Oddest photo accompanying 1000 Genomes news

Right now on the Science section of The Guardian, I find this:

Er, what?

OK–but the real news is in Nature today. With an appropriate cover image.

Anyway, I’ve just barely had a chance to look over the paper. I often find the supplemental info is what I need (methods, software, etc), and that’s almost another hundred pages for one of them. So I don’t have any real conclusions yet.  Some of it was familiar to folks who may have been using the 1000 Genomes site already. We did a Tip of the Week on it recently and you can check that out to learn about the web site and the browser.

There’s also a Nature News piece that speaks to some of the highlights of the work. There was another interesting item in Nature about the number of human genomes we’ve got in the bag, and how many we should expect in the quite near term:  Human genome: Genomes by the thousand Wowsa. I’m trying to remember to call it the Data Bonanza as the folks at Beyond the Genome were trying to encourage, rather than one of the scary and more negative terms. But I’m daunted. Enthused. But daunted.

But it’s the topic-of-the-day in the science twittersphere. Figured I’d mention it.

As a reminder–if you want to use 1000 Genomes data and you’ll be at ASHG next week, there’s a tutorial/workshop you can sign up for.  Also, people have been asking questions about how to use the data at the BioStar discussion site (see the 1000 Genomes tag).  Another hot tip about ASHG is Daniel MacArthur tweeted today:

For those interested in the 1000G “gene-killing polymorphisms” story, I’ll be presenting an update next Thursday at ASHG.

And yes, I’m sorry the reference is longer than this post.
