TIP OF THE WEEK
Knowledge sharing from industry professionals
Browsing around genomic regions, layering on lots of associated data, and beginning to explore new data types I might come across are things that really fire up my brain. For me, visualization is key to forming new ideas about the relationships betwee... MORE
We've been doing training on the UCSC Genome Browser for over 10 years now. We've seen it grow from just a few genomes and a few tracks to the enormous trove of information it is today. In fact, one of the toughest things about training is how to bala... MORE
The multiple sequence alignment editing question recently on our What's the Answer? feature was popular. We have covered MSA editors in the past, and we include a bit on Jalview in our Clustal tutorial, but I hadn't revisited them lately. In preparati... MORE

This week's SNPpets include definition confusion in "epigenetics", two HIPPIES, a new mouse ENCODE browser, living figures (new ways to interact with published data), and new features at the Drug-Gene Interaction database (DGIdb). Oh--and the woolly mammoth genome. 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/cshperspectives/status/587980861980684289 https://twitter.com/BioInfo/status/589170244024926208 https... MORE
Previous What's the Answer? posts that we did on something at Reddit Bioinformatics have been popular. So occasionally I'll be highlighting interesting threads from the bioinformatics subreddit that people might find interesting (or amusing). On to this week's highlighted question. When I first looked there were just a couple of ideas--but it generated a lot of interesting suggestions. Two of which I added to my Netflix queue already. Movies for Bioinformaticians Hello there, I am organising a lab social for about 24 bioinformaticians. Any ideas for movies I can put to the vote? -- Proxima256 T... MORE
Browsing around genomic regions, layering on lots of associated data, and beginning to explore new data types I might come across are things that really fire up my brain. For me, visualization is key to forming new ideas about the relationships between genomic features and patterns of data. But frequently I want to take this to the next step--asking where else these patterns appear, how many other instances of this situation are there in a data set, and maybe adding additional complexity to the problem and refine the quest. This is not always easy to do with primarily visual software tools. Thi... MORE
