You're being too modest, Adriana. If you'd done your full name then you would have coma back as Q9NUT2|ABCB8_HUMAN - found in the species Homo sapiens. You may be the only actual human amongst us! :-))))

How come Adriana gets to be the helpful bacterium, which rarely harms humans? Not fair! LOL!

If I use the basic form of my name then I cause typhoid fever; if I include my middle names, then I cause TB in cattle. Yay!

I was only really commenting on the Canadian story. I do agree with the point about corporate funding and academic freedom, but I was just pointing out that you sacrifice that if you move out of academia.

I think that all academic research should be state-funded through research councils, to remove direct interference, or through a "blind" trust to stop that pressure on research direction and suppression of adverse results.

Adriana, it's not that unusual not to be allowed to publish results (or even discuss them) - it's often in the contract. It depends which part of government you work for. If I'm working for the Ministry of Defence, then I'm not even supposed to say where I'm working, or discuss exactly what I do or see, and I'm only an ecologist. However, in a department like Natural Resources then that is less usual, though I'm not surprised by this at all. Academia is very different from working for government or industry. When I worked for Eastman Kodak they searched us randomly as we left the facility so that we could not remove research materials.

Adriana, on the censoring of science, see this piece today on PZ Myers's blog:

Scientists these days are having a hard enough time communicating the truth about sensitive (anti-corporate interest) issues without this kind of thing. In academia, no less!

And do you know who else went to the same high school, at the same time? The Rev Terry Jones!!!! They must be so proud :-0

Does it ever occur to that half-witted, under-educated fool (Rush Limbaugh) that he is employed in the media?

See Stephen Hawking this Friday (September 10) in a one-on-one interview live on "Larry King Live" at 9 p.m. ET only on CNN.
