About This Blog

Hello.  Welcome to Cyme & Cystidium.

In an attempt to be a little more proactive about outreach I’ve started this blog.

It serves a function for me to communicate research ideas, a place to record my thoughts about research papers that I find interesting, a place to re-post academic meeting information, and just plain discuss science that really excites me.  I’ve been inspired to start this blog as a way to contribute to the online dialog existing in the sciences.

There are many great science blogs out there – some of which have links posted here – and I have been inspired and enlightened by them.  I hope this blog does a little of that for you.

The name of this blog comes from two of my favorite morphological descriptors from the plant and fungal kingdoms.
