February 2017 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to the February issue, which brings you cross-border collaboration and cannabis science! In Upfront we hunt down rare earth elements, track brain activity using Google Glass, and use Raman to solve the mysterious case of the Finnish clock. Our features cover analytical science in Africa, pharmaceuticals in the water, and reproducibility in literature. Our new academia-industry collaboration series hunts down proteomes, In My View tackles the microbiome and the metabolome, and we Sit Down With ‘Gadgeteer at Heart’ Milton Lee.
