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 could vote for GenBank every day until the end of the competition. Today's the last day. Vote once more. And remember how resources like GenBank let us have foundations for other important resources as well. There are new resources in this week's SNPpets that are definitely descendants of GenBank. Also, more tit-for-tat on the Venter paper privacy issue drama. A very personal genome story from a personal genome researcher. Makes you think about the policy issues in new ways. Also, policy on gene editing in plants. The first species to ... MORE

This week I left the "call to action" tweet at the top--you could vote for GenBank every day until the end of the competition. On other fronts, there's big media on Venter's DNA re-identification article--but there's also significant blowback on that. A series of tweets in there gets to that. Otherwise, more of the other cool things in genomics around the tools available and around other species. 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 e... MORE

This week I left the "call to action" tweet at the top--you can vote for GenBank every day in August. And I know it's September now, but I wanted to go and check--and they made it to the final four! So go vote for GenBank some more. Same link works fine. Other things this week: NYTimes shows more stories of people whose recreational genomics endeavors reveal family secrets. One of them is what's in the reference genome? I don't think the answer came up completely clearly, but it reminds me I want to look into that again. The breakthrough cancer diagnostics kit is approved. The girlfriend meme. ... MORE
