Frank Sinatra, Stephen Hawking, Marie Curie and Stephen Fry all owe their blue eyes to a genetic mutation that likely occurred between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, researchers say.

First of all a very happy new year to everyone!

For the past several days I was preoccupied with a good many assignments that kept me away from posting articles on the blog. But the burden of many of them have been shed, and I hope I would be able to resume my activities on this blog.

Today’s post is a short one and talks about the website I created one year back. The site is aimed at biotechnology and molecular biology scholars in particular, and biology students in general, and as the introduction to the website on the homepage states “A dedicated resource serving the molecular biology and biotechnology research fraternity”.

This website is the outcome of a little bit of HTML and CSS I learnt during my free time (a luxurious item). Yeah, I know, it is not good looking, and looks could kill. But, I feel, it is a useful collection of links/online resources important for any biotechnology and biology scholar. It has been divided into sections like Arabidopsis, Databases, Caenorhabditis, Tutorials, Protocols, Humans, Microarrays, etc. A toolbar has also been provided. You can download the toolbar here.

Yesterday, a new section on IMMUNOLOGY was added. Click here. The section has links to many useful online utilities associated with immunology, like immunobiology databases, immunoinformatics, etc. The URL is http://biophilessurf.info/immuno.html

I hope you would like the site, and more importantly find it useful.

Any comments, suggestions, ideas, and, of course, criticism, is always welcome.

And no, the blog would not talk of this website again and again. Only on occasions when important updates are available or a new section is added.
