Blogimmuniqués are my irregular commmuniqués about Code for life.
Over the next few weeks you’ll notice a few changes in the titles of posts, identifying the intended audience of different articles.
- Articles ending in (Not Just DNA #1), with an appropriate post number in place of ‘1’, are part of an irregular series of sorts on how our genomes that make our genomes work. The first post will be Is a genome enough (Not Just DNA #1). This isn’t a series in the true sense, but rather a theme – posts for it are likely to be irregular and the topic is taken in it’s broadest sense. Most articles in it will aimed at non-specialists – that is, everyone. More thoughts on this series in Not Just DNA #0, below.
- Articles intended for bioinformatics scientists will start with Bioinformatics: just as my previous post did: Bioinformatics: WikiProject computational biology competition 2013.
- Articles with neither a specialist focus nor a particular topical focus will have titles without appellations.
I may introduce other themes later.
Why not separate blogs?
Most people set up separate blogs for separate themes or focuses and I’d agree it usually is the best idea. Part of the reason I’m not opting for this, aside from avoiding managing several blogs, is that I like the idea of showing more than a narrow focus on one thing.
I suspect most of what non-scientists see of scientists on-line are them talking about their speciality or things close to it. It must look incredibly narrow-minded.
