I would like this site to be a place were principal investigators, graduate students and lab technicians interact, asking for help from one another and hopefully helping others along the way. The blog will have many types of posts including technical posts, video tutorials, webinars, fun posts and general interest stories. But most importantly, I would like to be responsive to the requests of our readership (or should I say contributorship?) and let the discussion go wherever you want to take them. I will endeavor to post content 3-5 times per week so you should be sure to visit often.
