TIP OF THE WEEK

Knowledge sharing from industry professionals

Neandertal Inheritance and Consequences

Ok, it's been a while since this was a regular feature. But I am still finding that I want to show some videos of science topics and software tools sometimes. So it may not be a regular feature, but I will be highlighting some videos that seem interes... MORE

FlyBase TV, and a letter of support for model organism communities

This week's video tip was prompted by a couple of things. First, it was a tweet from FlyBase, about their video channel. It's been a while since we'd done a FlyBase Tip of the Week, so that was enough of a reason. https://twitter.com/FlyBaseDotOrg/sta... MORE

Genonets, exploring genotype-phenotype relationships

Lately I've been keeping an eye on a lot of the tools that link individuals with sequence data, their phenotypes, and researchers/physicians who may either study or treat the associated medical issues (see MyGene2 most recently) . But there's a lot of... MORE

Friday SNPpets

This week has a duplication event--I was on the road to the March for Science last week, and wasn't able to post the SNPpets. But I stood for plant science at the march (see photo below). It was raining cats and dogs--and this week the snips also include cat and dog microbiomes. It has the peep genome. And monuments to barley. We touch on humans a bit too. 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... https://twitter.com/tillnm/s... MORE

Video Tip of the Week: UCSC Genome Browser in the Cloud (GBIC)

For all the years we've been out doing training on the UCSC Genome Browser tools, we could watch the evolution of the needs of the researchers and the corresponding features of the UCSC Genome Browser site. At first, people just needed access to the public data. But then they needed ways to add their own data to the public data context and share the views. UCSC gave us custom tracks, and they gave us browser sessions. Woot! Increasingly, the data sets got bigger and more complex and custom tracks couldn't handle the volume. UCSC delivered track hubs. Woot! Some people were telling us that they ... MORE

Friday SNPpets

This week was includes quite a range of species--from maize to mammoths to microbiome samples around the world. Also time travel--genome assembly in ancient samples. There's also helpful stuff on the role of genetic counselors, and a guide on when researchers should enjoy chocolate (which may be relevant to some of you this Easter weekend). 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.
