Dear TWiV Masters,

In episode 482, the paper discussed used the PacBio long read sequencing technology. However, Vincent referred to the machine as being “the size of a harmonica,” when the PacBio Sequel is actually about 5 and a half feet tall. The MinION, by Oxford Nanopore, is the small portable long read sequencer that had been mentioned on TWiEvo...

Hi TWiV hosts (and Vincent’s wife),

I heard Vincent lament on TWiV 481 that it was not possible yet to repair cartilage with stem cells and I wanted to draw your attention to a Sydney based Biotech company that is doing exactly that...

Hello Drs. TWiV,

While listening to your most recent episode I was reminded of an article title/abstract I saw last year (see link below) that I don’t remember you covering. I understand there are other benefits to switching the production method for the flu vaccine but it would seem that this method could help alleviate some of the issues with egg adaptation...

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.

I love TWiV. Thanks to you Vincent and to all members of the TWiV team. This is the best educational experience ever. I have reached a stage of TWiV addiction, where a paper is not a paper until I hear it discussed on TWiV, and I would love to hear every single new virology-related finding discussed by you guys because I learn a lot...

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!...

Dear Dr KAV,

You attributed the science of HIV listener pick to me in episode 475. I can’t take credit for this. Maybe you mixed up emails?..

Hi TwiVanguardians,

It’s been a while since I have written to TWiV, but as always it was great listening to all the “in depth” discussion on various issues concerning life as a scientist, especially in response to Raihan’s email and pressures / frustrations of publishing...

Hi everyone,

I actually would have preferred if my aside about number of publications had not been read on air. As Kathy said, I simply had wanted to provide some actual data to back up my claim that it is not necessary to work insane hours to succeed at research...
