This tip of the week introduces the Varietas interface to search human variation data. Visit our blog at http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=5287 for more details about this tool and its features, and the full reference.
Bob Fulton of Washington University discusses the sequencing platforms in use at this large scale genome center on June 2, 2010 at the "Sequencing, Finishing, Analysis in the Future" meeting in Santa Fe, NM.

This week's tip in 2nd part in a 5 part series of tips following one variation in an individual's genome across several databases and resources to find out what information we gather about the clinical association of that variation. This wee we look at dbSNP, VarView and OMIM.
For more information about this resource, see our blog post at http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=4520. The Cancer Genome Workbench gathers cancer information from a wide variety of projects and presents the cumulative data as high-level summary visualizations. With just a bit of acclimation, researchers can utilize this resource to further their understanding of cancer genomics.
