TIP OF THE WEEK

Knowledge sharing from industry professionals

Direct to Consumer Genetic Testing and Genetic Counselling

At OpenHelix, we remember the days when people didn't even barely have documentation with their software when they put it out (yah, I know, it still varies). But outreach really is getting better. There are journals now that are also enforcing more re... MORE

On The Turing Completeness of PowerPoint

This week's video tip is...well...atypical. It's not about a software tool, per se. Or, is it...? ... MORE

Neandertal Inheritance and Consequences

Ok, it's been a while since this was a regular feature. But I am still finding that I want to show some videos of science topics and software tools sometimes. So it may not be a regular feature, but I will be highlighting some videos that seem interes... MORE

This week I left the "call to action" tweet at the top--you can vote for GenBank every day. But the other tweets are new this week. First, don't fall for the fake grant scam.

This week there's an actual call to action in the tweets. See Steven Salzberg's tweet about the 2017 Service to America award. You can vote for Genbank. Really--try to imagine the last couple of decades without it. And it's time to celebrate government science in front of the public. Go vote. After that, come back for the cheese and pomegranite genome. Most intriguing chatter this week was the ancient plant genome stuff at the bottom. I keep trying to tell people how far ahead agriculture is in genomics applications. Human researchers: ZZZZzzzzzzzzz. Welcome to our Friday feature link collectio... MORE
