Some readers of the Node might already be familiar with preLights, another community site run by The Company of Biologists which aims to highlight new preprints from across the biological sciences. Most of the preLights community members are early-career researchers (PhD students and postdocs), but recently, preLights has found a new role as a teaching aid. Both the NYU Peer Review and Utrecht Protein Folding and Assembly courses have started using group preprint review projects as a tool to learn about critical reading and peer review. To learn more about how preLights has helped them teach these courses, preLights spoke to Gira Bhabha at NYU, and Tessa Sinnige at Utrecht University.
