seven deadly sins

Unfortunately, I was not around last year when Carole Goble delivered her lecture “The Seven Deadly Sins of Bioinformatics” at the EBI. So, what are they?
  1. Parochialism and Insularity
  2. Exceptionalism
  3. Autonomy or death!
  4. Vanity: Pride and Narcissism
  5. Monolith Megalomania
  6. Scientific Method Sloth
  7. Instant Gratification
I think Carole is a bit harsh on bioinformatics, which, remember, is not even a science. Are these applicable to “Real Science™” though? Absolutely.
