Hell freezes over – MicrobiologyBytes introduces useful new feature

Idea Last month Martin Fenner wrote about creating a reading list for his blog, Goobledygook. This was such a good idea that I decided to copy it, so now you can get a list of all the papers referred to on MicrobiologyBytes. (It doesn’t go all the way back to the beginning of time, but I will keep it up to date from now on.) Of course, you might already have your own system for filing away the references from this site, but if not, I’m making them available to you in a handy and easy to access format (if you’re not familiar with CiteULike (or Mendeley) it’s worth checking them out):

CiteULike (RSS feed)

So how might you use this? Well that’s really up to you. Whether you’re a teacher preparing a lecture or a student writing an essay, you may vaguely remember you read something about it here, you can search through this site or search through one of the reference lists, which will provide you with the full reference in a format you can insert directly in your writing.

I’m sure there will be lots of other ways this will be useful to you. Please let everyone know what they are by leaving a comment below.
