Friday SNPpets

This weeks SNPpets include some useful images for teaching or presentations, Cabbages of Doom’s popular post on bioinformatics being like bench science, pathway visualization, deep learning for predicting variant effects, DNA tools for saving wildlife and (separately) for eliminating pathogens, and more. How Ashley Madision’s hacked data is like gene lists. Formats, formats, formats. Also some Docker chatter.

I was wondering where people got fabric posters printed too.

This week’s SNPpets include stories about SAMtools flags, vertebrate evolution in cartoon form (this is amazing), GenePattern release, a cool new feature in RStudio, EHRs, and the NIH Genomic Data Sharing policy site, PrecisionFDA, and precision medicine missing the point, an octopus, an elephant protein, and more.

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.
