## General

• Talk to the audience not slides
• Whenever you show a plot, start by explaining the axes and what is being plotted.
• Plots should standalone, caption, title or annotate them, so that any subsetting or summarising is made clear.

• Axis labels need to be bigger ( I use + theme_bw(18) in ggplot2 to increase the base text size to 18pt)
