From the latest issue of Bioinformatics we have:
- SUBAcon: a consensus algorithm for unifying the subcellular localization data of the Arabidopsis proteome
According to the abstract, the 'SUB' comes from subcellular, the 'A' comes from Arabidopsis, and the 'con' comes from 'consensus'. So why isn't it SUBACON? Maybe because people might then read it as 'sue bacon'?
It's not clear to me if this is meant to be pronounced 'soo-ba-con' or 'sub-ay-con'. The abstract then goes on to mention something called the ASURE portal (pronounced 'azure' or 'ay-sure'???), where ASURE = Arabidopsis SUbproteome REference.. If this was following the same rules as SUBAcon, shouldn't this be called ASUre (or even ASUBre)?
