As a scientist, I feel communication with the public is an ever increasing necessity. With the media spinning stories which can somewhat alienate scientists, it is an important part of a scientists job to be able to explain the truth of the science behind the story. Topics such as crop genetic modification, for example, have caused a great stir amongst the public with media articles stating that they'll end us all; I've started a blog, 'Bio-know' to perhaps balance the books on these stories and give a balenced opinion from a scientist in training. If you have any questions or scientific stories you'd like me to discuss on my blog, please don't hesitate to send me and email at
