TIP OF THE WEEK
Knowledge sharing from industry professionals
And now for something completely different. Typically we highlight software that's nucleotide or amino acid sequence related in some way. But this software is on a whole 'nother level. It looks at interactions between species. This week we highlight G... MORE
When we go out and do workshops, we get a lot of requests from researchers who would like some guidance on cancer genomics tools. Our particular mission has been to aim more broadly at tools that are of wide interest and not to focus on a particular d... MORE
Typically we highlight web-based tools for our Tips of the Week. But sometimes there's a tool that has some novel visualizations that we want to note that might require a user to do a download and installation. This week's tool is one of those--BANDAG... MORE

This week's SNPpets includes, well, actual pets this week. BGI is selling edited pigs. Welcome to the future. There's more future, too--see the tweet by Timothy Read about where NGS sequencing will go. And I, for one, welcome our new "smart toilet" overlords. NCBI is cleaning up some of the past (finally). The top 10 useful bioinformatics skills list is compiled. The wrap up of 1000 Genomes project. And a heated discussion of authorship as it pertains to software projects was really interesting. And more.... Welcome to our Friday feature link collection: SNPpets. During the week we come across ... MORE
This week's highlighted discussion at Biostars was one that I opened. I've been thinking a lot about this, because I'm seeing it come up in a number of different ways. There are folks who are googling and finding genomics nerds in a variety of places. Some of the communities will be more welcoming than others. But I think it's in our best interest to be helpful to families with data, and not come off too harsh because it's not exactly how our forum works.... Biostars is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions and issues. We are members of the community and find it ... MORE
And now for something completely different. Typically we highlight software that's nucleotide or amino acid sequence related in some way. But this software is on a whole 'nother level. It looks at interactions between species. This week we highlight GloBI, the Global Biotic Interactions database. Before you start thinking of Bambi and butterflies, though, consider the image shown right at the beginning of the slide presentation about this project (slide 2). It includes interactions such as lunch. Here's where it started to get me thinking about the implications for genomics. There have been som... MORE
