Scientists have been trying to address this problem with chemistry by adding coatings to the mesh materials, but Boreyko says the coatings aren’t durable. They tend to wear away from the mesh when exposed to the elements. Boreyko’s lab, in collaboration with Virginia Tech industrial design professor Brook S. Kennedy, has taken a different tack by redesigning fog-collecting devices, ones that don’t require coatings. Like many in the field of fog harvesting, Boreyko and Kennedy found inspiration in plants, which can’t move to collect the water they need and have therefore developed clever ways to hydrate themselves.
Using what he called “a Talmudic type of reasoning,” Mr. Pavoncello said that if Jews had been following the ancient kosher rule for centuries, it is unlikely that they would have suddenly made an exception for fried artichokes in the 16th century. Rabbis back then must have determined, he said, that Roman artichokes were impervious to worms, and thus edible.
As many as 5 million species of fungi grow on Earth, each of which may encode biosynthetic pathways for up to 80 different natural products. Growing fungi in the lab tends to take a long time, and fungi don’t express all their biosynthetic gene clusters actively. So eking out enough of those natural products to study—let alone commercialize—has been nearly impossible.
“Phosphoramidite DNA synthesis technology has reached a technological plateau,” Efcavitch says. “A combination of factors led us to explore enzymatic synthesis not as a replacement for but as a supplement to phosphoramidite chemistry.” In addition to the length limits, the older chemistry requires significant postsynthesis processing and produces hazardous waste, including acids, bases, and organic solvents.
Jonas Wamstad, CEO of the water-harvesting company Drupps, is hoping his company, which spun off from the humidity-control company Airwatergreen in 2017, will stand out from the competition, thanks to a different kind of water-collecting technology. In the Middle East, he points out, water-harvesting technologies based on cooling tend not to work well because the relative humidity is low during the day, so there’s less water to gather. Humidity is higher after dusk, but low nighttime temperatures make cooling systems energy inefficient because you have to cool the condensers to lower temperatures.
It’s easy to fall into the idea that women of the past were always obedient homemakers. Then comes along someone like Mary Frith, who in 1600s England was dressing in men’s clothing, smoking, stealing, singing, having plays written about her, and generally doing whatever she pleased. I love how Meg Van Huygen resuscitates her story and tells it even with its complexity (some of her biography may be invented) and gaps. It’s a reminder that history is messy, non-linear, and often so much more interesting than we’ve been taught. —BL
But her real pride and joy is on the other counter. That’s where she keeps her 43 colonies of bedbugs, each group in its own small canning jar covered with a fine white mesh that she buys from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft, where it’s often sold as bridal veil. The bugs come from military bases and poultry farms, from Somalia to Argentina, Indiana to New Jersey to Vermont. Now, they live here in New Haven — pests turned study subjects. “Most bedbug research in the United States is how to kill them, and not to understand them,” she said. “And my feeling is that if you get a better understanding of how the insects tick, you are going to find the Achilles’ heel.”

For almost 30 years, Zimmerman has been a part-time faculty member at Tufts University School of Engineering. He also founded a liquid-crystal polymer packaging start-up that he has since sold. He says, “I developed the intellectual property for Ionic Materials working on my own the old-fashioned way: in my garage.”
