Do you know the difference between robustness and ruggedness? Selectivity and specificity? 


This week, Victoria Samanidou kicks off our newsletter with her opinion piece exploring the importance of accurate terminology in analytical science. Following this, Zachary Pitliuk shares his thoughts on the vast potential of single cell analysis, and we unmask the “dark metabolites” in your glass of beer. Did any of these spark a debate in your lab? Let us know by tweeting us @tAnaSci!
