New Blog at BSCB
Our sister site softCELL over at the BSCB has introduced a new occasional blog. This new blog covers interesting new topics and research in cell biology and also contains interviews with people working in the field. Here's what they have to say:

"We are delighted you are interested in cell biology and hope you will find our stories about people, their careers and research of interest. We hope they inspire you and by providing examples of what others have done, show you what YOU CAN DO. The blog may also contain 'blogbytes', bits of information such as definitions." LINK
