Weak Points: Dull in Places
Looking at this website reminds me of the tremendous amount of progress we’ve made at the biological and computational level. Who would have thought 20 years ago that there would be a discipline of nuclear receptor signaling and that scientists worldwide would be able to access information about it from the comfort of their home computers? Well, that’s the way it is today, and who can’t say hooray to that? At the site, visitors will discover general information like meeting dates, as well as open access datasets, a nifty narrated/animated review of the topic, and an open access journal (Nuclear Receptor Signaling) serving the research community. Topic areas of the journal include Perspectives, Methods, Reviews, and Most Viewed. This is a dandy idea and a great service to the nuclear receptor community. Kudos!
