This week’s SNPpets include an extensive list of commercial bioinformatics tools that’s been crowd-sourced, new resources for variation ranking and transposon detection, the 10K genome project path, and the chatter from the Future of Genomic Medicine conference–including that big story on cancers being found in pregnant women via non-invasive prenatal testing.
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…
