Friday SNPpets

This week’s SNPpets include a wide range of things. People are indoors and staying warm by typing, I think. Highlights include: the new cost-per-genome slide update; tool comparisons (which I always find useful); geek productivity charted; updates to the CoGe site; pathways; off-target CRISPR issues; the “research parasites” drama, and more. The most compelling thing, though, is the really personal genomics story that Daniel MacArthur offers. You should read it. And then read the “research parasites” article (linked at the bottom), and wonder how that attitude would affect people who need answers from sequence data.
