Some time ago, I posted a poll here at MolBio Research Highlights asking people to vote for the topic they thought was going to be hottest in molecular biology in a few years [See The hottest molbio topics: the next few years]. Some of the areas listed in that poll are hot even right now, but may continue to rise in the next couple of years.
The poll is now over and I wanted to share the results with you in an attractive way, so I decided to accompany these results with blog posts discussing them. These posts will be written by experts in the respective areas of research. In order to do this, I asked a few scientists, which are also notorious bloggers, to answer a simple question: “why do you think people voted for that specific field?”. Further, I encouraged them to extend their posts to include and discuss anything else they wanted, within that respective field.
So without further ado, here are the poll results:
Stay tuned for the posts discussing these results which will be appearing here soon. David García from You'd Prefer An Argonaute will be talking about “Regulatory RNAs” while Keith Robison from Omics! Omics! will be discussing “New DNA sequencing technologies and postgenomics”.
Do you want to talk about the other fields listed and get your post featured here in MolBio Research Highlights? Feel free to send me an email!
