Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
Citable preprints allow authors to establish priority for the work they have done by providing a public record. This is so well accepted that most funding bodies, including UKRI [19], Wellcome [20] and the US National Institutes of Health [21], allow researchers to cite preprints in their grant applications.
