This week’s SNPpets include a FlyBook from FlyBase; deep thoughts on the cloud; “Sequence to Medical Phenotypes” software; DNA.land relaunching; reference genomes info; updated feature in ExAC; legal looking at “secret DNA computer source code” and secret DNA to thwart art theives; Rabbit Turds at Galaxy (really); bad documentation behavior. Also good communication behavior for genetic counselors. And more….
