Important Disclaimers:

This blog is purely the opinions of the author (me).  PLEASE DO NOT ATTRIBUTE ANYTHING WRITTEN HERE TO BE ANYTHING BUT THE OPINIONS OF ONE PERSON -- ME.
To elaborate:
The words here do not reflect the opinions of my present or past employers including: Virginia Tech, Johns Hopkins, the National Cancer Institute, the NIH, the NIAID, SAIC, MSC, Thermo (Fisher) Scientific or even Big Frank's Bar-B-Que (the home of the Giovanni, the world's greatest sandwich -- and where I spent my nights and weekends to pay for my undergraduate work.)
The products described in this blog are the trademarked property of the companies that produce them. They give me no money or free stuff for mentioning them in this blog. Offers to post things for some sort of compensation will be ignored or subject to irate negative responses.

Comments and commentors:
The comments on this blog are the comments and opinions of the person putting the comment on the blog. While the author of this blog (me!) does need to approve these, I mostly filter for obvious spam. This whole page is an exercise in free speech so I really don't want to edit the opinions of people informed enough and bored enough to read and post here. These postings are not the official opinions of the organizations that these posters belong to.
Update 9/27/19: I'm sorry to say that I'm losing the war against the content spammers. It's such a bummer, because I love getting comments on posts, but I have -- no joke -- over 400 comments dropped on posts from weird bot things trying to post links to scary phishing sites. I'll leave the disclaimers up here for the comments due to the hundreds that have already been made, but until Blogger cleans this up with some better filtering algorithm, I'm afraid I'm going to need to disable external comments altogether. If you have a comment, please email me or find me on Twitter!

Content quality and grammar! 
Wow...um...yeah.... what you get when you come to this site is a mediocre scientist's impression of his favorite proteomics papers (I honestly don't write about things I don't like, those notes go elsewhere). Please keep in mind that these are my thoughts and impressions of what I've read. I'm frequently wrong and I am sometimes appalled to see what I've written in the past when I learn more. If you see something I misinterpreted and you'd like to clarify, please shoot me an email! Send me a Tweet (is that what it's called)? I'm @ProteomicsNews if that is helpful. I'd love to hear from you, even if I am swamped and don't get back to you immediately!
