If you want to publish in Bioinformatics you should follow 3 unwritten rules:
- Submit a tool
- Give your tool a name
- Make it available through a web service
The funny part comes when scientists, those that are known by their imagination and creativity, have to give a name to their precious tool. When faced with this dilemma, they have three options:
- A human name, like Ernest
- Invent a new word, like Payao
- Borrow from other languages, like SICAGO, which means “If I poop” in Spanish.
