During a recent chat with my adviser, she casually mentioned reading about a new study on "the GTPase blog." To which I replied, "There's a GTPase blog?!" I think she was pleased to know more than I did about some aspect of science blogging. So, cheers to my adviser for inspiring this post!
GTPases: From the Bench is a blog by Dr. Anna Delprato that focuses on all things GTPase. Since I'm doing my dissertation on a small G protein (the coolest small G protein... but of course, I'm biased), I'm obviously all over this. In addition to blogging on peer-reviewed research, Dr. Delprato posts information about upcoming conferences that might be of interest to fellow GTPase enthusiasts. You can also follow Dr. Delprato on Twitter (@Gproteins). I admire her dedication to this protein family, and look forward to reading future posts!
Cecily Strong crushes it at the White House Correspondents' Dinner - Not since Colbert's roast of GWB in 2006 has a comedian's Nerd Prom monologue been so outrageously funny. Obama's bit was pretty awesome, too.
