Error tight: Exercises for lab groups to prevent research mistakes

No one is immune from making mistakes. However, it is possible to set up our labs and research systems in ways that reduce the likelihood that we will make mistakes and make it more likely that we’ll catch the ones that slip through. Error Tight is a set of exercises for lab groups to identify places in their research workflow where errors may occur and pinpoint ways to address them. It is intended to be completed during a lab meeting.
