New proteomics discussion board?

I think the list of things I want to blog about right now is expanding at nearly the same rate as the amyloid plaques in my brain!

This is a quick one I can check off the PostIt note(s!). A postdoc in our field (anonymous?) has proposed a new central proteomics forum.  I know we have a few here and there (ABRF, sharedproteomics, BRIMS) but they are kind of disjointed. This one is hosted by StackExchange. It has a friendly interface and can be directly linked to your Google or LinkedIn or other similar accounts.

StackExchange is big enough as a discussion board in general that it can be supported technically.  There is nothing on the site at the present but it might be another good way to get connected to people with the expertise to help you when you're stuck.

You can check it out here!

  1. I would like to have a proteomics forum that rewards users for contributing quality answers. Biostars is similar and works well. The proposed forum could, too.
