After 6 months of #lockdown and #lab shutdown I spent a full day 9 am-8 pm in lab doing experiments! New #grad students in #lifesciences: There is always light đź’ˇ and #fluorescent images at the end of the tunnel! Filing a #patent on my #invention from #phd work soon @OrganOnAChip
This is an Organ on a Chip platform that enables mimicking #tissues and #organs in a high throughput manner! The main focus will be towards developing #mucosal organs with tissue resident #immune cells and lining #epithelial cells for #testing #COVID19 treatments #covidvaccines
I recently gave a talk at #oooc2020 organized by @GVNlab at @Columbia. In the talk I demonstrated the #ease of fabrication, #functionality, and #modularity of this platform.
We’re open to #collaborate with interested #researchers! Interested to learn more:

Posting some reflections on the #ACTT & #RECOVERY trials related to #remdesivir & #dexamethasone for the treatment of #COVID19

Those results feel like definitive advances, but we need to realize their limitations and need for confirmation despite everyone's #pandemic fatigue

1/ Image
There are lot of skeptics in and outside of #Twitter on the results of both trials, strong emotions regarding big-pharma made medications, the way the #EUA was made, also about use of #steroids in the #ICU that has a quite rocky history among those who run those units.
And we need to acknowledge from the outset all sorts of basic, and not so basic, emotions that come in the doing clinical trials, exacerbated by academic cliques, national defense issues (and nationalisms) that can get exacerbated with the strains in health systems. Image

#Python tip: #hypothesis is good at finding bugs; however, often as not, the bug is in your understanding of what the code is supposed to do.

1/
Initial belief: The JSON module is buggy because #hypothesis finds cases that don't round-trip.

Bugs in understanding:
* The JSON spec doesn't have NaNs
* A JSON module feature is that lists and tuples both serialize into arrays but can't be distinguished when deserialized.

2/
Initial belief:The colorsys module is buggy because #hypothesis finds conversions that don't round-trip

Bugs in understanding:
* color gamuts are limited
* colors in one gamut may not be representable in another
* implementations are constrained by underlying specifications

Is there more questions on a voting ballot than there are questions on the SAT? How the can they do it in a somewhat timely manner but our government can't grasp the concept of how to do it...still, today?

STOP THIS SHIT, SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP...PLEASE!

Stop asking stupid questions or you'll continue to get stupid answers.

Feed us the data that matters so we can figure this out the right way.

#ProblemSolving101 using the #ScientificMethod.
If facts tend to change on their way to finding the truth...then give us the facts and lets figure this out for ourselves once and for all.

Stop censoring the truths and facts that are available.

There's been a story in a UK tabloid (that I won't name), and @BBCRadio4 of all places; that #rocket #salad causes #cancer due to high levels of #nitrates in the leaves. Here's my take, and what's wrong with the thinking behind it.

A thread.

1/12
It's true, #rocket #leaves are hyperaccumulators of #nitrates ; this isn't anything new. It's been known for a long time. Other crops with high nitrate content include #spinach and #watercress

2/12
Nitrate content varies according to where the #crop is grown, and is closely tied to the soil #plants are grown in, and the amount of #light they receive. Rocket leaves grown in #winter have higher nitrate content than those grown in #summer

Lets talk about #StockMarket participation & #SocialInteraction...
Here is a question: If you go to church with, or you are a neighbour to someone that participates in the #StockMarket, do you think being in their company can lead to you (given you aren't a retail investor) participating in the stock market?
I am currently engaged in a #Research wherein I explore the reasons why and the reasons why not retail investors participate in the #StockMarket. I am also looking at the reasons why a private company would choose to go public & list its shares on a stock exchange...

Tonight we have a special installment of #MitoMonday as @ClaireBensard hosts a #Tweetorial on her recent paper in @CellMetabolism #LateNightWithTheRutterLab
Can a specific metabolic program provoke a cell to become a cancer cell? Focusing mainly on glucose, with some thoughts on fatty acids, and glutamine, we tested the uncoupling of glycolysis and glucose oxidation to induce the transformation from stem cell to cancer cell. 2/
Long ago, Otto Warburg observed that cancer cells perform aerobic glycolysis, but we didn’t know how a cell could control flux from cytosolic glycolysis to mitochondrial glucose oxidation until the transporter was identified…bit.ly/2RDELqe #MPC 3/

.@gsaslis and @mikz say that any project needs CI, but OSS projects need it more!
#DevopsDays Slide: any project needs CI, but OSS ones need it more!
I think @DRMacIver and @alexwlchan would probably agree with this. #hypothesis #isThereAnOfficialHypothesisHashtagYet
CI is supposed to run in the background, whenever you push changes—but if you’re stuck waiting for the tests to run, it’s not in the background, is it? @gsaslis #DevopsDays
