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…

  • ROFL: RT @madkayaker: Bioinformatics professor: “We’re going to skip over some stuff so we can get to the cocaine…exercise.” Best last word ever. [Mary]
  • Best line in a press release-based story I evah saw: “Which pretty much proves that dinosaurs had small brains. Or lacked culinary skills.” From Genetic Analysis Reveals History, Evolution of an Ancient Delicacy — Morels hat tip @franknfoode [Mary]
  • RT @kdpru: NCBI’s updated Bookshelp is quite nice. HINT: Browse to find NCBI resource documentation by filtering onType=Documentation & Publisher=NCBI [Mary]
  • RT @Chris_Evelo: Reactome portal at WikiPathways now life! [Mary]
  • Oh, man, some days twitter cracks me up. Quite the week for that: RT @lipscombe1: I got a warning from my employer’s computing dept as I googled ‘Naked Mole Rat genome’. Is there a less sexually appealing thing on Earth? [Mary]
