A rare example of a simple, fun, non-bogus name for a bioinformatics tool

Recently published in the journal Genome Biology, we have:

I like this name a lot because it is:

  • Memorable
  • Pronounceable
  • Simple, but also clever (combining elements of HiC and 5C)
  • Fun (a play on 'high five')
  • Not an acronym (so not a bogus acronym either)
  • Unique (can't find any other tools with this name)
  • Relevant (the short name has a connection to the data that the tool works with).

Maybe I need to start designing some sort of 'Anti-JABBA' award?
