Popular Science has just launched a new science blogging network with 13 blogs. Among them are two that have a focus on microbiology, Under the Microscope by JA Tetro and Our Modern Plague by Brooke Borel. Each blog has an inaugural post that outlines the author's vision for future subject matter. For example, JA Tetro writes:
"Under The Microscope will be first and foremost, a blog about germs and immunology as they have been my primary focus of both research and communication for decades. In addition, as with any relationship therapy, each weekly article will help to “get to know your partner better”. To achieve this, I’ll be featuring articles from the literature and putting the spotlight on people who also wish to improve our connection with microbes. The topics will also span different sectors. Health will play a primary role but microbial involvement in agriculture, economic sustainability, technology, and even the economy will be discussed."
