Thanks Claire, it was an amazing effort, and an honour to watch unfold.
On the Editorial Team call earlier today (which met to format the first release), I compared the experience of watching the separate writing sprints (and yes, I do get all the sub-groups messages) as watching one of those time-lapse videos of a flower blooming. So, kudos to the Epi team, and may a thousand more data flowers bloom! I hope you all enjoy a well-deserved weekend. Cheers,
