yvi: a mouse on top of test tubes (Science - Mouse)

Since this community has now existed for over a week and already has over 60 subscribers, how about an introduction thread? I will likely repeat this a few days/weeks after the star of open beta, but it can't hurt to do it now as well.

Anyway, hi, I am your geeky neighborhood moderator/maintainer. You can call me Yvi. I am 25 years old and am just beginning my Master thesis at a German university. I officially study Biology and also have a Bachelor's degree in that, but haven't seen the insides of a lab in a while - I'd probably break everything in sight. Instead, I work at the intersection of Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Biology, spending most of my time looking a sequences and scripting (as shown by the fact that I just created [community profile] python...)

My personal interests are a bit wider, though. I am interested in most aspects of Biology (evolutionary, neuro, developmental, etc.) and also very interested in Physics and Astronomy. My non-fiction book shelf is very full :) I also have about two dozen blogs with a scientific content on my Google Reader and spend too much time reading it.

So if you want to, tell us a bit about where you're from, what you are doing, what you are interested in etc.

Hi, I wrote up a brief summary (with pictures!) of a cool science panel about making weird edible gels at a scifi con I went to recently, and it just struck me that you guys might be interested. (Hard to tell what's an appropriate post with such a new comm!)
