TIP OF THE WEEK

Knowledge sharing from industry professionals

Direct to Consumer Genetic Testing and Genetic Counselling

At OpenHelix, we remember the days when people didn't even barely have documentation with their software when they put it out (yah, I know, it still varies). But outreach really is getting better. There are journals now that are also enforcing more re... MORE

On The Turing Completeness of PowerPoint

This week's video tip is...well...atypical. It's not about a software tool, per se. Or, is it...? ... MORE

Neandertal Inheritance and Consequences

Ok, it's been a while since this was a regular feature. But I am still finding that I want to show some videos of science topics and software tools sometimes. So it may not be a regular feature, but I will be highlighting some videos that seem interes... MORE

Friday SNPpets

This week includes one of those stories that reminds me of the power of databases. See that diagnostic odyssey of a family with a child with mystery symptoms and the doctor who sleuthed out some information--then connected with other families awaiting answers (Hudson Alpha tweet). But then there's also the looming issues of misuse of information, two tweets on that this week. More tools. More genomes. Wild plants, wild viruses, wild ancestors. Reactome graphical components are popular--if you make them, people will use them. Welcome to our Friday feature link collection: SNPpets. During the wee...

Video Tip of the Week: Direct to Consumer Genetic Testing and Genetic Counselling

At OpenHelix, we remember the days when people didn't even barely have documentation with their software when they put it out (yah, I know, it still varies). But outreach really is getting better. There are journals now that are also enforcing more reader-friendly ways to describe the research, with non-jargon summaries and some terrific visual aids. Increasingly, there are also videos associated with papers. I just came across this one, and thought it was a nice example of an important issue for non-scientists to access. So this looks at direct-to-consumer (DTC) services available in Europe, ... MORE

Friday SNPpets

This week, quite a range. From crops in silico, to antique tumor samples to assess cancer genomes. Even older: assessing ancentral variants to battle todays viruses. That's right--we are standing on the past and in the future. Deadly tropical snails. At NCBI--the end of BLink. And other useful things. 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/sciencemagazine/status/863098011911675904 https://twitter.com/La... MORE
