    N.B. This is not in PLoS One, but PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases, which is a fascinating and incredibly important journal in and of itself.

    This is sooo weird.  This morning, I was thinking about stool samples, wondering if there’s a standard protocol for selecting where (outside layer, inside, halfway, a third in, etc) in the sample one selects the actual tiny piece that is measured, where the egg/worm/cell density is counted, and so on.

    While scanning the link, it occured to me that the lab technicians can probably identify the ‘front’ and ‘back’ of a sample at a glance.  Ah, the skills you pick up at work…

     For some reason I really got into this also with 5 tabs open reading definitions. I am not even sure if I learned anything other than don’t go to the tropics. LoL
