Hey everyone- I’m suffering a LOT from bipolar delusions, and so I’m going to have to take it easy for a few days or so. My earlier post that is most interesting, about how to leverage existing clinical trials to fight the pandemic, is here. The papers I reference in it which I wrote or rewrote I’m just posting to this website. Links to come. [EDIT: I decided against this- I’ll publish them formally in time once I find an appropriate outlet.]
It’s occurred to me that the functional redundancy stuff I mentioned earlier for soil data might be applicable to studies of gut dysbiosis and there should be a lot of useful data in databases to work with, provided I can get adequate metadata, but I just need to rest a bit before I try to do this or anything else.
I’m thinking of submitting the hypothesis to mBio but the other stuff about COVID-19 and dysbiosis and inflammation, and the more important clinical trial idea, I don’t know how to package that; it was rejected from MedRxiv for “just being a proposal” so- a second hypothesis paper? Based on the first? Would anyone publish that?
