Futures in Biotech

Nice to hear some intelligent discussion about Biotech in the blogosphere (I don't like that word). Leo Laporte and Marc Pelletier have a new blog at
Also with a new podcast. There are only two show so far, but the first was on protein folding. Nice to hear, considering my main research thrust right now is protein fold prediction by threading techniques. They spend time talking about the 'big picture' stuff, which you can forget about when you are down in the trenches trying to get stuff to work for your PhD research. I spend most of my days worrying about debugging bad code in my threading software, or how I can improve my technique to make my results look better. I never really spend any time thinking about how my research could ever be used by anybody.
