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…

  • RT @bffo: Video from Steve Jones BCGSC/BCCA Bioinformatics Insight: Introduction to #bioinformatics http://t.co/mi779XiV via @FuturisticSci1 [Mary]
  • Much great twitter buzz for this paper: RT @kshameer: Congrats @soumya_boston. Excellent article on computational approaches for variant interpretation http://t.co/JNhpGlgn #bioinformatics [Mary]
  • Nice collection of tools & databases under the “DB & Tools” tab from the Korean Bioinformation Center, or KOBIC [Jennifer]
  • If you’ve got a subscription to Science, this is an interesting read: “Neuroscience – Playing by Ear” [Jennifer]
  • RT @kristiholmes: RT @NLM_SIS: Show off Your Apps: Innovative Uses of NLM Information winners!!! http://ow.ly/6PGHc #medlibs #bioinformatics [Mary]
  • Interviews on the Future Methods in Proteomics, from BioTechniques.com [Jennifer]
  • Nice Figure. No really, that’s its name: a roundup of the nicest figures recently published in scientific journals. And one of them was from the recent potato genome sequencing paper. http://nicefigure.org/ You can submit cool ones. Nice idea for encouraging good representations.
