This is the first instalment in a new sidebar series. In this series, I’m going to attempt to list and define some common terms in life science research. The idea is for these posts to act as a reference for anyone who wants to read through a paper that hasn’t been demystified yet. A lot of these terms regularly show up in publications or are important in order to understand the research background. This sidebar series pairs nicely with our other sidebars providing a look into peer review and a crash course on how to read a scientific paper. If you have any science terms you think we should define that we didn’t include here, drop us an email or DM us on Twitter!
In today’s dictionary instalment- terms from A to C! We will update this post with links to later instalments as they are published.
Find terms from D to H here!
