  • Check if your code rrepository has a README, write or update yours


  • Is your current data structure sustainable (you can keep running things and not run out of space)
  • Is your data structure suitable for reproducible science (metadata, correct timestamp, longterm storag)
  • Do you need any additional computational or storage resources?
  • Would you like to brainstorm how to improve your data management with me?


  • What have you worked on this month - are there intermediate figures that could be useful?
  • Are these figures stored somewhere (like you lab notebook) with a caption that will help us know exactly what is shown?
  • Are your figures in useful formats (svg, pdg, ai, or even better: in code)


  • Are you missing anything to make your experiments go better?
  • Are all experimental protocol detailed on the wiki? And up-to-date?
