TIP OF THE WEEK
Knowledge sharing from industry professionals
Usually for Thanksgiving week posting is light. In the past, we've all done turkey breeding and genomics, cranberry genome, and some people have included apples, potatoes, and more. But another key aspect of the holiday is to remember the past and tha... MORE
NCBI has produced some of the most in-depth and reliable bioinformatic tools, in large part because they've been building them since the earliest days of the genomics era. I once noted that I remember the oldest web interface, because it was one of t... MORE
This week's video tip is longer than usual. But if you want to dig deeper into all the data that you know is coming in to the UCSC Genome Browser, you want to use the Table Browser. If you've only used the genome browser interface, you are missing a l... MORE

Usually for Thanksgiving week posting is light. In the past, we've all done turkey breeding and genomics, cranberry genome, and some people have included apples, potatoes, and more. But another key aspect of the holiday is to remember the past and thank those who came before. And as I was watching this video that crossed my desk, I was thinking about our really ancient ancestors and their companions on the planet. And those who have created and preserved specimens in museum collections documenting the planet's history. Increasingly those things are being digitized when appropriate, and sometime... MORE
This week's SNPpets include transcription factor binding site evolution--with their secret partners transposable elements; PrecisionFDA coming along; bad habits of bioinformaticians; new synthetic biology tools and rock star status; consumer reluctance to share their health data; Russian genomes on the way. And more, including the XKCD on DNA in case you missed it. 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... MORE
This week's highlighted discussion generated a lot more chatter than many of them do. I didn't see that coming at this site. But apparently it's an issue that many groups have faced and had opinions on: what is the relative contribution of the wet lab vs bioinformatics side when it comes to the paper, and how to recognize that? Biostars is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions and issues. We are members of the community and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at Biostars that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Thursda... MORE
