I like to provide some idea on how I choose the stories posted in this blog.
First, I try to find discoveries that are real breakthroughs and not just incremental increases in knowledge, most of them published in high profile, high impact science journals. I typically post the press releases on these discoveries and try to link to the original journal article.
Second, I limit my blogs to several key technological areas, which I believe will have the greatest impact towards biosingularity, such as: Tissue, genetic and gadget oriented bioengineering, application of nanotechnology to biology, programming biological systems (stem cells, synthetic biology, biohacking, neuroprogramming).
I also focus on general medical and biological advances on understanding genetic code, stem cell biology, aging, immune system, nervous system, infectious organisms and cancer. I will also less frequently post major breakthroughs in other medical fields.
I believe breakthroughs in these fields will help us better to decode the biological programs and provide tools to reprogram or engineer biological systems. I also have better knowledge in these topics, which allows me to better judge the importance of the advances.
Of course as new technologies lead to new fields I will expand the categories that will encompass wider range of biological topics.
In addition, I hope to post both my commentaries or opinions regarding biological advances and about issues such as human life extension and transhumanism.

Cool blog ..
Great work …. keep rocking 🙂
I am a also a microbiologist working in the area clinical laboratory science. Your blog is an invaluable addition to the field of molecular biology and its medical relationships. Keep up the excellent work.
I think of life as digital information on a polymer chain,creatively interacting within an infinite membrane. It is the creation of knowledge,and the sharing of knowledge,that will remove the destructive part of evolutions creativity. Excellent blog,the use of video is inspirational.
Very nice blog, well organized and full of great research. Thanks for your work. My blog is only a month old and I am looking for good science blogs to study. I am focused on the cancer research area.
Thanks for this site, but I have a problem.
How to download these 3D animation as I need this resource for educational issuues.
You carry many UCSD news releases on your terrific blog and we’re very pleased to provide that content to you. We would like to work more closely with you because we recognize the value and importance of your blog. What source do you currently use to access UC San Diego news releases? Is there a better way for us to provide our news releases to you?
