Welcome to our Friday feature link dump: 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…
- Idle computers for active research: read the article from GenomeWeb. [Jennifer]
- NAR Annual Web Server issue for 2010 is out. [Mary]
- Francis Collins: the extended genome anniversary interview covers regulation of personal genomics, the sequencing of children’s genomes, cancer, pharmacogenomics, and more. [Mary]
- Symphony of life: making music out of the human genome, a performance of DNA as music called Allele to be performed next month. [Mary]
- modENCODE data now available in WormBase. [Mary]
- OMG. You have to hear Paul Nurse describe his genealogy: Family Trees are Dangerous. I’m amazed. And I’m wondering how it would have gone if he’d had his + his family’s genomes sequenced instead of the way it played out. From The Moth and heard last night on my local NPR station, found the audio here. [Mary] PS: the process of the Green Card is additionally amusing–he was rejected first, despite knighthood + Nobel Prize. Snorf.
