Secret Reagent Man
0 comment Monday, June 2, 2014 |
A pox on people who publish papers without telling you what the reagents are!Alphabet soup acronyms are only OK if they are so commonly used in the field that you can be reasonably sure that a) everyone knows what you're talking about, AND b) the actual description of the reagent is easily Googleable from the acronym.Hint: if you feel the need to define "4% PFA" in the methods section, you're not going to get away with an antibody against "F5y34g.2b" without telling us what protein you're actually detecting. Jerks.
