Random pint though with and - *every* should have one talk dedicated to the ethics of the course domain - we are especially thinking about how the ethics of coding are too highly obscured (abstracted away). Hey - what do you think?

Mismapping results in missed variants. In lots of scenarios. Perhaps when including alt-aware aligner, also check the sex chr complement. :) Bioinformatics is great and powerful, and only does exactly what we tell it. Now what we want it to do.

Many good replies here about how the culture of a place can override any decent faculty recruitment strategy. Yale (like it's Ivy counterparts) has a bleak history of treating faculty of color equitably. That news gets around~

This yr, at least 7 Indig women will graduate from with PhD’s. Some will be the first Indig person to ever graduate with a PhD in our depts. The uni is doing nothing to keep us here. No post docs, no faculty positions, no research opps. But they’ll sure take our photo.

IME, generally the top <A%> applications are agreed upon by all reviewers, and should be funded. Then, the middle <B%> are contested, but all meritorious, and should have a lottery chance of being funded. Bottom <C%> don't pass to get into lottery.

For hiring (students, postdocs, faculty, staff), I would be tremendously opposed to a lottery. For grants/fellowships, pending a certain level of evaluation, I could see the value in a lottery (or levels of lottery).

Rotations can be beneficial if many labs (at least three) willing to consider the student, and have funding, and small projects, and... but that's just not the case in many programs.
