Friday SNPpets

Welcome to our Friday feature link collection: SNPpets. During the week we come across a lot of links and reads that we think are interesting, but don’t make it to a blog post. Here they are for your enjoyment…

  • RT @bio_insilico: Nurses at forefront of genomics in health care – Science Codex: Nurses at forefront of genomi… #biotech #genomics
  • RT @NIAIDBioIT: NIAID Bioinformatics is now in the Twitterverse!  Follow us to stay up-to-date on bioinformatics news and software updates at NIAID and NIH
  • RT @OpenHelix: An Interview with David Haussler RT @Genome10K: Trail-blazer indeed!
  • RT @carlzimmer: The generous @paldhous provides his free toolbox for data visualization: #scio13
  • RT @MICROUVic: There is a new, FREE journal that is devoted to publishing genomic sequencing data. Cancel all of your social plans!
  • RT @John_Idol: Never been more proud of any other project in my life, new @openworm website is live – :)
  • RT @avsmith: Slap down of recent terrible Genetic Diversity and Economic Development paper.
  • RT @DNAday: Join us 2/14 for Bob Waterston/Sir John Sulston talk on public access to genomic data. #HGP10  [Note–I asked if this would be streamed, here’s the reply: This won’t be streamed live but will be available ASAP on @genome_gov’s you tube channel]
  • Zoiks: RT @neilfws: Ensembl Genomes release 17: “Due to this sheer number of new genomes…BioMart access is no longer possible” [But my favorite sentence this week was, actually: “A missing chromosome in beetle (Tribolium castaneum) was also reinstated, and its gene models updated”]
