Maria Lluch Senar: colors of the work correspondence, data manipulation

Remember the time when scientific debates were open and public?
Maria’s comment on the 3rd point below (all in red… doesn’t it ring a bell?) is extremely marvelous.
Don’t miss the moment of the new proteins discovery when she will find them*).
Especially after she finds someone to process concocted by herself Excel files of >100Mb, 15 spreadsheets each…
which are… ta-dam! — a «new format» © Maria Lluch Senar
— hand-made copy-pastes from standard mass spec files which were already processed.

Then ask yourself a fair question:
Why the hell the standardized files from the machine had to be concocted by Maria’s hand before the analysis and processing into the DB?
Why she was so eager to make her own «new format» though being utterly illiterate in the subject of standardization and data formats for analysis/DB processing?

So when you seem to be involved into a quite probable scientific misconduct (the negligent data making up, actually sheer data manipulation!) by a person who repeatedly lies, spreads slander and intrigues behind someone’s back — think about that you may become a scapegoat at the end. Even if you only get stained — it’s still the shame.
Yes, it is awkward to read…
But much more shameful thing is to be cowed by a person who makes her move up to the position she holds by a very questionable way.
And to realize why this her way up is so questionable and shameful for a scientist: enough to see how she avoids open discussion and open exchange of the opinions. Enough to have it experienced — of how she’s been craving to fuck K.’s brain claiming to be alone with herself.

When a person, who repeatedly stresses you out, disrupts your work and utterly unable to openly and constructively discuss the project with all involved parties — it’s freaking disgusting when the very same person also claims to have you alone with herself: indeed just to fuck you (your brain actually but when your brain is violently fucked — it hurts unbearably).

P.S. in this email below K’ words are only those of black font

Above we can see the favorite Maria’s trip up, used repeatedly in her emails to K.:
«If you think that changing the pipeline to consider the new format is not possible please let us know and we will find the way to implement it».

She’s been absolutely unable to perceive any explanations why her undoubtedly genius idea just would not work: her ignorant obtrusion of the way how the data analysis (which is not her expertise at all) should be technically carried out just must be accepted with complete obedience no matter how feasible it is to perform at least partially. As soon as you start bringing her technical reasoning, however best you try keeping patience etc — she gets aggressive almost immediately throwing at you here-above quoted her favourite trip up.

Literally: «I am the one with the scientific authority here — you only must listen and follow! You cannot follow my genius ideas? — Shut up! Fired!!»

Yet another money laundry case under the brand of so called MycoSynVac project generously funded by ERC (European Research Council).


*) Sure she found them! Her patron has arranged the publication «Unraveling the hidden universe of small proteins in bacterial genomes» with extensively advertising campaign «Revealing the role of the mysterious small proteins» all over sci-comm media — how do you like the titles? remember the bad science list about Research Misconduct? — the role is not revealed actually: see the paper, its heuristic modelling attitude…

Maria Lluch-Senar and Luis Serrano Research Misconduct and corruption in publications

— why «arranged»? — because they published it in Molecular System Biology EMBO journal, Luis Serrano is fostered there, in EMBL, he has many connections, including his good friend Peer Bork (see Serrano’s lecture on Youtube about Mycoplasma where he mentions that).
And Peer is a senior editor in Mol Sys Biol.
No scrutiny guaranteed!
BTW, Serrano also publishes his papers in Cell Systems, where he’s himself in editorial board.
Cosy, isn’t it?

Also try to find and make work the «Open Access»™ code used in the paper and written for it — check it out how it’s easy to get it and how well it corresponds to the results, so loudly advertised!

The desktop version of Phobius was used to predict any signal peptides and transmembrane segments in our predicted SEPs using default settings and only differentiating between gram positives and negatives.

«Some software and our “RanSEPs: Comprehensive unbiased prediction of small proteins in bacterial genomes” used to predict any signal peptides in our predicted small proteins» 🙂
Find this «Comprehensive unbiased prediction».
Please, mind the Bad science which, of course doesn’t mean you should be biased.
Just check it out: and your guess is correct — it’s not on GitHub or any other public open repository with versions and dates.

Do you really think that those who lie so heavily and cheat at ease can do good science?
But, sure, they can publish their science! They have all facilities for that, don’t they?

Maria Lluch Senar & Luis Serrano Pubul: extracts from emails and talks

K. presented the following to the Conflict Resolution Committee at CRG, she highlighted for them the most odd quotes.
They have not found them really abnormal. They rather silently agreed to be sneakily used for her dismissal. She have had a correspondence with Juan Valcarcel, genuinely presuming his independence, but no one from the Committee expressed any sorry to her after all.

Juan Valcarcel just told K. quietly and smiling that the dismissal would be illegal and K. could go to the court then. Nice kids, really.
You lose your job, never mind, this is just our game with us playing people.

Getting their (Maria Lluch’s & Luis Serrano’s) «no one can work with you», «you cannot work with users», «no one can understand what you are doing» and other bullshit like that, just as a way to oppress her, — every time K. heard that she just felt utterly stunned.
She could not get it: how come that people who consider themselves as scientists happened to turn over rabid liars like that?
What about science they do? If they are lying that at ease…

The very same people have been repeatedly requiring to recognize their scientific authority. Franco style? Or what was that?

Support bacteria! — they’re the only culture some people have!…
…in their labs

Luis Serrano, CRG director, led by Maria Lluch-Senar: negotiating

The most funny thing in the doc below is their «in turn» after the claim for recognition which they were utterly unable to get the decent way. You recognize someone’s so shamefully unsatisfied scientific authority and direct supervision and… ta-dam! — «in turn» they allow you to do your job!
NB: scientific authority here is an exclusive right for Maria Lluch to fuck your brain being alone with you and then to lie about you whatever shit she invents — her patron Luis Serrano would support it by any means.
You have to talk alone with her: this is what they repeatedly claimed, whereas having Maria’s ambitions together with incompetence in the subject and aggression, there is no other word than «brainfucking» for what she was doing with you tet-à-tet.

Interestingly, «Relocation of Catherine’s workplace outside of Serrano’s group should be considered» was firstly suggested by the Committee, but then stroke out by those claiming for recognition of the «scientific authority»… Introduced again, but no: «recognize or perish!»

Luis Serrano, CRG, with his favorite are brought to Conflict Resolution Committee

Luis Serrano, Coordinator of the Systems Biology Programe at the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona, Spain, and recipient of a €2 million ERC Advanced Investigator Grant for five years, said the requirement of keeping time sheets is at best a waste of time and worst an insult to the high-level researchers. “Time sheets do not make much sense, to be honest. If you want to cheat, you can always cheat,” he said. He said other grants he receives from the Spanish government and the Human Frontier Science Programme do not require time sheets [https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2933871/]

— looks like here, Luis, there was that sure case when you were not cheating… and you were right about yourself: secured by your position, if you want to cheat, you can always cheat.
