Tommorrow, TNG will head off for his penultimate first day of grade school. And unfortunately, that almost certainly means another attempt to indoctrinate him in a catechism I find both depressing and infuriating. It goes something like this: "Wikipedia is not a reliable source. Wikipedia is not citable. Don't use Wikipedia".

Another afternoon spent this week in the lab, and another awful MinION run. I figured that the last run was eminently beatable, given that I ended up with exactly one read aligning to my reference (though perversely, re-calling the data via Metrichor ended up with two reads in the pass folder -- one of which had zero bases in it -- I guess it is a passing null read). But no, despite coming close to being botch-free on the routine lab stuff, dark clouds came early and the experiment yielded not a single usable read.

I will confess that I had a post planned in advance of which this post is but a faint echo. A grand scheme was going to yield a triumph worthy of brass bands. But instead, it's barely kazoo territory, but sometimes even a small victory must be celebrated, if only in moderation.
