About the “Helpful Tips” Section

What

This section is a complilation of helpful (often technical) tidbits I wish had been provided to me along the way transitioning from biology to computer science.

Why

These are things I spent a fair amount of time looking into when I was starting out, and I wanted a place for my own quick future reference in case I forgot anything. I decided to make it public so that hopefully it is helpful to others as well!

Though I don’t post often and have considered deleting this section, some of these sections get a steady stream of hits, and one consistently gets hundreds of views per week and to my knowledge is the only example code online.
