What the staff is reading


At ASBMB Today, we love to read as much as we love to write. We also love to talk about what we’re reading. Our office is always buzzing (whether it’s with not-so-hushed voices or the ping of email delivery notifications) as we share the inspiring, emotionally compelling, fascinating or simply funny articles or videos we can’t put down, stop watching or scrolling through. So, we figured, why not keep the conversation going? Here’s a compilation of what our staff was reading last month. Enjoy and feel free to tweet us your thoughts.
