research woes 

The classic bioinformatics pipeline:

step 1: be excited about new normalization method that could help with bad dataset

step 2: spent 2 weeks implementing it

step 3: realize that it outputs suspicious results and discard it

research woes 

@drdrago Definitely this, probably ~60% of the time. for me.

Another 30%: someone needs to make a normalization method for this group of problems...but it ain't gonna be me!

The last 10%: I guess I have to make this method myself and tell everyone around me why it needs to be done so that they don't think I'm just doing nothing.
