    This is very interesting. I’ll follow up on it. I have been busy with reviewing the metabolome.

    When I was a resident at UCSD in 1970-73, the son of Ernest Beutler, the great hematologist (who published a huge amount of work on red cell enzymes and red cell defects at City of Hope) was a senior medical student at UCSD. He was inspired to study infectious diseases by Abraham Braude, who was also my mentor. Braude was a great physician, but he developed methods for bacterial identification and had his own method of gradient diffussion microbial antibiotic sensitivities. I think his work was rivalled years later by Eugene Rypka. The son of Beutler won the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his work on TLRs this year.
