What is the main takeaway from your current research and why is it important?

Microbes rule the world!

Prior to using Authorea, what issues would you encounter when writing research with collaborators?

Worst case scenario: we were emailing Word docs around. Changes would be scattered throughout multiple versions, and it would be a huge headache to sort them all out at the end. Best case scenario, we'd work together on a Google Doc, but I HATE google docs. Formatting in them is frustrating, and adding images inline is annoying. The default view, which everyone else seems to prefer has annoyingly large margins, and I found scrolling through pages to be super clunky. I know that there are alternative views, but they are all unappealing to me. Writing does not come naturally to me, and having everything shoved into one unwieldy document was a serious psychological barrier for me.

Has Authorea helped with remedying some of those issues? How?
