The article makes very salient and relevant points - especially the section called "Routinely unique". That is what we see all the time and makes bioinformatics a much more difficult job than what one might expect.
A standard RNA-seq analysis is perhaps a 15 minute job to set up and launch on a compute node - will finish in less than a day. But if the system is even a bit outside the most common we might just end up with a two week long "slugfest".
What the scientific community should understand is that, "Methods" papers are generally highly cited than "biology" papers (The top-100 papers). The "Methods" papers could even be expanded to some papers describing experimental techniques (like PCR or Sanger-sequencing) and not necessarily have any biological discovery. So its really important that expertise of bioinformaticians be appropriately recognized as bioinformatics is in the heart of every biological research.
