We're going to kick off a new series here at Feed the data monster. We’ve spent a lot of time talking about the results of scientific research: what we know, and what we’ve learned. We’ve even told you little bit about the methods and procedures: how we learned it. Now we’re going to tell you about what we use: the tools of the trade, if you will.
Over the coming days we, the data monster feeders, will be telling you all about the materials that we use in our research; from the latest high tech devices to the most basic tools. We hope to give you a better picture of just what it's like to be a scientist. Be sure to check back every day for the latest updates!
