Long titles of the Arabidopsis mRNA fasta files causing problems with downstream programs. After foolishly trying BioPython for the simple task of stripping everything after the sequence ID, found obvious in hind-sight solution of using
cut -f1 -d" " example.fasta > out.fasta which converts this

rlsimpaper is on arXiv! good time to be using the program
Finally found out why Zotero has been REALLY slow. Known issue that default setting of “Import all keywords as tags” causes hundreds of useless tags to be downloaded, slowing search time to a worthless crawl.

repmis package :
A collection of miscellaneous tools for reproducible research with R. Currently the package includes tools to load R packages and automatically generate BibTeX files citing them as well as load plain-text data stored on Dropbox, GitHub, and from other sources
With some modifications I was able to easily create a function that could download data from non-Public Dropbox folders. The source_DropboxData command is in the most recent version of repmis (v0.2.4) is the result. All you need to know is the name of the file you want to download and its Dropbox key. You can find both of these things in the URL for the webpage that appears when you click on Share Link. Here is an example: https://www.dropbox.com/s/exh4iobbm2p5p1v/fin_research_note.csv The file name is at the very end (fin_research_note.csv) and the key is the string of letters and numbers in the middle (exh4iobbm2p5p1v). Now we have all of the information we need for source_DropboxData:
FinDataFull <- repmis::source_DropboxData("fin_research_note.csv", "exh4iobbm2p5p1v", sep = ",", header = TRUE)
or, as posted in the comments, using the rDrop package
