James and the Giant Corn Genetics: Studying the Source Code of Nature

November 18, 2009

So what do you all enjoy reading about?

I’ve got a couple of indirect ways of estimating changes in the number of subscribers to my RSS feed, and from my, very, VERY rough, estimates, it looks like it’s been increasing a lot faster than actual click-throughs to articles. Even if you read only one post and actually find a bit of science that excites you, I’ve done something completely worthwhile.

However, I did want to give everyone a chance, both new subscribers and regulars (has this site been around long enough to have regulars?) to let me know what kind of information drew you to this site, and/or what you’re interested in reading about.

There are so many things I’d love to write about but realistically I’ve only got time to write a couple of posts a day (being a grad student is actually a lot of work, and until recently I’ve always been the sort of person who needs to spend a couple of hours a day relaxing/decompressing/.) So if there’s anything in particular you’ve enjoyed reading about on this site, speak up!

That’s not a demand, it’s not even a request, just an open invitation.


  1. I started to work at the bio-informatics department in a company with a focus on molecular genetics and biotechnology for the plant breeding industry. Coming from a prokaryotic workfield, blogs that involve plant-genetics are very interesting. I’m not sure how you lured me, I guess from a post of another blog 🙂

  2. Cool! My university lumps microbial and plant people together (I guess in their eyes we’re non-animal biologists), and the plus side has been learning a random assortment of cool prokaryote biology (for example the biosynthesis of B12) that I never would have heard about otherwise.

  3. I like variety, actually. That’s what I rely on the blogs for. New cool papers, current news issues, but the educational pieces as well. Interesting links. Funny diversions.

    Don’t constrain yourself for us.

  4. Alright then, as much random interesting stuff as I can manage it shall be!
