I love my free Nature Methods subscription. It allows me to get my hands on a paper journal, which I rarely get to do these days, and the content is actually pretty marvellous.
This month there’s a new technique for enzymatic assembly of DNA molecules from the Venter Institute, a standardised methodology for proteomics sample preparation, and a great technology feature from Nathan Blow about new proteomics techniques, including surface plasmon resonance (about which I knew nothing before today). Not to mention cool pictures of mice having light shone on their brains.
You can still apply for a free subscription, and if you are eligible to do so (individuals in North America and Europe involved in research within the life sciences or chemistry), I would urge you to.
