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…

  • This made me laugh: RT @Btaylortherogue: @jwbucha when I was your age, we replicated genomic sequences by hand. . . with a scalpel. . . and a hammer. . . and a hot glue gun [Mary]
  • New knowledge to aid our understanding? Scientists find genes linked to migraines HatTip: Cyndy [Jennifer]
  • Must figure out how to invest in water…. RT @wildweatherdan: RT @drlucyrogers: “By 2020 it costs less to sequence a genome than to flush the toilet” @raymondmccauley  #singularityu [Mary]
  • Anybody tried these “brain games”? Lumosity: Your brain, just brighter [Jennifer]
  • Huh. Watson tweets (possibly). Occasionally. Who knew? Well, at least the 211 followers I saw when I caught this tweet: RT @genetics_blog: Never knew @CSHLJamesWatson was on Twitter. [Mary]
