I made the same decision before, too. I try reading them in stages: find interesting articles by title, then filter them down after reading the abstracts to save them in a zotero folder, then going through them all in a first pass, then reading the important ones again a second time if needed. The stages really help me minimize the backlog of things to read

@jrhawley Thank you!
It's not perfect, but I think it's a good compromise between invested time and end result.

@FPinaMartins Excellent documentation and reliance on standard file formats! It's great to see people attending to that for their scientific software

I can't remember where I got this idea from, but I've been writing a couple sentences as an overview each paper I've read, recently. I have to say, it makes it much much easier to recall the content of a paper that way

Zotero has a really good system for this that makes it very easy to keep those notes appended to your papers, separate from the PDF

Lesson of the day: Never underestimate the power of hyperparameters.

All right, got an e-mail that my MixMatrix package is now on CRAN, if you do stuff with matrix variate distributions, especially mixture modeling or discriminant analysis!

Hi everyone!

I'm looking forward to meeting others and participating in discussions.

Do you enjoy following someone's own posts, but they boost a lot of stuff you don't care about?

Did you know you can just mute their boosts without muting their posts?

1. Go to their profile page

2. Click on the menu button (the three dots in a column)

3. Click on "Hide boosts from..."

Nearly every single genomics paper requires sequence alignment, and I can't count the number of times I've seen Bowtie or BWA mentioned in the text and no citation is provided.

These are some of the best software tools in bioinformatics available today, and people use them because of their thoroughness, flexibility, and ease of use.

Those things takes years and years to perfect, and that work deserves recognition
