Best Science Apps
Feed your brain. Not the one between your ears, but the one inside your pocket or purse. Your smart phone becomes smart—science smart—only when it is loaded with the right apps. So let it sample items from GEN’s Best Science Apps, a digital buffet of sorts.
Alternating print issues of Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News serve just a few apps at a time. But here ALL of the apps from the Best Science Apps column are arrayed, issue by issue. (To view apps reviewed in the current issue, click here.)
The Best Science Apps column carries reviews written by Dr. Taralyn Tan, a curriculum fellow in neurobiology at Harvard Medical. If you are aware of an app that will keep Taralyn focused on the auxiliary brain, and not the real brain, you are welcome to send your suggestions directly to her.
