This week’s SNPpets include free passes for Phil Bourne’s keynote talk in Boston next week, software for analysis of the effects of protein variants, interpreting your own genome, a book review of a tome on bioinformatics that’s getting very good chatter among the practitioners, free image analysis tools for microscopy, and more….
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…
- Bostonians–take note, next Tuesday: via @CHI_Healthtech: Don’t miss @pebourne Keynote “The Vision for Data at the NIH,” 4/21 at #BioIT15. Free Passes Available – bit.ly/O5p8TS

Note: We might need to change the format of FridaySNPpets, since Twitter just made it harder to capture the text format for pasting. But embedded tweets may not be searchable, which is one reason we’ve done these this way. Anyway, stay tuned.
