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 Cuban bioinformatics group announces updates to their Cytoscape plug-in. “A new update of SysBiomics database is ready. SysBiomics contains the data feeding BisoGenet network building process; it was updated with most recently versions of protein-protein interactions sources (DIP, BIOGRID, HPRD, MINT and INTACT), GO and KEGG databases as well as the latest information on genes an proteins form Entrez Gene and Uniprot .” Bioinformatics Group Cool–I think that’s the first tool I know about from Cuba.  [Mary]
  • “In October’s “Nature Genetics”, and just in time for pie-making: …but where’s the gene that keeps the doctor away?” [Trey, via a colleague’s email :) ]
  • Cool new site on the History of Vaccines. Hat tip to Tara at Aetiology. [Mary]
  • RT @kshameer: RT: @suganthibala: 200 exomes resequenced, found many rare nonsyn SNPs #genomics #bioinformatics [Mary]
