Are you still getting your breaking science news from the front pages of Nature? That is so 1999. These days, scientists do what the rest of the world does: They turn to blogs. And, as with everything on the internet, science blogs exist in (over)abundance. Some are run by professional journalists at respected publications like Science and Nature, some are contributions from people working in a lab and some are just the musings of anonymous bloggers. So, which blogs should you add to your daily web-surfing routine? We’ve compiled a collection that we think is worth checking out.
