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…

  • RoBuST “has been developed as root and bulb plant community research platform for integrated analysis of root and bulb genomics data.” Cool. I’m a big fan of roots and bulbs–oh, crap,  just realized I forgot to buy carrots for the Pav Bhaji.  Will try to get them tomorrow at the farmer’s market or Faneuil.  [Mary]
  • FEAST is a sensitive local alignment program with multiple rates of evolution. An interesting project as part of a Ph.D. thesis :). I haven’t tried it yet, but from the commentary, it looks good. [Trey]
  • Because Trey often talks about the CLOCK gene, I found this set of Nature papers interesting: Editor’s Summary – Clocking on to diabetes [Jennifer]
  • From BioMed Central: CIG-DB: the database for human or mouse immunoglobulin and T cell receptor genes available for cancer studies plus a link to the actual site (free, no registration required):  CIG-DB [Jennifer]
  • announcement: GMOD Europe 2010, 13-16 September 2010, Cambridge UK [Jennifer]
  • As most parents and anyone who has watched a child over time knows, a large portion of our personalities are genetic. But like height and sexuality, they aren’t easily reduced to single (or even multiple) gene causes as this recent GWAS research is showing. [Trey]
  • There’s a site that is fielding questions about predominantly on Next-Gen type sequencing related issues: http://i.seqanswers.com/ [Mary]
