Keeping tabs on the research endeavors and findings from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) is much easier with Biomedical Beat. Started in January 2005, the publication serves as a monthly digest of research news from NIGMS, and it's a fine resource for scientists, science journalists, and those who just might be interested in such information. Each issue contains four or five short summary articles on the results of different research projects that have received funding from the NIGMS, and recent pieces have looked into the worlds of drug-resistant bacteria, iron deficiencies, and commercial chemical products. After reading these short summaries, visitors can click on links leading to full scientific reports, lab homepages, and article abstracts. Visitors can also check out their "Cool Image Gallery", which contains intriguing images which have appeared in Biomedical Beat. Finally, visitors can also sign up to receive their RSS feed.
