The Rachomics Blog has started!
I’ve been wanting to set up a blog for about, oh, 12 years or so. I was previously a scientist within the UK scientific civil service so blogs weren’t exactly something that were welcomed.
These days, I run a molecular diagnostics company (Taxa Genomics) and my collaborative work with the Isle of Man Department for Health and Social Care during #COVID19 has prompted me to look again at finding the time to do some science outreach. Plus, 93% of you said you’d read it. I’m going to hold you to that.
If I set up a blog explaining how the Isle of Man #COVID19 test worked (ie the science behind it) would you read it? Trying to figure out if I really have time to do a bit of outreach!

Let’s face it, I love science and think that everyone else should too, given how much it impacts our daily lives (even if we don’t realise it some times).
I promise I won’t swear (too much).
