|About the author: My name is Kay. I am a rather unremarkable physical chemist-turned biochemist-turned bioinformatician, who is currently using computers to answer the most fundamental questions in life science: where does all stuff come from, what does it all mean, and how can I possibly get a high-impact journal to accept one of my manuscripts.|
Is this blog anonymous? Not really. It is true that you won’t find my full name written anywhere. The reason for this is not that I want to stay in the dark – if you want to known my name, just write an e-mail to suicyte at gmx. net. The reason for not printing my name here is that I don’t want to see Google (and the rest of crowd) having automatic links between my name (and employer) and this blog. I am not totally sure why I don’t like the idea, but it is connected to the fact that getting indexed is kind of irreversible – once you’re in, you can’t get out again.
About this blog: This blog deals with matters arising in the molecular biosciences, particular in those areas I find exciting (apoptosis, regulated proteolysis, protein functional prediction, evolution, etc.)
About the title image: This is a snapshot I have taken 2003 somewhere in Tuscany. I think it was close to Monte Oliveto.
Legal stuff: Everything I write here is my own opinion, not that of my employer. Unless stated otherwise, you may use all material found here (text and images) under a CC attribution license. Obvious exceptions include material authored by others – this fact will be indicated.
Some more information on the purpose of this blog can be gathered from, my first post ever.
