Another excellent show, thank you both. Quick tip regarding preprint servers, if you haven’t mentioned it on any of the TwiX shows picks yet (I can’t remember it being mentioned), check out prepubmed , on http://www.prepubmed.org/, a search engine for several preprint servers, including bioRxiv. Useful resource!
