Keep on top of breaking news in the life sciences with Biology News Net. This comprehensive site pulls news from a variety of sources—including Reuters, Associated Press, NIH, Nature, Scientific American, among others.
News headlines can be browsed by filtered categories of interest including Aids and HIV, Bioinformatics, Gene Therapy, Microbiology, Stem Cell Research, (etc).
If you are accustomed to using a feed-reader such as Bloglines or others, then feeds to each of the news categories can be selected.
The site also supplies a web board to current job opportunities in biology/life sciences (most in academia—at the time of this blog posting).
