This week includes one of those stories that reminds me of the power of databases. See that diagnostic odyssey of a family with a child with mystery symptoms and the doctor who sleuthed out some information–then connected with other families awaiting answers (Hudson Alpha tweet). But then there’s also the looming issues of misuse of information, two tweets on that this week. More tools. More genomes. Wild plants, wild viruses, wild ancestors. Reactome graphical components are popular–if you make them, people will use them.

This week, quite a range. From crops in silico, to antique tumor samples to assess cancer genomes. Even older: assessing ancentral variants to battle todays viruses. That’s right–we are standing on the past and in the future. Deadly tropical snails. At NCBI–the end of BLink. And other useful things.

This week, DNA was indicted and decades later led to a conviction. Genomes of birch trees and shape-shifting butterflies. And the most interesting stuff to me is non-human, but dbSNP will stop accepting non-human species info. Sigh. Well, I do think alternative splicing is interesting too, and we have some of that this week. Human gene editing, tumors, and various types of personalized genomics were out and about this week as well. It’s not that I dislike humans (all the time), but I’m sort of agnostic on species.

This week is a pretty eclectic set of things. Ancestry and African Americans, oral history of genomics researchers, tools for various types of analyses, and another genome that created a caffeine pathway that’s so crucial to me. The most unusual item is probably that Microbiome board game. We live in interesting times.

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.

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).

This week was a busy and diverse week. From Bioinformatics as an Amusement Park, to the very serious FDA approval of 23andMe’s reports. From Lenski’s April Fool’s post to cancer databases. From diagnosing children with genomics details, to CRISPR sci-fi. We live in interesting times. But at least now we will be able to see everybody citing everybody else.

This week’s tips offer some software, including a pre-print from one of my favorite groups–the folks who do great visualizations of sets. I have talked about UpSet before, but now there’s an R package for it. Speaking of great visuals, check out the sponge-microbe symbiosis. And 10 legume genomes. Cannabis as a gateway to plant genomics. And a story of entrepreneurship, and how it ends.

And for kicks, there’s a video that I helped to script-edit that’s been popular: Are GMOs Good or Bad?

This week’s tips contain quite a range of things, from patent battles to drying tardigrades (probably somebody patented this?). I put in the goat genome again because I like goats. We have precision medicine, and mutants asking to not be discriminated against. Some interesting tools this week too.

This week we find that all biology is computational biology. And that coding is missing. And I loved the knitted example of chromosomes–knitting is code. Also, some new misuse of data, and new appropriate uses. Get a fungus mug. Patients are going to be getting data, but nobody in the public knows about it. It’s a secret.
