Hello, welcome to our blog! We are a team of undergraduate and graduate science students from Dalhousie University (Canada) trying to help you better understand the science behind ongoing research. Open access journals such as Public Library of Science (PLOS) are making scientific discoveries accessible to the public, but these articles are often still written using scientific jargon. Our summaries of scientific publications will remove the jargon and focus on the what, why, and how.

What is already known? What are the results?  What are possible future experiments?

Why is the research important? Why should we care?

How do the results change the field?

We hope that our summaries prompt you to think of the PLOSibilties.
