Correction: No research data lost in robbery

Contrary to international and local news reports of the Aug. 4 armed robbery in South Africa of Jim Mullins, UW professor of microbiology, no research data was lost when the robbers took his personally owned laptop computer. All of the research data was backed up in Seattle. Only some notes Mullins had written on the plane to South Africa in editing his plenary speech for an HIV/AIDS conference were stored on the stolen computer. Mullins was not injured in the daytime attack by seven knife-wielding teenagers.
