Tools For Getting Cutting Edge Information in Biosciences

Here are a couple of new web sites (at least new to me) that can be useful if you are researching topics in the biological sciences:

VADLO is a web search engine for biologists. Particularly useful is the PowerPoint search, which can help you find presentations on the area of research you are interested in. It also has a daily cartoon called "Life in Research". This one, for example, reveals the truth about life on Earth.

NextBio is also a bioscience search engine that aggregates information from a number of different databases, including clinical trials.

Both VADLO and NextBio are designed for scientists who want highly technical information. The search results are likely more detailed than the information a semicasual seeker is looking for.

If what you want is a general overview, Seed Magazines Cribsheets might just be what you are looking for. Here are the bioscience ones currently available:
