Pentecostalism is a renewal movement within Christianity, and like many such movements, it adheres to the inerrancy of scripture and the necessity of accepting Christ as personal Lord and Savior, while placing special emphasis on direct personal experiences. A main tenet of Pentecostalism is the belief in empowerment, which leads to spiritual gifts, such as speaking in tongues (glossolalia), divine healing, and the ability to handle snakes without being harmed.The interesting thing about speaking in tongues is that no Pentecostal … go to blog

London Calling was last week and Clive Brown's big revelation was a peek at Oxford Nanopore's progress on enabling peptide sequencing on the platform. Peptide sequencing and identification is a hot area right now, with multiple startups looking to provide alternatives to mass spectrometry approaches. Clive stressed that the technology is very early in development. It's definitely a clever fork of the existing DNA sequencing technology. However, it also illustrates a significant organizational challenge which Oxford. So I'm going to … go to blog
Baylor University is a Baptist university. Thus, at Baylor, they celebrate a research creed whereby “research, scholarship and faith guide the mind in understanding the complex diversity of God’s creation.” At Baylor University evolution is taught, but the Biology Department finds it necessary to provide an explanation as to why they do that. Most universities do not provide an explanation.What do researchers do when their findings contradict elements of the Christian faith or the Christian practice? Do they manipulate the … go to blog

GRCh38.p14 (GCA_000001405.29/GCF_000001405.40), the latest update to the human reference assembly, has been released! It adds 69 new patch scaffolds, 51 of which are FIX patches that update sequences on the GRCh38 reference chromosomes or alternate loci, while 18 are NOVEL patches, providing new alternate representations for complex genomic regions that are inadequately represented by a single sequence. Two previously released FIX patches were also updated. With this release, the reference assembly contains a total of 250 patch scaffolds (164 FIX, … go to blog

Google drive is great for sharing documents and other small files but it's definitely not suited to moving many large files around. For example I just received 170 fastq files that are about 200 MB in size. If you use the browser to download the whole folder, the web app will zip the contents for you which will take a LOOONG time. Alternatively you can download each and every one of those files one by one, which is annoying and … go to blog

Clive Brown gave a "mezzanine" update on Oxford Nanopore just over two weeks ago titled "The Knights Who Say Me". Clive reiterated a lot of prior guidance but did make a few announcements that are relevant to the ongoing history of the Oxford Nanopore platform - and blessedly, he omitted for time's sake a deep coverage of that history or the usual Nanopore 101 tutorial. In particular, two long-time components of the platform are now headed for the exits.Read more … go to blog

Today in Science a slew of papers have been published from the Telomere-to-Telomere (T2T) Consortium. The flagship paper details the generation of a complete genome assembly from a Complete Hydatiform Mole (CHM) cell line which is telomere-to-telomere for all 22 autosomes plus X (assembly T2T-CHM13); the companion papers apply this groundbreaking assembly to a number of biological questions. PacBio CSO Jonas Korlach and I chatted yesterday about the PacBio contribution to the flagship as well as two of the other … go to blog

It seems like an age ago, but in fact it was only mid-January 2022 when this happened: The answers are yes and yes again. One excellent source of weather station data is the Weather Underground. They used to have an API which could be accessed through an R package, rwunderground. This API was retired several … Continue reading Using R to detect the pressure wave from the 2022 Hunga Tonga eruption in personal weather station data go to blog
If you sit in the intersection of “likes Australian Rules football / finds sport statistics interesting / is on Twitter”, you’ve probably come across Swamp.

“As a rule, theologians know nothing of this world, and far less of the next; but they have the power of stating the most absurd propositions with faces solemn as stupidity touched by fear.”“It is a part of their business to malign and vilify the Voltaires, Humes, Paines, Humboldts, Tyndalls, Haeckels, Darwins, Spencers, and Drapers, and to bow with uncovered heads before the murderers, adulterers, and persecutors of the world.

Element Biosciences is launching their AVITI sequencing system today in a blitz of events. At February’s end they flew me out to visit their San Diego facility and gave me quite amazing access to senior staff, Board of Directors members for an entire day of discussions. They even videotaped me! Many of those discussions got deep into technical weeds in a most enjoyable manner. But for those wishing to jump straight to key details, AVITI is a desktop instrument priced … go to blog

High-throughput sequencing has accelerated human genetics research in countless ways, from rapid newborn sequencing to Mendelian disorders to the many discoveries being made in common, complex disease cohorts. Yet one of the most fundamental benefits of this technology is our ability to catalogue human genetic variation in large cohorts of individuals.

A bizarre incident happened on Twitter yesterday. Someone contemplating using Oxford Nanopore to sequence a large, complex genome on a tight budget was asking technical questions about whether to optimize their libraries for overall yield or long inserts, and was getting useful advice from some of the top academic scientists who have propelled ONT forward. One of them suggested using Circulomics products, and that was followed by an ominous yet vague warning from an ONT employee. But not just any … go to blog
