TIP OF THE WEEK
Knowledge sharing from industry professionals
At the recent Discovery On Target conference, a workshop on data and analytics for drug discovery contained several informative talks. This week's Video Tip of the Week was inspired by the first speaker in that session, Georges Grinstein. Not only was... 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 G... MORE

A genomics resources news portal
This week's SNPpets includes updates to existing tools, like Reactome and IMG, the biggest JBrowse display I ever saw, various tidbits from #ASHG15 as word clouds, gene editing, slices through personalized medicine and rare diseases, and a Virtual Machine catalog.
