July 2018 Issue of The Analytical Scientist

Welcome to our July issue! We look find out how robotics are taking MS to the next level, find out playwright Anton Chekhov’s cause of death, and discover why hippo toilet habits could spell disaster for Kenyan fish. Scientists discuss the nature – and importance – of curiosity in our main feature, and we discuss the challenges of putting forensic science “on trial.” We also speak to 2014’s Power Listers to find out what they’ve been up to, and sit down with Glen Jackson, who shares his passion for mass spec and forensics.
