Science magazine achievement of the year

This has been reported ad nauseum in the blogosphere, so I will add to the list.  I am glad that Science chose Evolution as its achievement for 2005.  The Chimp sequence is great, but the SNP project and the sequence of the 1918 flu pandemic virus are much more interesting. And despite the misgivings of Bill Joy and Ray Kurzweil (subscription required) about the flu virus, science needs to understand disease and other phenomena.  This is just the start.  Hopefully the years to come will allow us to learn a lot more about our evolutionary history.
