My first second authorship

After a year or so of trying to get this published, my colleague finally succeeded – which is good news for me since I’m the second author (I built the software the research is based on).

Association of poly-purine/poly-pyrimidine sequences with meiotic recombination hot spots

Now I just have to start publishing some first authorship papers.

Edit: Booyah! The same day I write this post I get a response on my phenology modelling paper where I’m first author. The reviewers comments are just minor fixes to my writing – so once I’ve made the changes, I’ve got a paper. This makes me very happy. Although I’ll still be cautious until the paper is actually in print.

Wicked! Well done Dr Pitt. Now if I could only understand the paper… I need a Joel-o-translator.

Congratulations, I’m sure you can give us a summary (with pictures) to explain what those big long words mean 🙂

What’s the use of being a doctor unless you are also a ninja?

Good point Squirk. I shall have to also train in Ninjitsu once I’ve finished studying.
