Unlike most of the other science blogs you might check out, this is a real 'research blog'. In it I write about the experiments and analyses we do in my lab, and about what I think they mean. I've been doing this for about 6 months, and I find that writing it helps me think more clearly about our work.
I don't expect casual visitors (or any visitors except those from my lab) to follow the complexities of the science, but it might give them a sense of what more-or-less ordinary* scientists do and how we think.
*No, of course I don't really think I'm any more ordinary than any other scientist (we all think we're special), but I'm a Canadian so I feel obliged to pretend.
