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…

  • Arrogance will get you everywhere – Including hot water: “Venter’s unfamiliar quotations” (old but amusing from BioTechniques – I’m catching up on some reading…) [Jennifer]
  • Boy, this is a song we hear over and over….and it’s a drag: RT @iGenomics: RT @pjacock: AT #ISMB: Lots of funding for data generation, some for #bioinformatics tool development, almost none for training. But needed [Mary]
  • RT @eurogene: wld be interested to read feedback on this: Microsoft offers scientists data analytics tool http://cnet.co/nqCzRg [Mary]
  • How research directions are actually chosen: RT @szintri: Sad but true: @phdcomics http://bit.ly/nORjtb . I’m just lucky my advisor wants me to research such exciting things! [Mary]
  • RT @ewanbirney: Gotcha’s in genomics. 10 mistakes you don’t have to repeat (unless you really want to!) http://bit.ly/oN2mBk [Mary]
  • Interesting conversation on bioinformatics poster design–be sure to link to the original post about the poster too: RT @DoctorZen: Review and critique of a lovely conference poster by @bioinformatics: http://bit.ly/r0AyZl New at Better Posters! [Mary]
  • Speaking of posters, 10k Genome project offers tweets about a nice one in which they are mentioned [edited]: RT @Genome10K: Genome 10K Project on Poster.pdf sponsored by BGI and Science AAAS (application/pdf Object): http://bit.ly/p6qCCB [Mary]
  • Incredibly easy to create my profile here, and I was surprised that Google Scholar had my collection despite various forms of my name (with/without full first name, initials, etc): RT @szintri: Google Scholar now has profiles that auto-identifie your new publications, track citations, and calculate H-index: http://googlescholar.blogspot.com/2011/07/google-scholar-citations.html [Mary]
