Those who have been following this blog for long enough probably know what it means when posting slows down — it means that I’ve got a new project in the works. I’m currently working on a new online platform for biotechnology education. It should be ready for beta testing by December first, and formally launch early in 2009.
Let me know if you might be interested in helping beta test this online education platform. And while you’re waiting for more posts, check out some of the fantastic guest content.
