New biology news site looks good

This brand-new site collects news in the biological sciences and presents it in a simple, appealing format. The news for 5/4/09 includes research indicating narcolepsy (extreme sleepiness), blamed on many causes, is an autoimmune disease, and an item on how birdsong evolves in isolated individuals but reverts to the the species' "normal" song over several generations. ("Zebra finch 2544-N, you have been assimilated.")
