Today I read the changelog of Python 3.8, and found the walrus operator and the equal specifier for f-strings, and I feel at home like in the good old days with Perl :)

Biodegradation of waste PET: A sustainable solution for dealing with plastic pollution. 

Ranting again on about authors who publish improvements of our method that are very similar to some of our own improvements that we already published to years ago, without giving us proper credit. pubpeer.com/publications/35AD2

Single-molecule sensing of peptides and nucleic acids by engineered aerolysin nanopores 

Ten simple rules for providing optimal administrative support to research teams

The domestic in Europe came from Near-East and Anatolia, but had most of its genes replaced by those of the local European wild , except for few exceptions such as the coat color MC1R. Whether this was intentional from the farmers or not is unknown. This is the result of a large collaboration study published in this week's issue of . pnas.org/content/116/35/17231

For many years, me and my colleagues have been improving scientific methods using intuition, trial-and-error, and iteration. But now, with computer-driven lab automation we can do better. Today we just sent to the repository our latest work on that topic: biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/73

The depot: 73 million scientific journal articles prepared for text mining in a 576-terabyte storage facility of the Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi, . Mankind's knowledge at the reach of AI. A very interesting article in this week: nature.com/articles/d41586-019

Starting to learn the language. As a R programmer, I feel at home with Julia's paradigms for types, method dispatch, and data frames. Now let's see if it is a good replacement for shell scripts when they start to be more than one or two pages long.

RADICL-seq, a technology for analysis of chromatin-RNA interactions developed while I was working at , is out in ! biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/68

See you tomorrow at the 13th International Workshop on Advanced () in . I will present a poster about our work in progress on extracting high-molecular weight DNA with a .
