Ensemblog: The Ensembl Weblog

Pongo pygmaeus abeliiThe Ensembl Weblog provides news, views and announcements about the Ensembl Genome Browser. The blog has been going for a few years now, but I have only just become aware of it thanks to a recent Ensembl Genome Browser Tutorial by Bert Overduin. Catching up on posts from Ensemblians this year, Ewan Birney wrote a piece about The Gene Love-in last week and Paul Flicek briefly described the 1000 Genomes project back in January. The Ensembl Weblog is fairly low traffic, so if you don’t already read it, it’s worth considering subscribing to the feed.

And it’s good to see more scientists using blogs to communicate. Long may this trend continue!
