Breaking (ahem): I have f i n a l l y joined twitter. Although some of my misgivings about this medium were rapidly confirmed, I hope it will be a useful tool to keep abreast of new findings and also alert colleagues of what comes out of our lab. Find me on: @Michiel_Vos_010. Although I feel blogging is not the optimal way to engage (I simply do not have enough time to write ‘proper’ blog posts), I will keep posting about PhD opportunities and new papers here (and post pics of Cornish underwater life on my other blog).
Also, I just did a little fun ‘Microbe of the Month’ feature in Trends in Microbiology on my favourite bacterium Myxococcus xanthus, see here. A fascinating bug!
