Four. Smart Sutures. A 17-year-old girl makes a low-cost suture thread that changes color in case of infection. It's not all sunshine and roses, but the solution is brilliant and could be useful in many developing countries and beyond.
Five. DNA from the air. A group of researchers study a colony of mice for a year to see if it's possible to detect their DNA from air samples, and they find that it works, even on human DNA!
