Friday SNPpets

This week’s SNPpets explore the past and the future. There’s the effect of climate on human population movements. And a correction to another ancestry paper. We have retro bioinformatics hardware. The creator of the ribbon protein diagrams appears. Top stories from last year, and from this year (so far). And Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Anne Wojcicki on a “future without disease” (oh, please–but that was the headline writer’s fault, the interview isn’t that pollyanna-ish). There’s also the future of genetic discrimination and GINA. And future disease outbreak tools. Have a look.

This week’s SNPpets include some funny gems, but also the usual stuff: there’s software, databases, research, etc. But there’s also a high-school curriculum project in bioinformatics, which is unusual. Have a look.

This week’s SNPpets include a wide range of things. People are indoors and staying warm by typing, I think. Highlights include: the new cost-per-genome slide update; tool comparisons (which I always find useful); geek productivity charted; updates to the CoGe site; pathways; off-target CRISPR issues; the “research parasites” drama, and more. The most compelling thing, though, is the really personal genomics story that Daniel MacArthur offers. You should read it. And then read the “research parasites” article (linked at the bottom), and wonder how that attitude would affect people who need answers from sequence data.

This week’s SNPpets illustrate that everyone’s back in the saddle after the holidays with plenty of chatter. New and updated databases, tools, and other news abound. The financial threat to well known databases like FlyBase, MGI, OMIM, Reactome, UniProt, etc–took my breath away though. Loved the RStudio cheat sheet. And the ProteinPaint lollipop plots of mutations looks great.

This week’s SNPpets offer a nutty new genome and a pine (just like pretty much every day of the week lately there are new genomes). Legal obstacles to data sharing, again. The TL;DR statement on human gene editing. The nerdiest Christmas tree evah from UCSC Genome Browser. New software (also like every day of the week). A Docker-based tool registry. [last one for this year, taking the holiday weeks off except for the annual tip review posts] the 3′ UTRome. Docker.

Oh, and by the way, Friday SNPpets will be off for the holidays, picking back up in January. The posts over the next week are the annual Tip of the Week reviews, with regular blogging resuming in the new year. Have great holidays, everyone!

This week’s SNPpets offer both science and humor. I think people get a little punchy around the holidays/end of semester. There’s software for assembly, a bioinformatics network for African topics, bioethics of gene editing, cancer and personalized medicine,  Dilbert comments on big data and health, interesting tools for open- and evidence-based medicine, microbiome concepts and a metagenomic journey. Most curious thing this week: the mouse poem constructed entirely from paper titles.

This week’s SNPpets include a range of things, from Pardis Sabeti’s recovery from a serious accident to tardigrade genome drama. There are new databases and tools such as the GMO sequence tracker in the EU, to new uses of tools such as Docker, to explore. Reports of a serious BLAST bug. A look at common spreadsheet formatting mistakes and some solutions. It’s not a gene-editing moratorium. And more.

This week’s holiday-abbreviated SNPpets include a paper on the NCBI Assembly resource–and a great slide right after that explaining what assembly is like; human traits and clinical issues (or not) as well as ecological traits and related issues; some work on diseases and some on drugs; and as usual some new software tools.

This week’s SNPpets include transcription factor binding site evolution–with their secret partners transposable elements; PrecisionFDA coming along; bad habits of bioinformaticians; new synthetic biology tools and rock star status; consumer reluctance to share their health data; Russian genomes on the way. And more, including the XKCD on DNA in case you missed it.

This week’s SNPpets include a dinoflagellate genome; artificial base pairs in use; the relative joy of entrepreneurship graphed; hidden Galaxy features; free image resources from NIH; new and updated tools for various purposes–as always; a trait-matching challenge; and veterans who continue to do service by offering their DNA to researchers. Oddest thing: an ear built with van Gogh’s DNA. And more….
