After spending one and a half year on twitter (https://twitter.com/C_Blei) I decided that its finally time to at least arrange a blog for posting comments, news or random thoughts which need more than 140 characters. I will try to stay away from rants… Instead, you will find here from time to time some news about my research, other peoples research or whatever thoughts I think I should share with everybody. Blogs will usually focus on evolutionary biology and genomics of invertebrates (mostly Annelida and Hymenoptera) and bacterial endosymbionts (Wolbachia and friends!). Phylogenetic and genomic methods will be also of interest. So, stay tuned for updates at this place. For those who are curious, but afraid to google it, Bembecinus is a genus of apoid wasps (Hymenoptera, Aculeata).
