Labs in lockdown II

Posted by on March 25th, 2020

A couple of weeks ago we posted a collection of tweets from scientists about COVID-19. A lot has changed since that time – we in the UK are two days in to our own lock down, along with many parts of the world – and so we thought it would be a good time to[…]

Time to crack coding?

Posted by on March 24th, 2020

As labs shut down in response to the coronavirus pandemic, some might be unsure of what to do next. Even if your project doesn’t have a computational (i.e. bioinformatic) aspect, knowing some code can still be useful to present your research. Importantly, learning to code is particularly well-suited for the current situation, because there are[…]
