Introducing: the new BlueSci blog network!

The new BlueSci blog network is now live! We are excited to present 5 new blogs.

The BlueSci blog network hosts talented writers who are experts in their fields. The aim of the network is to broaden and deepen BlueSci’s coverage of scientific research whilst bringing you exciting, cutting-edge and accessible science.

Before I present the blogs, I would especially like to thank James Stevens, BlueSci’s Webmaster. This project could not have happened without his efforts and he deserves all the kudos for doing a fantastic job in setting up the blogs.

And now for the blogs and bloggers:
