How not to write a sequence assembly comparison paper

A great post by Keith Robison in which he casts his expert eye in the direction of a new pre-print published at F1000 Research.

In the preprint there is a a very ill-designed figure, which should be a table, that prints badly, with the font much too light for the unnecessarily heavy background. Displaying a four quadrant image adds nothing; a neatly organized table could display more information in a far more readable format allowing easy comparison. Even if the design were defensible, the content is embarassingly out-of-date, I'd estimate by close to two years.

The post ends with a great coda.
