Ed Yong, in The Atlantic, on how New Zealand’s war on rats might change the world (and never essentially for one of the best).

Carl Zimmer, in The New York Times, on why scientists believe gene drives (like the one discussed in Ed Yong’s article) are too risky to employ.

Azmat Khan and Anand Gopal, additionally in The New York Times, with an incredible piece of journalism on the accuracy, or lack thereof, of America’s bombing of ISIS.
