Keeping current in the field just continues to become more challenging, as the number of publications each week, and the number of big data sets, continues to outpace a normal person’s ability to read. Reddit’s bioinformatics sub is trying out something new to find useful nuggets.
This thread is the beginning of hopefully a new tradition in /r/bioinformatics! The idea is to discuss any papers you guys find interesting, helped you solve a problem recently, or whatever reason.
- We’ll create a thread like this every last friday of the month
- Let it be sticky for about two weeks
- People have some time to read it and discuss it
- Rinse and repeat!
[more details over there…]
I think it’s a nice idea, and I’ll be looking in. Contributing when I can. I added yesterday’s tip paper on ClinGen, because I think the field needs to think a lot about the standards for getting bioinformatics data out to clinical endpoints. Check it out.
