Do you have an easy way to format a thesis? A better reference manager than Endnote? A place to order cheap labware? We want to hear from you. Post your top tips here labelled as 'tips' and whatever else you feel is appropriate. Or, if you are trawling away in the dark, murky waters of your PhD ocean (at the risk of pushing a metaphor!) search the 'tips' labels in this site so you too might be able to find some nuggets of light....
The Editors are two young scientists who work in the Faculty of Veterinary Science at the University of Sydney. They started a science blog because, let's face it, they are a bit nerdy, and also enjoy writing. They want other postgrads from the Vet Faculty publish stuff here too- especially if it's good!
Camilla is researching venom genes in the platypus, because it was the most obscure thing she could think of and it's good to talk about at dinner parties.
Kao is working on racehorses, because that way going to the races is 'studying'.
This month's horoscope
Gemini (May 21 - June 14)
Mid autumn will find you in shorter days, longer nights and most likely searching for your damart. Your wild, passionate side may be exercised by the current passage of Mars through Mercury, though you will also experience strange lethargy around 9am daily with a sudden interest in your finger-nails. On the home front, beware all food-stuffs bearing green spots. You will find romance in strange places and should avoid making any snap judgements, especially involving chocolate. Your lucky book bag is recyclable, your lucky coffee is latte, and your lucky animal is the naked mole rat.
