PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Clearly a tutorial that has been missing for a long time, leaving many gloomy bioinformaticians in glamorous parties. The line I seem to have more success with lately is '.. DNA .. yes, so being able to tell whether you like or hate coriander, or have dry or wet earwax'.... If that fails, the male infertility GWAS is usually a hit.
