Liverpool Life Sciences UTC Blog by Prof Dave Hornby

Recently became aware (by the magic of Twitter) of the Blog run by Prog Dave Hornby at the Liverpool Life Sciences University Technical College.

It has some interesting stuff on it.....

How fish make their own antifreeze

An Interview with (Nobel Prize winning) Sir Richard Roberts who talks about GMO, pointing out that the opposition of some groups to GM organisms such as Golden Rice is preventing their introduction. It would have been nice, however, to have seen him questioned on some of the more dubious GMO business practices of Monsanto et al.

How fluorescent genes have transformed research by allowing target molecules to be visible under microscopy.

Lots of important points in this post about infectious diseases.

Some interesting comments see here, and here on things to consider when starting up a life science business
