Could this be…

…the most useless list of spellcheck suggestions of all time?


(I’m sure a tamarind genome sequence is in the works, somewhere…)

…the worst possible weather in which to be running around collecting grant signatures from PIs in three different buildings?


…a dangerous and potentially even ruinous marketing strategy in a climate like Vancouver’s?


(taken at BierCraft on Cambie Street, Vancouver)

…the most patient author in the world?

(from the consistently hilarious TOC ROFL)

…a new trend of religiously themed beer?

…a day too full of grant wrangling for proper blogging?

Why, yes! Yes to all of the above!

    Love that paper turnaround! Is that why Elsevier is so expensive?!

    • Cath@VWXYNot? says:

      well, if it takes more than two years to get an accepted paper published online, the added value must be simply phenomenal!

        Ha! I was just going to say that my favorite part was that after 11 years of review (?) it took a further 2 and a half years to publish online and another 3-15 months to print, depending on when in 2009 this finally appeared. Hope this person wasn’t counting on this for a tenure app or anything!

  3. Typewriters! *That’s* what we need to improve our next-gen sequencing throughput. Thanks, Cath!
