Season’s greetings from F1000!

Posted Dec 21 2012 1:02pm

We’ve had a lot of fun this week in the F1000 office taking some festive photos. We’re quite proud of the F1000 finches Christmas re-enactment (compare its likeness to the original on the F1000Prime front page!).

We reenacted the classic F1000 finches mascots picture, but Christmassed-up.

From everyone at F1000, thanks for your support over the last 12 months — and especial thanks to our Faculty Members for their contributions. We look forward to keeping you up to date with the latest and hottest papers in the life sciences in the next twelve months. In the meantime, here’s a special Twitter round-up for the last twelve months — we’ve chosen our favourite papers/tweets from each month of the year — along with some more festive photos.

Happy holidays and a very happy New Year, one and all!
