This Week in Stanford 1/9/11-1/15/11

Posted by at 1:07PM

I’m a little late with this one, but not because of a lack of news. Here’s what I found:

  • Cynthia Haven, writer for the Stanford News Service, has stirred up some controversy over edits to Huck Finn in her blog, The Book Haven. Quite a few other sources have covered it, but this seems to be the origin
  • Rhiju Das, professor of biochemistry, and his group have created EteRNA, an online game to fold RNA
  • ResEd is screening Zombieland later this week. You can never be too ready for the zombie apocalypse
  • Barbara Block and her group have contributed findings in the extent of the western-Atlantic bluefin’s spread. Given that they appear to be only in the Gulf of Mexico, they could be endangered, especially following the BP oil spill
  • Joe Gores, MA English, private investigator, and author died last week
