Yes, saw that one a few years back. There’s something daft every Christmas. So, who is going to pass it on to Florian?

Tweet your favorite diss while in grad school. Mine: I went to my mathematical logic professor for help understanding the proof of a complicated theorem. He replied: “Don’t feel bad, Scott. Even talented students have problems with this.”

Nothing to do with league tables, I’m sure. So, what exactly is the ‘correct’ % of firsts?

My (v.quick) reading of it was of Rtx+Ctx vs Rtx+Cetuximab. Didn’t see an Rtx-only group to compare. Although EGFR mutation/amp v.rare in HPV+ve tumours, HPV E5 gene known to inhibit EGFR internalisation, so enhances EGFR surface expression.

Here's a pickup of news from Nebula Genomics that they're going to give away low-coverage (1x_) genomes for free to people who fill out health survey. Keep reading this thread for some I.Q. stuff (1/n)

Free personal genome sequencing anyone? Just anonymously* give them all your personal and health details so they can be sold on. *If you have done an Ancestry or 23andMe test as part of their family history services, it might be very easy to figure this out...
