As noted by, well, everybody, The Scientist is assembling a list of the bioblogosphere’s best. Here is my list of favourite blogs — this isn’t exhaustive, however, as there are many that I read regularly in addition to this (see my blogroll for more). These are just the ones that I follow most closely.
- Pharyngula — PZ Myers’s monster chimaera between hardcore objective science and stinging anti-theism.
- Sandwalk — Online home of Larry Moran, everyone’s favourite curmudgeonly Canuck.
- The Loom — Proof courtesy of Carl Zimmer that science writing can be consistently top-notch.
- Evolution…Not Just a Theory Anymore — Although I don’t care for the name (evolution will always be both a fact and a theory), Greg Laden continually offers excellent insights.
- ERV — Sarcastic, merciless, and never boring, and she knows a heck of a lot about ERVs and HIV.
- John Hawks Weblog — Interesting, accessible discussions about things anthropological.
- Aetiology — Tara Smith’s launching pad for discussions on evolution and health.
- Evolgen — Thoughts on evolutionary genetics from a grad student who knows his material.
- Laelaps — Home of Brian Switek, one of the hardest working bloggers around, who produces top quality essays on important topics in evolutionary science.
- The DNA Network — A great collection of blogs on the subjects of genetics, genomics, and medicine. Features great blogs like Eye on DNA, My Biotech Life, and ScienceRoll.
- Sex, Genes & Evolution — John Logsdon’s blog about, well, sex, genes, and evolution; great stuff, and I wish there were more frequent posts.
- Interrogating Nature — High end contributions from Chris Harrison, a bright, young scientist-in-training.
- The Tree of Life — Genomics plus opinions from Jonathan Eisen, good stuff.
- Barcode of Life Blog — Superb clearinghouse by Mark Stoeckle on information regarding the ever-expanding Barcode of Life initiative.
- EvolutionBlog — Plenty of interesting insights from Jason Rosenhouse on evolution.
