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 WordCloud Plugin for Cytoscape is now available from the Gary Bader lab. You can read a description of it and download it on this page. [Jennifer]
  • Undergraduate Guide to R by Trevor Martin; hat tip to Storey Lab for that. [Mary]
  • Cool resource, hat tip to James: “Just discovered MorphBank, a database of creative commons licensed images of biological specimens: http://www.morphbank.net” [Mary]
  • Clinical trial for “Finicky Eating in Adults” (F.A.D.) – read a description and fill out the survey, if you are 18+ yrs old, a “picky eater”, and meet other criteria. [Jennifer]
  • GenAge: The Ageing Gene Database. Found this via tweet by attilacsordas, whose code was apparently involved in implementation of this. (I’ll bet that gets even hotter as a topic when boomers get their genomes sequenced…) [Mary]
