Keeping busy, writing about molecular biology for BioTechniques

I’ve been meaning to update this website for a while, unfortunately I’ve been too busy writing articles to do so.

Among other things, I’ve been writing regular articles for the journal BioTechniques. It’s been a nice way for me to keep in touch with the latest in molecular biology, a field that I haven’t extensively written about for a few years.

I’ve written a bunch of articles for them so far, including short articles on a new way to study membrane receptors and a drug that helps worms stay young longer.

I also wrote some longer articles on the hottest topic in molecular biology right now, CRISPR-Cas9, as well as advances in how researchers photograph developing embryos and in synthetic biology, where researchers engineer cells to perform basic computational tasks.

I have several more articles on a wide variety of topics coming up. It’s just amazing to see the rate at which research techniques in the life sciences are advancing!
