Google Trends

In case you’re wondering what the hell this has to do with biology or why I’m interested, I would encourage you to go there and look at the search volumes for the following:

genetics, genomics, gene, adhd, histone, protease, physiology, histology, etc.

You’ll notice an interesting pattern, there are decreases in search volume during the summer months and at the end of December. I ask you, what does this correlate to? It’s actually a rather nice fit with when classes are going on. Compare this with a baseline with a relatively static rate of searches such as “porche” or “lexus” depending upon search volumes. (I chose high end automobiles with poor fuel economy here for a reason.) These comparative statistics allow us to see what news stories actually did generate interest in various science-related subjects when you exclude the baseline fluctuations observed as a result of being in school versus on break.

Have fun with it and share your observations.
