reading and writing

  • RXvisit combines preprints from bioRxiv with data from Twitter to help you find the papers being discussed in your field.
  • Arxiv-sanity is an advanced version of the above, but available only for arxiv.
  • Overleaf is an online collaborative latex editor.
  • I use Zotero for managing my refences. It is free, open-source and allows you to define your own location for file storage (i.e. making it practically unlimited).
  • Writing a good research grant proposal is not easy. How to write a great research proposal is an attempt to collect together a number of suggestions about what makes a good proposal.

project management

  • I use Asana to manage my projects and recently also time I spend on them.
