    There is probably somebody at your library who can tell you how to 
   do a literature search (e.g. a librarian), and what tools           
   the library has for the search--e.g. Medline? (online or Ovid disk)
    e.g. plain old paper Index Medicus?

    See what the latest published work is, and then ask the group if
    anyone knows of something beyond this, not published yet (but be
    sure to tell us at what point you have reached in your reading).

Or some other topic that worth  to focus on? thank you!!
    It's like Beauty: in the eye of the beholder!  What's worth
    YOUR interest and time?  (Or do you want to know what the
    latest fashion is?  Don't bother: by the time you learn
    about it, it will be out of date; people will think some
    other topic is the hot topic.  Best to follow your own heart.)

    HOWEVER, you might want to browse in a "generalist" journal,
    like _Science_  or _Nature_ , particularly the first dozen pages
    or so.
