Sometimes as a graduate student it is easy to get hyper focused on inane details of your project. To help keep everything in life in perspective, check out this animation illustrating the smallest to the biggest conceivable things in (and even outside) our Universe.
Enjoy, don’t forget to check out the forum on the Social Page for BMCDB Graduate student events this summer!
In the latest edition of PLoS Computational Biology, Philip Bourne and Virginia Barbour wrote an editorial, posting 10 rules for building and maintaining your scientific reputation.
These 10 rules are:
- Think before you act.
- Do not ignore criticism.
- Do not ignore people.
- Diligently check everything you publish and take publishing seriously.
- Always declare conflicts of interest.
- Do your share for the community.
- Do not commit to tasks you cannot complete.
- Do not write poor reviews of grants and papers.
- Do not write references for people who do not deserve it.
- Never plagiarize or doctor your data.
They are rather obvious, but it never hurts to read them again.
