TIP OF THE WEEK
Knowledge sharing from industry professionals
This week's video tip was prompted by a couple of things. First, it was a tweet from FlyBase, about their video channel. It's been a while since we'd done a FlyBase Tip of the Week, so that was enough of a reason. https://twitter.com/FlyBaseDotOrg/sta... MORE
Lately I've been keeping an eye on a lot of the tools that link individuals with sequence data, their phenotypes, and researchers/physicians who may either study or treat the associated medical issues (see MyGene2 most recently) . But there's a lot of... MORE
The team at UCSC Genome Browser continues to update their resources and offer new ways to find and visualize features of interest to researchers. One of the newer features is the "multi-region" option. When it was first launched, I did a tip on how t... MORE

This week's tips contain quite a range of things, from patent battles to drying tardigrades (probably somebody patented this?). I put in the goat genome again because I like goats. We have precision medicine, and mutants asking to not be discriminated against. Some interesting tools this week too. 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/NatureBiotech/status/842779983026311168 https://twitter.com/ThePlant... MORE
This week we find that all biology is computational biology. And that coding is missing. And I loved the knitted example of chromosomes--knitting is code. Also, some new misuse of data, and new appropriate uses. Get a fungus mug. Patients are going to be getting data, but nobody in the public knows about it. It's a secret.

This week I gave a pub talk on the UCSC Genome Browser. It was the first time I'd tried a more general-public version of this. It was huge fun. And it was great timing to have this example of 5000+ samples from autism families to make the case about how hard it is to visualize all this data we are getting. But I also talked about microbes. I even mentioned to goat genome. The benefits and the trip-wires of misuse of personalized data were covered. We touched on restoration of extinct species. So it was a lot like this post, actually.... But I didn't have the threat to GINA until today. Alas--I ... MORE
