The best way to Learn Biotech
I am more and more asked what I’m thinking about and holding science up to date. A snapshot of my bookmarks does not turn out to be the most helpful solution.
It is a list of important genetics, pharmacy and wellness references.
The list lacks other excellent opportunities to learn: a science (and textbook) degree, seminars, interactions with scientists and scientists who currently work in space (from professors to managers).
Nevertheless, this is an almost exhaustive collection of products, available at any time, mostly free of charge, from everywhere in the world.
If I’ve missed a good source, or you’d just like to connect, feel free to reach me.
Source of Knowledge
PubMed is a science awareness bread-and-butter. Below is the real-time list of PubMed circulating articles if you are daunted by the sheer quantity of content. Each week, from the top 100, I skim abstracts and read a handful more in detail.
The true cutting edge of new data is bioRxiv and medRxiv: the newest results appear more and more in preprints months before formal publication. Free Nature, Research, Cell, PNAS and NEJM alerts I am also registered for.
Sci-Hub is a piracy website that immediately extracts virtually every research article in a free PDF — and you shouldn’t use it because Elsevier will sue me to ensure your taxpayer-funded work is inaccessible.

The CFR is the code of government guidelines. Title 21, Chapter 1 spreads pharma. It merits perusing in any event once in your life. As Thomas Cromwell said of the Tyndale Bible in Wolf Hall: “You read it, you’ll be amazed what’s not in it.”
The USPTO distributes licenses year and a half after the underlying IP recording date. Most are dreary to peruse, however, it’s perhaps the most ideal approaches to follow developing biotech. Google Patents gives the best instruments to discover and follow important licenses.
ClinicalTrials.gov is the best database of both dynamic and finished, openly or secretly financed clinical preliminaries on the planet. The Clinical Trials Register is the European identity and the WHO keeps up its own extra vault.
The SEC requires open organizations to unveil customary reports on the condition of their business—from S-1s recorded by new businesses approaching IPO to 10-Ks/10-Qs/8-Ks documented by built-up enterprises—all accessible in the free EDGAR database.
GovTrack is a theme sceptic apparatus for following government enactment, which I’ve redone to explicitly follow congressional activities identified with biopharma and human services. Watch how bills develop as they move towards a vote.
The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center is a solid open private organization between the territory of Massachusetts and the business, with a scope of valuable assets—particularly for beginning phase organizations situated in the district.
