Return of the Dorks

Hello dear readers!

Yes, we are posting again. And yes, we know you are surprised. (We’re surprised to find we have a blogging life again now that posts are no longer necessary for a class.) So, dear readers, breathe your sighs of relief at our return and get ready for a little something new. Yes, new. Prepare yourself for a backstory…

As we faced our last weeks of our senior year of undergrad we were faced with a list called “Things Every Biologist Should Know.” And of course, being the experienced seniors we were, we knew everything on it.

I could not even type that with a straight face.

We knew maybe half of the list. (We knew a lot more of the list if we put our minds together. But alas, life does not allow lab partners.) So we decided to review, learn, and relearn the topics on the list of things every biologist should know. And what better way to do this than blog about it? That was a rhetorical question. We know there are plenty of more exciting ways.

So join us, dear readers, as we travel through this list. We’ll cover topics like: Microscope use! Taxonomy! Plant stuff! This should be fun for everyone from new biologists to older biologists who did not pay enough attention in 201 (we’re a little guilty here) to people who know nothing about biology.

So why don't we buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
