Genetic Future is moving to Wired

In my second big piece of news for the day, I’m pleased to announce that Genetic Future will shortly be moving to a  the brand new Wired Science Blogs network. While the network was announced today there will be a brief hiatus before I get started in my new home, due to the time constraints…

Blogging hiatus

Blogging on Genetic Future will be pretty much non-existent for the next three weeks.

Genetic Future on Twitter

So I’m trying this Twitter thing all the cool kids are talking about – seems like a handy way to share interesting genetics-related stuff that doesn’t quite warrant a full blog post. If you are so inclined you can follow me here. That is all. ¬†Subscribe to Genetic Future.

I’ll be there as well (albeit probably looking a little frazzled and well in need of a beer, as I move to the UK on the following Monday!). Here’s what Sydney readers need to know:…

Welcome to Genetic Future

Welcome to the new look Genetic Future, now hosted on ScienceBlogs. In around five years, a complete genome sequence will be readily affordable for most citizens of wealthy industrialised nations – even those of us on a researcher’s salary. At the same time we will have access to vast amounts of data about the effects…
