The first paper of my PhD is finally out! Its full title is "Integrative modeling reveals the principles of multi-scale chromatin boundary formation in human nuclear organization" but in talks and posters I've been referring to the project as "Unravelling higher order chromatin organisation" (geddit?) or even "the ENCODE-ing of ..." (referencing ENCODE, of course).
I'm creeping towards the tail-end of my PhD so it's probably time to dust off my CV and tidy it up. In the past I've written this document a few different ways, from LaTeX to a custom Inkscape document, but I've decided to move with the times and try something new: a markdown CV that compiles to both an HTML web version and well-formatted PDF.
There seems to be a general consensus that author lists in academic articles are growing. Wikipedia says so, and I've also come across a published letter and short Nature article which accept this is the case and discuss ways of mitigating the issue. Recently there was an interesting discussion on academia.stackexchange on the subject but again without much quantification. Luckily given the array of literature database APIs and language bindings available, it should be pretty easy to investigate with some statistical analysis in R.
