A blogging break for Christmas and the New Year

Thanks for reading the science blog this year. Apart from a couple of days in the office between Christmas and New Year, I’m away until January 11, so the blog should start up properly again that week.

The world of research

The science blog is no longer updated but it remains open as an archive.

Clive Cookson, the FT's science editor, picks out the research that everyone should know about, in fields from astronomy to zoology. He also discusses key policy issues, from R&D funding to science education. He'll cover the weird and wonderful, as well as the serious side of science.
