Ok, guys, I can bake too. Maybe I haven’t been commissioned to bake a wedding cake, but at least I can make muffins.
A little background: it’s grant application season, and my PI has been writing grants and having us do last-minute analyses for the past couple weeks. Last week, we got some sequencing data back on Friday–I proceeded to spend all weekend slamming my head against my keyboard to get an icky icky program to analyze it. I knew it would take a long time to run, but with any luck (and running jobs in parallel) I figured I could get it done for the grant deadline on Wednesday. That is, until Windows 8 decided to fuck me over at 1 am on Wednesday by forcing a restart to install Windows updates, sending a ^C to the program and wiping 3 days of progress. So, I restrained myself from chucking my laptop out the window and instead decided to bake something my PI would appreciate–mini muffins.
