    Wow, that's very interesting to me. I wonder how the experience differs in the UK vs. US based on that

    @blahah
    we also tend to finish in 3 years here, sometimes up to 4
    and there is generally no taught component - it's entirely research
    but secondary schooling and undergrad go deeper and less broad than the US system

    @rob-p
    Yea I know about the course-req differences
    Didn't know the timeframe was shorter though, but that makes sense with research being the sole focus

    So @Blahah whats the word on the feeding manuscript? I feel our momentum has grinded to a hault - also, seems that some of the stuff we had planned on doing (merging assemblies from >1 assembler) is now a part of the main transrate manuscript, so I’m not really sure where we stand..
    I’m happy to continue on as a solo effort if you are otherwise occupied.

    hey
    momentum has stalled for me on everything the last few weeks, sorry
    Steph has been pretty unwell so I have been looking after her most of the time
    Matt MacManes
    @macmanes
    everything ok?
    oh dude.. I’m really sorry to hear
    Rik
    @blahah
    various things, but most seriously a kidney infection
    seems to be clearing up now though, and baby is fine
    just that she's in pain all the time
    Matt MacManes
    @macmanes
    wow.. alright, lets save talking about manuscript for another time.
    Rik
    @blahah
    we are actually leaving merging out of the transrate paper, because we're not sure it works as expected

    katie was really sick for several of her pregnancies. It was terribly nerve wracking
    Rik
    @blahah
    sorry to hear that
    yeah it's stressful
    evolution really screwed women with pregnancy
    Matt MacManes
    @macmanes
    no shit..
    its no wonder pregnancy relatd mortality was high pre modern medicine.
    Rik
    @blahah
    yeah!
    on the ms, I am very interested in doing it still
    and with transrate so close to submission it will be a good time to do it
    Matt MacManes
    @macmanes
    ok, lets hammer this out asap then.
    Rik
    @blahah
    :)
    gtg, but will be online this week to discuss
    Matt MacManes
    @macmanes
    take care
    Rik
    @blahah
    hey, how's it going?
    ready to do some feeding work tomorrow
    Rik
    @blahah
    I'll start by re-reading the draft and my notes
    I think I was going to analyse some rice data, is that right?
    Rik
    @blahah
    what's your new grant on @macmanes ?

    Avian neurogenomics. Looking at endocrine stuff and gene expression during transitions into and out of parental care.

    very cool - your lab has quite a variety of nice biological questions
    quite a contrast from labs that feverishly pursue a single question
