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 @BioinfoTools: Some thoughts on science journal Nature offering statisticians to their authors:
  • Ha ha ha! RT @dgmacarthur: @genomesunzipped @NeuroMinded Yes: every base is sacred, every base is great. When a base gets wasted Ewan gets quite irate.
  • RT @carlzimmer: Here’s a paper title I’d like to see: “The Genome of the Silver Maple Is Like the Genomes of Every Other Frigging Maple, Except More Boring”
  • But then this: RT @VinJLynch: @carlzimmer I’d like to see “White Oak Genome Provides Unique Insights into Bourbon”…
  • RT @ensembl: Nice balanced article on the #ENCODE controversy.
  • RT @phidias51: Just figured out how @utopiadocs connects you w/other researchers. Click Altmetrics, see who tweeted the article, follow them.
  • Snorf (about the project) RT @phylogenomics: OMG @atulbutte we need to do all the microbiomes from these bulls – it would be the 1000bullshits project
  • RT @marc_rr: The strategies which a class of students uses to annotate bacterial genomes with #bioinformatics and #biocuration:
  • RT @phylogenomics: The Tree of Life:  The need for a phylogeny driven genomic encyclopedia of eukaryotes
  • RT @_inundata: Dear every journal,
    1. Open a @GitHub org account.
    2. If authors have a repo for a paper, fork it after acceptance & link it to it.
