Sampling DNA From a 1,000-Year-Old Illuminated Manuscript

Sampling DNA From a 1K-Year-Old…Manuscript As reported from a unsubmitted preprint. Pot. #privacy implications

Remarkably, the authors say they extracted all this DNA without destroying even a tiny piece of parchment. All they needed were the crumbs from rubbing the book with erasers, which conservationists routinely use to clean manuscripts. The authors report their findings in a preprint that has not yet been peer-reviewed, though they plan to submit it to a scientific journal.”

Pools in the New Haven Area

August 27, 2017

Notes on local INDOOR swimming pools:

* Cheshire Community Pool
Great pool, lots of room, pay per swim

* JCC of Greater New Haven
Membership for this pool? ~$30 for adults?
(allows 1-day visiting swim w/o membership)
A bit crowded during open swim.
JCC is located at 360 Amity Road, Woodbridge, CT.

* Soundview (Branford) YMCA Pool
Requires a membership, but it has two pools and usually a lot of space

* Hamden Hall’s pool
Only open for HH affiliated people or for large group bookings

* Small pool (~15 yds) at the Guilford Racquet and Swim club
other than this, there is no public pool in Guilford

* Yale Swimming Pool
Requires a membership, but the third
floor pool is usually pretty spacious (50 LCM) and doesn’t use as much chlorine as other pools (it uses UV light instead)
