This week’s SNPpets consist of a lot more social and general public genomics tidbits than usual. I don’t know why–I don’t feel I was particularly looking for those over the week. There was a GINA-related ruling: a company fined for misuse of testing. Myriad was spanked for not giving patients’ information back. On the good news side, there’s educational opportunities for teachers on “personal genetics” too. As always, more software, more data. Some humor. Some head-shaking.
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…
I was asked what I consider the greatest hurdle to progress in my field. I answered data licenses, copyright law, and scientific publishers.
