Cells Weekly #15

Welcome to your weekly dose of cell and molecular biology. As always, I’ll choose select posts from blogs that I read – please do contact me with specific posts that you’d like “Cells Weekly” to link to, or topical blog discussions that I might be missing. And of course, please link to the “Cells Weekly” to share it with others.

First, there’s the growing “basic concepts” meme that’s been floating around, with a list being maintained by Wilkins.

Among these concepts, there are two that I’ll draw special attention to. The first is really a series, summarized at A Blog Around the Clock: Teaching Biology 101.

The second is a discussion of how to define a gene, and what the importance of genes is. Read more at Pharyngula, Sandwalk, Evolgen, Discovering Biology in a Digital World, and Greg Laden.

Check out the other discussions, such as those on speciation, too.

Now on to the rest of the cell blogging for the week:

Also, this week will be one for hard-blogging scientists and about just science, so expect the next weekly dose of cell to be extra special.
