TIP OF THE WEEK
Knowledge sharing from industry professionals
Over the years I've started to follow a lot of farmers on twitter. It might sound odd to folks who are immersed in human genomics and disease. But I actually find the plant and animal genomics communities to be pushing tech faster and further to the h... MORE
I didn't expect to do another tip on the paths through experiments or data this week. But there must be something in the water cooler lately, and all of these different tools converged on my part of the bioinformatics ecosphere. As I was perusing my t... MORE
Recently I highlighted a decision tree tool for experimental design. EDA, or Experimental Design Assistant, helps you to plan your experiment, choose the approrpiate groups and numbers you'll need. Set some variables, etc. This week's video also offer... MORE

This week's SNPpets include a variety of things--some the usual hard science, some were clever strategies to engage in softer ways. We also had genomics diagnostics and a roadmap to the clinic. Genes and developmental delays. Animal models for mechanisms, not for target discovery. There was a fun #DNADay16 talk about the genetics of Wizarding, using Harry Potter characters as the pedigrees. Metagenomics pizza. Also this week, the first time I saw news first "reported on github". Welcome to our Friday feature link collection: SNPpets. During the week we come across a lot of links and reads that ... MORE
Over the years I've started to follow a lot of farmers on twitter. It might sound odd to folks who are immersed in human genomics and disease. But I actually find the plant and animal genomics communities to be pushing tech faster and further to the hands of end-users than a lot of the clinical applications are at this point in time. And as #Plant16 rolls out to feed us, there was a lot of soybean chatter in my twittersphere. So when SoyBase tweeted a reminder about some of their videos, I thought the timing was great. They have a YouTube channel for some videos to help users access the SoyBas... MORE
This week's SNPpets include a range of tools and genomics studies, from microbial to planaria to salmon to humans, as usual--as well as some that are species-agnostic. Also stuff that is aimed at drug targets and pharmacology, including the Open Targets project Target Validation Platform. There's a new DNA privacy bill under discussion in the US that I found interesting. Also--next Monday April 25 is #DNADay! Participate in community outreach with a number of strategies. Welcome to our Friday feature link collection: SNPpets. During the week we come across a lot of links and reads that we thin... MORE
