TIP OF THE WEEK

Knowledge sharing from industry professionals

Direct to Consumer Genetic Testing and Genetic Counselling

At OpenHelix, we remember the days when people didn't even barely have documentation with their software when they put it out (yah, I know, it still varies). But outreach really is getting better. There are journals now that are also enforcing more re... MORE

On The Turing Completeness of PowerPoint

This week's video tip is...well...atypical. It's not about a software tool, per se. Or, is it...? ... MORE

Neandertal Inheritance and Consequences

But then there's also the looming issues of misuse of information, two tweets on that this week. More tools. More genomes. Wild plants, wild viruses, wild ancestors. Reactome graphical components are popular--if you make them, people will use them. Welcome to our Friday feature link collection: SNPpets. During the wee...
