About the Blog

Welcome to Life Science Exploration

This blog is the answer to my insatiable curiosity and desire to learn more about our weird and wonderful world and my attempt to share it with others. It also gives me much-needed writing practice and serves as a showcase of my writing.

The thought of venturing into the unknown excites me. Living in a world that’s full of science at work, I often wonder about the “why” and “how” of things.

I am interested in how humans change the environment to suit their needs and how this affects animals and other creatures. Considering how much of our wildlife is under threat from human activities, I believe conservation is paramount, if we want our future generations to enjoy and benefit from all that Earth has to offer.

Also, I am fascinated by emerging infectious diseases, and their animal origins. So you might see some posts about them.

The blog will cover interesting findings from infectious diseases and the environment to plants and other living creatures.

There are hundreds of journal articles published in science journals every day, but only a few are chosen to be reported to the public – many interesting articles are simply ignored. I will find interesting research to cover in my posts but because I do not have subscription to the major journals, I will cover mostly open-access articles. My hope is to make science accessible to everyone.

My references will be cited at the end or I’ll try to link to them directly in case you want to read the original papers or just read more about the subject.

I will try to be less technical as I want to reach out to everyone regardless of their background. However, if it gets boring or technical, please do let me know.

I am new to the science blogosphere, so bear with me.

My aim is to enlighten you, give you something to think about, and leave you intrigued – hopefully all at the same time.

Thanks for visiting and do leave your valuable feedback!

  1. This is a nice and very promising science blog. Writing is clear and posts cover very interesting topics. My favorite is the one about the Alaskan Beetle Larvae turning into glass – I never heard of it before. I’ll keep reading.

    • Thank you! I’m really glad that you find my posts interesting. I was also amazed to learn about the unique adaptation of the Alaskan Beetle Larvae. In fact, I later learned that this technique – of turning into glass – is currently under research for use in storing organs for transplantation. Nature never ceases to amaze us!
