Been unable to sleep for 2 days straight, for no apparent reason. Well, I did fell asleep yesterday, but at 5 AM, and my clock rang as usual at 7 AM, so I'm not sure it counts. When I get better sleep I'll post about problems encountered while doing microarray analysis, principaly caused by non-standard gene/protein nomenclature in publications. Basically, when a gene is discovered by many labs, each one insist to name it as they want, which can complicate research to a point you can't imagine (Record to beat, 10 totally unrelated names for a protein). When you throw splicing in... it get spicy (ok, I'm totally sleep deprivated).
