Around the Bioblogosphere

Ever wonder what biobloggers are blogging about on their blogs? Here’s what: Razib posts part of a paper by Jerry Coyne and others (which I can’t seem to track down) which questions the role cis regulatory elements play in adaptive phenotypic evolution. This all part of Coyne’s war on evo-devo. Another post at GNXP (this…

Links Dumped

Because my browser consists of a growing forest of tabs containing stuff waiting to be blogged, and there is no way I can write a complete entry on each one, and I want to at least link to the relevant sites so that I can close those tabs, I give you a link dump with…

He’s With the Tralfamadorians Now

Because everyone else is commenting on it, I must as well. After all, I’d jump off of a bridge if everyone else were doing it. I don’t read science fiction. Sure, I’ve read a couple of the classics (ie, Ender’s Game). And I was really into Stephen King for a couple of years, starting in…

Darwin Does Indeed Sell Out

GAME PREVIEW | PRESS CENTER We are merely (a) day(s) away from the game between Corporate and Darwin (we’re not sure whether the game will happen tomorrow or the next day due to some scheduling conflicts at Ivory Tower Arena), and the Corporate team has made a stunning revelation: Darwin did it for the money,…

Once a Blogger, Soon to be a Blogger Again

The word on the streets is that there used to be a blog at this URL (pronounced like the mountain range separating Europe from Asia). If this were a blog, however, it would be updated often and definitely not left dormant for over two weeks. All I can say is that meth is a hell…

Week of Science Challenge — One Week Away

The Week of Science Challenge (official website here) begins next Monday (5 February 2007). During the time of the challenge, all participating bloggers will post at least once per day on science and only science — no anti science or non-science material. If you would like to participate, you can sign up here by providing…

The Motherboard Has Landed

I got my motherboard replaced a couple of hours ago, so I now have my old forms of procrastination at my disposal — blogging and blog reading. I’ve got one link for you that is relevant to Gregg Easterbrook’s anti-multi-author screed. This one comes from BioCurious; it’s an article on attributing credit in multi-author papers.…

Mendel’s Garden & Other Announcements

Three things: A new edition of Mendel’s Garden has been posted at Neurotopia. Go read the latest genetics blogging. The anecdote at the beginning of my rant about elevator usage needs a slight correction: I think the grad student who took the elevator down has a bum knee (it’s a new injury). I’m not too…

The Week of Science Challenge

Do you consider yourself a Science Blogger? You could be a hard blogging scientist, science journalist, student of science, or just a member of the general public with an interest in the scientific process. If you identify with any of these, I’ve got a challenge for you. It boils down to this: One week of…
