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 SNPpets includes some info on the Brexit fallout, at least some good news as it affects EMBL-EBI. The genomes of foodborne illness are being wrangled. A note about HapMap retirement and data access. The PDB tour of proteins is really fun. I thought we were done with single genomes of an organism with a name (like Susie the orang or Cinnamon the cat), but we now have Santander the 1200 year-old olive tree. See also high-throughput screening in plants--and a fitbit for plants in the field. Software citation principles. Genome papers vs genome reports. GTEx resources at UCSC Genome Bro... MORE
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/status/745957670436347905 But it also came just after I was thinking about the importance of the model organisms, based on the campaign by the model organism databases to save their funding. Here's a tweet from the yeast genome database (SGD) with a plea: https://twitter.com/yeastgenome/status/745751403197407233 But this letter cites yeast, flies, Wor... MORE
This week's SNPpets have lentils. I love lentils. But also zombies. And a baronet established by DNA sequencing. A need for some CRISPR edting. And the sudden retirement of HapMap. There's also an attempt to save the model organisms from retirement or zombie-ness. Wormbase/Flybase/ZFIN et al need your signature. I wish signaures could save science from the Brexit as well. But I suspect that's unlikely. 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 ... MORE
