Markdown for scientific writing

Markdown is a fantastic and minimalist tool for authoring scientific documents. This repository is a collection of tools, resources, and tutorials to simplfy your workflow. If you spend a little time going through the tutorials you'll be able to stop using Microsoft Word entirely and write clean, lightweight markdown files that can easily be version controlled by git. Collaboration with your coauthors would also become way more powerful and simpler.
