It’s been over eight years since Oxford Nanopore presented the first ever nanopore sequencing data at the AGBT conference in February 2012, where they provided an overview of the hardware and software behind the GridION and MinION systems. Even today Oxford Nanopore could be seen as a dark horse. Their GridION platform is used … Cluster Sequencing with Oxford Nanopore’s GridION System Read More » go to blog
It is usually thought that we can confidently say that if our genotyping results say that we carry a certain genetic variant, that we actually do carry that variant. However, why does this not mean that we can be confident about the prediction about disease risks? There are many risks and benefits associated with population … How Well Can a Screening Test Predict Disease Risk? Read More » go to blog
Researching your family history is a fascinating experience. Even if you find out that your ancestors led very normal lives. Just being able to see the name and life milestones of your great-great-great-great-great (etc) grandmother is exciting. It’s amazing to be able to track your ancestry. But it can also be a confusing process. This … Best Genealogy Software Read More » go to blog

I ran into an annoying problem last night and was quite steamed, but had the discipline to wait until morning to vent publicly about it. Now I'm more in a morose mood on the subject, not furious but still quite frustrated. The quick version of what happened is I'm belatedly trying to go through some nicely documented reproducible analysis code to explore some concerns I have with the analysis, and the code is working on an SRA entry -- and … go to blog

Singular Genomics reported earnings last week and delivered an unpleasant surprise: inability of suppliers to make timely deliveries of key (but unspecified) hardware components have slowed G4 instrument production to a very slow crawl. Given the lively competition in the desktop short read space, this is a serious setback for Singular's commercial launch. Read more » go to blog

AGBT broke up a couple of weeks ago and I've failed to write anything here so far. It was frustrating not attending, but not registering for a meeting in February seemed prudent given the pattern of COVID waves - I hadn't considered (nor would have wanted to bank on) AGBT organizers reacting so well and rescheduling the meeting. It sounds like a number of attendees did catch the virus at the meeting -- though I'm presumably still quite protected by … go to blog

A bit over a year ago Google made one of their dreaded announcements that they would be slowly killing off one of their acquisitions, in this case FeedBurner. Well over a thousand of you have been using FeedBurner to follow me via email. Follow.it has a wonderful free plan that can take over all of the previous functionality and I could just import the old subscription listRead more » go to blog

To date, the new entrants targeting Illumina’s short read business have been aiming at the middle of Illumina’s range, trying to take on NextSeq. Element Biosciences is touting high accuracy for a low price. Omniome (now PacBio) also has positioned itself to tout accuracy. Singular Genomics is claiming to enable great flexibility and fast runs. But all aimed at NextSeq. As part of the run up to AGBT another company is decloaking from stealth mode: Ultima Genomics, however they are … go to blog
Biomedical journal articles are full of categorical data, showing data for control and case groups using barplots with whiskers. While these are popular, that type of chart can hide the underlying data patterns and are discouraged by statisticians. There are other alternatives such as boxplots, violin charts and strip charts, but I've become a big fan of beeswarm charts lately. The reason is that beeswarms show the distribution just like violin plots but have the benefit of showing the individual … go to blog

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
