biotech circles probably led to skepticism  about this vaccine but now the data is emerging. It’s a bummer, because an effective Dengue virus vaccine for all individuals is very much needed.

Hi Twiverinos,

As someone who recently received a PhD in microbiology and who often receives remarks from peers and PIs praising me for the sheer amount of work I have produced in my time in grad school, I could not disagree more strongly with the notion set forth by Jon Yewdell that you have to work insane hours to be successful.

I’d like to throw my name in the hat for the Viruses Book giveaway. But more importantly I feel like adding to the ‘spin-off’ conversation you had about publishing and career advancement...

As always, appreciate the show. Especially ep. 461 since so much of my time involves reviews of similar experiments! Thank you for acknowledging the papers are not easy to decipher! When reviewing for safety:  safety of the vectors, safety of the transgenes, safety of the procedures there can be a lot of cross-checking to learn about every single piece of the experimental setup (particularly the molecular biology)!

When I was looking for Fenner’s papers Online, I could not find any.  As luck would have it, someone soon after handed me a copy of the 1957 – 1958 Harvey lectures — one by Frank Fenner.  I put a PDF here:
