Life-Sciences.net - The Latest Biology Resources
(PRWEB) September 29, 2011
The Science Website Life-Sciences.net has been established to discover and share scholarly and popular content in the basic and applied life and earth sciences including agriculture, forestry, the environmental sciences, and the health sciences.
With a focus on Life-Sciences Resources, most new articles are included in the site's Biology category which currently contains almost 472,000 entries. Contributions stem from 974 scientific journals publishing articles in this field. The latest content in this category can also be accessed by the site's Upcoming Biology Articles category which features content included just minutes ago. RSS Feeds are available for both "popular" and "upcoming" biology resources.
One of the most frequently accessed articles in the Biology category is one on "Efficient and stable expression of GFP through Wheat streak mosaic virus-based vectors in cereal hosts using a range of cleavage sites: Formation of dense fluorescent aggregates for sensitive virus tracking" closely followed by "Analysis of genomic rearrangement and subsequent gene deletion of the attenuated orf virus strain D170". Some of the most recently included articles are "Phylogeny of the Diopatra generic complex with a revision of Paradiopatra Ehlres, 1887 (Polychaeta: Onuphidae)" and "Melatonin, the circadian multioscillator system and health: the need for detailed analyses of peripheral melatonin signaling" which were uploaded during September 28th.
The site's content is divided into "Digg-style" "Popular" and "Upcoming" sections. While content in the "Upcoming" section is rarely older than a few minutes, the "Popular" section contains articles submitted ca. 20-60 minutes ago. All articles can easily be bookmarked by using the AddThis Sharing buttons which include the increasingly popular Google+1 button.
Life-Sciences.net maintains a Twitter account (@Life_Sciences_) which currently features 68,700 tweets and 988 followers. The Biology category is represented by Twitter's @BiologyMag.
