Today's Globe: genetics of life on Mars, undersea life, lessons out of med school, chocolate dream, Botox, full moon, Joslin halt
If there is life on Mars, a Harvard geneticist Gary Ruvkun thinks it resembles something we already know. Now, he's trying to prove it.
Laura Preston, a ninth-grade earth sciences teacher at Salem High School in New Hampshire, shares her blog about spending the last four weeks aboard a research vessel in the Pacific Ocean studying undersea volcanoes.

General West Medical Group and assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.
