Science Sampler

Well a good friend of mine is starting a virtual journal club, Science Sampler. We'll be 3 to 5 contributors and the entries will be about articles from the current scientific literature. From the website:

We read them so you don't have to!!! Comments on recent works in Cell Biology, from the cytoskeleton to membranes. And we also read yeast papers...

So far there are two articles reviewed on the site, including a review of the same STED microscopy paper that I wrote about a couple of weeks ago.

The format of this virtual journal club will be based on the 5 minute men, a club at Columbia U. From Science Sampler:

What is the 5 min men? Me and some other people from Columbia Univ. get together every Friday and present a paper in 5 min + 5 min discussion. We have been doing this for almost a year and it is great. Since one of the funding members is leaving to San Francisco, I thought on going virtual.

I'll try to review one paper (that I'll cross post here) every week.

Any other virtual journal clubs out there?
