Molecular Ecology Resources is rapidly becoming a leading methods journal in ecology and evolution, and its sister journal Molecular Ecology is one of the main outlets for high quality research in the field.

However, we’d like to do more to support the molecular ecology community as a whole. This blog is a step in that direction- a forum for readers and contributors to the journal to discuss the latest papers and trends in the field. Future additions include a comprehensive, searchable list of computer programs and other code (e.g. R packages) useful for analysing genetic data and a site where novel lab methods can be posted and discussed.
