    Sally,
    Do you think there are social media tools that might be helpful in biomarker research?
    Thank you!

    Hi Berci,
    I think one of the things that strikes me is how much data is slowly beginning to coalesce in the area of biomarkers.
    Tools that I personally find useful are things like
    – Delicious Tag clouds around keywords to see what others are sharing in the area
    – Twitter for search (found several important things on KRAS in colon or lung cancer in the past)
    – Friendfeed (a mine of information in various science groups)
    Other things I find useful are Google Docs for collaborating and sharing of information between people remotely, Zotero for article and paper management, which can then be added to Google Docs and shared.
    New web 2.0 search tools abound such as Surchur and others – I use them to find new stuff on biomarkers every week, for example.
    Twitter also tells me when people are hosting a webinar on cancer biomarkers that I might be interested in listening to… the list is endless.
    If anyone has others to share, please do add them below.
