I’m going to talk about only one amazing tools that I’ve been using for the last 2 and half years – RSS feed. I was writing about it here and noticed it here . But for any of you who still don’t know what it is and how it works, I’d highly recommend to watch this video and read this to learn about RSS feed.

RSS feed is a tool which allows me to read all of news, last publications, blog posts updates based on my professional interest from one place. So I’m using it as an informational filter.

I’d like to share with you some (21) feeds that I read in my “stem cell” folder. I hope this information could be useful for you being updated and indicate new sources of information.


1. PubMed: “stem cell”
read how to get RSS feed of your query to your reader

besides feed from PubMed I subscribed to 3 journals separately:
2. Cell Stem Cell RSS
3. Regenerative Medicine RSS
4. Cytotherapy RSS


1. Cell Therapy News RSS
2. Nature Reports Stem Cells RSS
3. ScienceDaily: “stem cells” RSS
4. New Scientist: stem cells RSS
5. Stem Cell Patents RSS


1. the Niche RSS
Nature-based blog provided one of the best analytics
2. Cell Therapy Blog RSS
blog of Lee Buckler – best cell therapy business-analytics
3. Cancer Stem Cell News RSS
blog of Jim Till – news collection about cancer stem cells
4. Adult stem cell research RSS
blog of Don Margolis – best collection clinical cases of magic recovery after “adult stem cell injections” around the world
5. Stem Cell Digest RSS
stem cell market and companies – news and business analytics

dead blogs (I doubt they will awake but still worth to read old content)

1. Regeneration Station RSS
blog of Jon Rowley provided the best analytics about regenerative medicine industry and career in the field
2. stem-cell notebook: studying normal and pathological niches… RSS
3. the Stem Cell Blog RSS

RSS feed generated by me:

1. FriendFeed: Regenerative Medicine RSS
highly recommended collection of breaking news, links, interviews, videos and discussions
also you can find it here
2. Connotea – nanog’s scientific bookmarks RSS
my library of scientific publications, filtered from PubMed

and of course –

Do you use Google Reader to tack your RSS feeds? I am using it and it’s starting to get overwhelming (850 some odd new items today!)

do you mean my RSS coming from Connotea and FriendFeed? No I don’t track them, it’s too much. But if somebody will do so I don’t think Reader will get overwhelming, because it give you about 3-5 items per day for Connotea and about 3 per day for FriendFeed Regmed, but it’s highly filtered and user-trusted information.

Its easier to generate RSS feed from and plug them into google reader. That way you can create feeds of people you know and subjects you are interested in.

thanks for indication to,
I compared search results sorted by date of query “stem cell” in both PubMed and Hubmed and it’s very different. As far as I know Hubmed generating results based on PubMed search, so it’s quite strange.
Maybe I’ll generate RSS from both and will compare.
