My first publication is finally available to the public, and now I can finally say that I am a 100% bona fide published scientist! The article's primary focus is explaining the technique in which we exercise fruit flies and the precise methods we use to study if adult exercise can reduce the negative effects that arise from consuming a high-fat during childhood. The paper is available to all online through the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE). The article includes a classic manuscript describing in thorough detail our methods for exercising the flies along with a video showing the methods conducted live in our lab by none other than Team TreadWheel itself.
We just got the email that our manuscript has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE)! It's really hard to convey in words how thrilled I am at the moment, but let's just say I handled the moment after reading the good news with the upmost decorum and professionalism. Just don't go verifying that with anyone on the third floor of the building, because they might say something about hearing someone shouting and running to their friends across the hall. Either way, I am so excited for my first publication and have learned a great deal about the writing and publishing process from this experience. Next, we'll have a film crew come in from JoVE to film the video component of paper (hence the visualized experiments part of their name). The manuscript might be accepted, but I can tell the work to get this baby published is far from over.
