The standard algorithm to compute tropical varieties makes crucial use of the fact that the tropicalization of an irreducible variety is connected. I will discuss joint work with Josephine Yu showing that the tropicalization of a d-dimensional irreducible variety satisfies a stronger d-connectedness property. The proof involves a tropical Bertini theorem.
