Big news, everyone!

There’s a new science blog in town. Er. Online. Nothing in Biology Makes Sense! is what happened when I asked a bunch of my friends—collaborators, “sibling” grad students, and, yes, my brother the medical student—to pitch in their time and expertise in a collaborative science blog. Some of us have a lot of experience writing about science online, and some of us are trying it out for the first time.

The site’s name, of course, is a tongue-in-cheek reference to Theodosius Dobzhansky’s famous statement that “Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.” In that spirit, I’m hoping the diverse expertise of contributors to Nothing in Biology means that we’ll help each other make sense of the living world, together.

(I’ll continue posting here at D&T, too, though probably at the same reduced frequency I’ve managed lately. Nothing in Biology is a group blog; D&T is still my personal home on the web.)

We launch today with a post on the importance of evolution in human medicine—have a read, make a comment, and, if you like what you read, like us on Facebook and share the link! ◼
