Molecular Evolution -- Dr Masatoshi Nei's newly launched blog
It may be of interest to some MT readers that Dr Masatoshi Nei has just started a blog called Molecular Evolution. His plan is that he and other contributors will post a link to a paper or even a book that should be of interest to the molecular evolution community, and add a few descriptive paragraphs and perhaps a critique, in the hope that readers will engage in discussion of the points. His first post, now up, is about the genetics of caste production and altruism in bees. It will surely be an interesting blog to follow. This is hosted by one of the major-league centers of modern molecular evolutionary genetics, so it may be a bit technical for nonprofessional MT readers. But it will be up to date and thoughtful.
