Strong Points: Useful links
Weak Points: News not updated
If there is a biotech topic crying out for a good blog, it is proteomics. Aiming to be at the hub of this new field, myProteome.com brings to the plate a format like that of Mass Spectrometry Blog, mixing news with relevant links. In the case of myProteome.com, the links shine more brightly than the news. In fact, the news coverage seemed to be at least average but then stopped in January, 2006. I’m not sure what that means. While it was active, the news section had potential with listings both by date and by topic. The links span a wide range of topics, from 2-D gel databases to a repository of digital information for proteomics. While myProteome.com is not as solid as the Mass Spectrometry Blog, it does have its bright spots. Let’s hope it is not about to be canned.
