This is a wonderful re-analysis of microbiome data, there is a longstanding problem in the microbiome world where few people are trained in statistics and things like repeated measurements and dependent longitudinal samples are often ignored.

Oh yes, there is certainly plenty of mulling over procrastination going on in the meantime which presumably makes it much easier to actually get it together at the last minute ...

response teams in are working hard to prevent cases crossing borders, but that’s tricky when there are far more informal border crossings than formal ones. What can be done? As is often the case with this outbreak, community engagement is key.

There are some reasonable points in here, but I'm afraid I can't agree with the defence for naming a new genus after yourself... Leaving aside the fact that it's extremely tacky and egotistical, the honour of having a taxon named after you should be for others to gift.

We’ve done this (submit LaTeX) and I strongly don’t recommend it as production dept typically end up screwing it up hugely later on.
