In this instalment of The Beerologist, I will describe a scientific paper by Prof. Dr. Diego Bonatto that I recently found on bioRxiv (https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.07.17.209171v2). The manuscript is currently (as of 28/08/2020) in peer review and subject to changes before publication. It is in the reviewers’ hands!
