TIP OF THE WEEK
Knowledge sharing from industry professionals
Accessing TCGA cancer data has been approached in a variety of ways. This week's tip of the week highlights a web-based portal for improved access to the data in different ways. The Stanford Cancer Genome Atlas Clinical Explorer is aimed at helping id... MORE
Variant viewers are very popular. As we get more and more sequence data, the challenge of looking across many samples only gets more and more important. So I always like to see how different groups are doing this. I'm still waiting for the killer app ... MORE
From the same team that brings us the IntAct database for protein interaction data, the Complex Portal offers insights for additional levels of protein interactions that are organized around a biological function. Although there are various resources ... MORE

THE OPENHELIX BLOG
A genomics resources news portal
This week's SNPpets have a range of resources--from food crops to public health to personal genomics. Really, it's touching everything we do now. A resource filling a gap--digenic diseases--was new to me: DIDA. A nice collection of miRNA resources. And a popular item about NGS can go "horribly wrong". An awesome FAQ. The final JABBA award. There's a lot more too--great week for fascinating reads. 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 ... MORE
Accessing TCGA cancer data has been approached in a variety of ways. This week's tip of the week highlights a web-based portal for improved access to the data in different ways. The Stanford Cancer Genome Atlas Clinical Explorer is aimed at helping identify clinically relevant genes in the cancer data sets. They note that the data is available in other places and tools, from tools we've talked about before such as cBioPortal, UCSC Cancer Genomics Browser, and interacting with the StratomeX features. But this portal helps peoplt to quickly focus on clinical parameters in ways that aren't as stra... MORE
This week's SNPpets explore the past and the future. There's the effect of climate on human population movements. And a correction to another ancestry paper. We have retro bioinformatics hardware. The creator of the ribbon protein diagrams appears. Top stories from last year, and from this year (so far). And Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Anne Wojcicki on a "future without disease" (oh, please--but that was the headline writer's fault, the interview isn't that pollyanna-ish). There's also the future of genetic discrimination and GINA. And future disease outbreak tools. Have a look. Welcome to our Frid... MORE
