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…

  • A science education project for kids called Lab Rats! is  out there. Pass  it on to parents and educators. [Mary]
  • The Open Microbiome Initiative http://openmicrobiome.org/ Hat tip to Jonathan Eisen, who describes it as: “Completely f*$&ing awesome”. [Mary]
  • Newest version of CNV Workshop tool available. H/T to CHOP_CBMi. [Mary]
  • The Smithsonian Institution’s first-ever mobile app – see what your neanderthal relatives may have looked like with MEanderthal prehistoric makeover app – I saw it in the “RandomSamples” from Science magazine, Vol 328, pg 957 May 21 2010. [Jennifer]
  • I found Anarchy for the EMBC by Howy Jacobs quite an amusing read. [Jennifer]
