All Things Science

So I had decided over a year ago that I was adding in a new section to the site–All Things Science. The initial hopes is that I was going to be using the section to post reviews of papers, original articles on various topics, and my thoughts on different career paths. I wasn’t sure how often I was going to tie the main blog into the section and truthfully I haven’t been doing that well on adding pages to the section.

At the beginning of the year, I had started doing weekly science round-up news posts on the blog–but that only lasted maybe two week. There weren’t that many views of the posts, but again that could have been due to the fact that I don’t post ‘science’ posts all that often.

I’m hoping to restart the weekly science-round up news posts, both here as ‘pages’ and shorter blog posts (which may be biweekly) just to get a start again on science ‘news’ and postings.

I’m also going to start trying to post at least a monthly short review of different research papers as well, in addition to hopefully creating larger types of work (mini reviews or small articles) that will also get posted once a (or every other) month. Once I’ve gotten into the grove of things they may become more frequent.

This will also serve as a way of keeping myself accountable, especially as more people hear about blog. I’m trying to step outside of my comfort zone, and I realize that I will need more than one place to ‘publish’ my thoughts, ideas, and articles. One place will be here on the blog, and then slowly stretching to include LinkedIn and other platforms.

Since I’m curious by both nature and training, the topics that I’m going to slowly write about will come from the fields of biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, zoology, microbiology, plant biology, genomics, conservation biology, paleontology, and anthropology to name a few. Of course there will be sub-topics within each of these as well (for example molecular cloning).

Of course if you have any ideas, or questions that you would like answered—leave a comment, and I will see what it is and look into them and try to answer them as well.

Again as a disclaimer—additional pages will be added periodically, as scientific topics take a little more time and effort to distill down to understandable terms in comparison to writing a book review.
