July 2017 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to our July issue! In Upfront, we pinpoint Pinot Noir’s origin, vet VR in the chemistry classroom, and catch up with the world’s longest synchrotron light experiment. In our features, we talk to the “cartographers of cancer”, meet some of the new faces of forensics, and find out what analytical science has up its sleeve. In My Views cover ageism in science, mass spec mania, and dilemmas in the food industry – and we Sit Down With curator of good science, Ian Wilson.
