Manuscript progress

I've known for several weeks that one of the manuscripts we submitted before Christmas has been accepted, and this morning I got a 'provisional acceptance' email about another.  This latter manuscript is the one about the impact of uptake sequences on the evolution of bacterial proteomes.  The work was started more than 10 years ago, so it will be great to get this finally off my plate.

The reviewers were generally positive but they did suggest quite a few new analyses.  I'll have to consult with my bioinformatics co-author to decide which of these we might reasonably undertake.  There'll be some rewriting too of course - parts that seemed very clear to me were not so clear to the reviewers.

p.s.  Thanks to commenter (commentor?) Phagenista (great name) for the information about where to get the ECOR collection.  I've emailed them to ask about shipping to Canada - I think our strain import permit may still be valid.
