THE OPENHELIX BLOG
A genomics resources news portal
This week's SNPpets include finding hidden treasures in a "big data" repository, genomic epidemiology and malaria, cannabis strain phylogeny, hackathons and lessons learned, ClinGen for clinical genomics, 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... https://twitter.com/brendanimal/status/601746103340503040 https://twitter.com/GaetanBurgio/status/601906885617324032 https://twitter.com/swcarpentry/status/6019155125373...
