One of the traditions for Thanksgiving, is to express gratitude for the happenings of the previous year.
Today, the Sigma Life Science blog staff would like to give thanks for the science community. We took a chance this year on using social media to get in touch with the larger science community, and the reaction has been one of warm welcome and great discussion.
Here are just a few of the scientists who have participated in our Where Bio Begins world since January 2010! We thank them, and you all for being a part of this great year.
- Where does your bio begin? Thanks to all who entered fascinating photos, videos, and stories on how bio began for them!
