Good press for my lab here: Scientists On Twitter: 30 Biologists And Chemists To Follow
The list (which started out at 30 and expanded to 47) included three people from my lab: me (@phylogenomics), post doc Holly Bik (@dr_bik) and PhD student Russell Neches (@ryneches).
I like that I am the first one shown on the slideshow (though not sure if this means I am #1 on their list or just random …).
Making such lists is always a challenge and also rife with issues. There are many many great tweeters of chemistry and biology not on the list, for example. But I think they did a pretty good job covering diverse types of people here. Lots of women too, which was good to see.
Anyway – thanks to Rebecca Searles and her advisor Jason Goldman for compiling the list and making my lab look pretty good …
