I think that for a professional is very important to follow blogs focused on his own speciality, it is a good way to learn without too much effort and to stay updated. Which bioinformatics-related blogs do you usually read?

note: there is a similar question posted on stackoverflow.

ok, I have changed the title to the plural form: "blogs" instead of "blog". So, provide us all your favorite links! :-)

Why is this tagged off-topic? Can somebody explain this, please.

Shameless plug for the bioinformatics subreddit (of which I am a moderator).

Since this was chosen as the top answer, I've added a link to BioStar in the sidebar of the bioinformatics subreddit.

There are so many great blogs out there, I love Openhelix blog, and many others already listed. But reading all blogs takes ages, though I have everything fed into my Google Reader.

That's the reason why last week we started our new community-based project biotricks.net, which is a meta-blog linking out to interesting tips, tricks, and tools for bioinformaticians but also hosts own articles, scripts, code lines, etc.

At the moment it is quite basic, but like BioStar it will become more interesting the more people are using it.

So please support and contribute to this project. Thanks.

I linked it on the bioinformatics subreddit (http://redd.it/i64rn). Hopefully it will get some exposure there. Success with the project!

Hi everyone, slightly unrelated note. Remember to vote on posts, questions if you like them. That is the way to accumulate reputation that in the end allows the users to moderate content (see FAQ for more info). Also it is recommended to select the best answer for a question.

A lot has been written above, so I'll add something different. One reason to follow a blog is to be a part of the conversation or simply to "listen in." This is why we go to conferences. And so, I think that one should also be on Twitter in order to do the same - listen and add to the conversation. Clearly, Twitter and a blog are different formats and come to you in different ways, but they are both useful tools in getting you connected to other people and their ideas, as well as putting yourself into the conversation.

Well, more than "favourite" blog I can list the ones I like (this is, the ones that passed the filter and I'm still following). Apart from Giovanni's and Pierre's, and other more technical blogs already mentioned, I'm interested in the sequencing technologies, personal genomes and publication ethics. This is then my small list:

http://nsaunders.wordpress.com/ - Bioinformatics and other stuff

http://cameronneylon.net/ - On communicating science

http://www.genomesunzipped.org/ - On personalized Genomics

Can't help to add a shameless plug to our group's blog on Computational OncoGenomics: http://bg.upf.edu/blog/
