TIP OF THE WEEK
Knowledge sharing from industry professionals

Although typically we focus on databases and algorithms in use in bioinformatics and genomics, there are some other tools that support this work that are crucial as well. The statistical software and computing tools associated with R fall into this ca... MORE
When I'm looking for upcoming Tips of the Week, frequently one tool or paper will lead me to looking at other related tools in that sphere. Last week's tip on COSMIC got me looking through cancer genomics resources, and one of the others that I came a... MORE

THE OPENHELIX BLOG
A genomics resources news portal
This week's SNPpets include a new cancer Data Catalog from NCI, Avianbase for bird genomics, a couple of variant calling tools, and someone trying to genotype the color assessment of "the dress" using 23andme data. Heh. [But at least no llamas were harmed in the making of this post.] Welcome to our Friday feature link collection: SNPpets. During the week we come across a lot of links and reads that we think are interesting, but don't make it to a blog post. Here they are for your enjoyment... RT @TCGAupdates: MT @theNCI: Need cancer-related data for your #research? Check out NCI's new Data Cat... MORE
This week's highlighted discussion tackles the "Internet of DNA", a story I picked last week in my SNPpets post, which has bubbled up elsewhere. And Biostar folks look at the more technical implications of "A global network of millions of genomes...." Biostars is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions and issues. We are members of the community and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at Biostars that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those items or discussions here in this... MORE
[caption id="attachment_21146" align="alignright" width="250"] Great RCSB PDB molecule-of-the-month page on CRISPR[/caption] Genome editing strategies are certainly a hot topic of late. We were astonished at the traffic that the animation of the CRISPR/Cas-9 process recently drew to the blog. There's a huge amount of potential for novel types of studies and interventions in human disease situations--but I'm already seeing applications in agriculture coming along. There's an edited canola available in Canada already. China has edited wheat for disease resistance. There's a project underway to re... MORE
