If you missed yesterday’s 2 hour and 40 minute House subcommittee hearing on Biosafety lapses at the CDC and FDA labs, you have two excellent ways to catch up.  

First, Lisa Schnirring at CIDRAP News has put together an excellent summary report, which you can read at:

And second, the video of the hearing – along with supporting documents - are now available on the House Energy and Commerce Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee website.
