In an ideal world, we would have time to read every great paper coming out in all the microbiology journals each month. Instead we have to focus our reading on the topics that directly impact our research. But reading papers from other fields can often help us to find new methods or generate ideas for our projects that we wouldn’t have thought of on our own.
To make scanning the monthly journals a little bit easier for you, I've chosen five new papers in microbiology that cover some of the exciting research going on in the community. There is so much to choose from so I narrowed my picks to articles that focused on methods development or "firsts" and tried to cover both clinical and environmental microbiology.
To see my picks and read a synopsis of each article go to the source link. Leave us a comment and let us know what you think are some key papers that have been published in 2010 that you think everyone should read.
