that's a good site with good resources. I want to say this, about scientific journals..it is of upmost importance that when you read scientific articles, that you look at the figures, and read study them critically. I don't read the discussion of hte paper until I have finished reading the results and looked at the figures. The figures are the data, the heart of the paper. One has got to draw his/her own conclusions based on the raw data or the figures without being swayed by the discussion; keeping in mind the central question the paper is addressing. No matter how neutral scientists try to be, bias, a human condition unfortunatly, sometimes sneaks in. You have to question critically even sceintic journals. For example, if you see a figure of a western or southern blot, make sure that they have a positve and negative control. Otherwise the figure may not be representative of the data they are trying to pursue. Little things like this will make everyone more of a critical thinker which is exactly what we need in the world.

On a side note: quantitative biology is the new shit. My prediction is that biophysics is going to be the next mirror result of computer engineering in the 90's. Only because it is hard (less people) and so open for research (biology is extremly qualitative these days). Biotechnology is around the corner.

I'm a dipshit.

they have been hunting for solutions to biotechnology for a while already. hell, they try to tie everything in with life. they even had that short spell with trying to incorporate bio-luminesence into that one rich guy like 5 or 6 years ago. complete cybernetics has been the dream of man for a long time and, im almost scared to say it, but, stemcell would help that feild also.

Nice!

Nice resource, but the evolution section is scanty. Anyone know a resource like this that is mainly biological?

With the recent breakthroughs in stem cell research, it seems that dream is getting closer to becoming a reality.

Great resource, by the way! (lanl) This is so cool! I only wish I understood even 1% of these papers. The math looks so foreign.. I'd like to be able to comprehend these publications some day Innocent

It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand.

No fate but what we make for ourselves.
