w00t! Post selected for Open Laboratory 2009
My post The Incredible Shrinking Genome was selected for publication in Open Laboratory 2009. The Open Laboratory books are anthologies of 52 posts from various science blogs selected annually by a panel of judges . This year the judges waded through 470 740 nominations (thanks for catching this Bora), so it is great to be selected! How on Earth did they go through 740 posts?
You must buy the book once it’s out, office and home copies. Don’t forget your spouse, lover, friends, colleagues, children and pet hamster, for they will all be deeply offended if you do not get them a copy of Open Laboratory 2009, which may have serious ramifications. I will link to the book once it is out, in a month or so. In the meantime, you should seriously consider purchasing the 2008, 2007 and 2006 editions.
