Christmass is near and instead of chance to embarrass ourselves at some party we are stuck at home. I really recommend POP articles about AlphaFold if you have not heard about it before. And definitely try to compose your own opera in Graphs and Visualizations – trust me you need to try it, it’s an amazing experience 🙂
Finally, merry Christmas full of wonders! May your happiness be large and see you in 2021!
And as always, enjoy your reading.
