The first paper to go out with my name on it has been officially published in this week's Nature_
Sure, I'm one of about 200 people credited on the paper, but I was happy with my contribution to the group effort. Unfortunately, it's not in an open-access journal, so I can't link to anything but the abstract.
Our lab has another paper in submission that I'm an author on, and the plan is for me to clean up some data over the next few months to get a solid first-author paper out the door. That sounds great and all, but the hard work is really just beginning.
