Avoid naming variables after functions, whenever possible.
Use nouns for variables, verbs for functions.
Use spaces in between definitions.
camelCase all variable names, including acronyms. Science has many mixed-case acronyms (e.g. mRNA, RNAi), which can be problematic for consistent naming. We recommend following this naming format with camelCase: orfeomeRnai, not orfeomeRNAi.
For logicals, explicitly write out TRUE and FALSE, instead of using T and F.
