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…

  • NWChem for High-Performance Computational Chemistry has recently gone Open Source. (HT GenomeWeb) [Jennifer]
  • DIYGenomics relates an iPhone app that compares consumer genomics collections. [Mary]
  • A poster on BridgeDB, a resource for ID conversions. Hat tip to Chris Evelo. [Mary]
  • Sanger has done a very nice site for personal genomics and general background on the human genome, aimed largely at the general public and at teachers. http://www.yourgenome.org/ [Mary]
  • Nice phylogenetic analysis site for building protein phylogenies and structure predictions: PhyloBuilder [Trey]
  • Wired magazine had a fun take on some metagenomics from the Galaxy team. [Mary]
  • Via tweet: RT @dgmacarthur: 50% of UK respondents would take free genetic testing, but only 5% interested at current DTC prices: http://bit.ly/b7tDvx [Mary]
  • I completely missed World Statistics Day. No fireworks. No cake. Nuthin’. Sigh. [Mary]

    As my browser is rendering this post (safari on a mac this morning) the line “Nice phylogenetic analysis site:” ends without a link.

    Thanks, fixed. My computer ‘power manager’ keeps killing off my computer. I was in the middle of that when it died. Forgot to add it in later. Time for a new computer :D
