BioStar is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions. We are members of thecommunity and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at BioStar that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those questions and answers here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at BioStar.
This week’s question is a light summer diversion. But it’s actually something I’ve thought about before, so I had an answer.
Here is kind of a fun question: (mods feel free to move this post if you feel it doesn’t belong here)
Let’s say there are technologies available to fully sequence genomes/transcriptomes/whatever with extremely high accuracy and completeness. You are given enough resources to do whatever you want (within reason), what would be your dream experiment/project?
I was really hoping to see what other people would say, but there weren’t many ideas. Does everyone have all the money they need for their dream experiment? I hope so–but I doubt it. Is everyone too laced up to let their imagines run wild? I don’t know. I would really love to see some big and creative thinking, so if you have some thoughts please add them to the answers.
