This week’s highlight is definitely the fun interview with the “nerd famous” Hadley Wickham, “the Man Who Revolutionized R”. Cracked me up, but was also really informative. New JABBA awards for terrible tool names. DNA from herbarium specimens. An issue at dbSNP with ExAC allele frequencies. Following installation guidelines can be good. Oh–my favorite food has a new database: Legume Federation. And a few other interesting things that flew by this week.

A pretty unusual week. Cutting-edge science and as well as access to medical literature that’s hundreds of years old. Predictions about the future. New ways to use one of my favorite visualization tools (UpSet) and influential visualizations from the past. Veterans genomes and minion genomes. And more….

A pretty typical week, lots of great software and fascinating data. Methylation analysis, 7-set Venn, a new genomics comic strip, some personal genomics, some clinical genomics.  Gosh, I love my life. But the most amusing and unexpected snippet: misuse of a Circos image of caught the eye of the developer, and he found that Jurassic Park dinosaurs are made of corn.

Everybody was full of vim and vigor this week, and a lot of great things were going around. Oddest thing was “fitbit cages for laboratory mice”. But I can see the value. Most heated post will probably be “Myths of Bioinformatics Software.” Other things included recommended data repositories from @PLOS journals, sequencing kids’ genomes, non-coding variants affecting drug activity, a new LD tool, DNA contamination issues, cancer data challenge, microbial databases (including IMG that we love), Galaxy talks, and more.

This week’s SNPpets include data protection issues in the EU, reminiscing on the past and musing on the future of bioinformatics, RNAseq tools including Salmon and SeqMonk, updates to the human nomenclature BioMart service, BioGPS changes (this one is a very significant change in content, btw), data on pathways in cancer, and more.

This week’s SNPpets include several new tools that I want to examine, including functional annotations in a couple of different ways. But other stuff includes designing DTC consumer products,  NLM’s future directions, a new Genomics subreddit, and stunning phylogenetics representations among other interesting reads.

This week’s SNPpets include real-time visualization of Ebola spread, precision medicine informatics, big capacity for whole genomes, “genetobollocks” for a new description of media coverage of genomics papers, Neanderal pathogenic variants, and re-examining old problems on a couple of matters.
