Here I muse about stuff directly or not-so-directly related to what we do in my lab.
There are two types of posts: streamlined ones for researchblogging.org and not-so-streamlined ones for brain dump. I use labels - do take advantage of that!

the ass-backwards rules
1) If the project starts ass-backwards, it will continue ass-backwards regardless what you do. In the eventual publication all the figures will be presented ass-backwards, with the ones done last coming first.
2) The reason why we, humans, can not help but start projects ass-backwards is because we are deuterostomes: we are simply made that way (see below).
