There are a lot of interesting blogs that I need to catch up with, so here we go. First off is On Pharma, which focuses on the manufacturing end of things, with a lot of good stuff about FDA approvals and the clinical world. Note this recent post on the "cGMP Priesthood", which is something I fortunately don't have to deal with.

Life of a Lab Rat is a view from the bench in Sydney (no, not the beach, the bench), and Pipette Monkeys provides one from Heidelberg. Is This Thing On? has a biotech/bioinformatic perspective, and I've been wondering when someone was finally going to invent the Eastern Blot. And finally, the group at Nobel Intent is always worth checking.

Update: And how could I forget The Chemblog?

There are periodic attempts to claim "Eastern blot" for various post-translational modifications, but it never really caught on.

You would not want to know how often I get visitors through Google looking for "what is an eastern blot".

Boy, I read about five posts about "cGMP" on that site before I realized that it wasn't talking about cGMP. I was wondering why I hadn't heard before about how important this particular second messenger was as a drug target.
