Picks of the week from RB? Holiday effect

Although some fascinating (yet few -I blame it on the Holiday-) molbio-related posts were aggregated to this week, none of them met our criteria for selection (see my opening post on the matter).

A few were close though, and discuss some interesting papers or topics, so I'll just link to them:

1. Two posts by Dan Koboldt at MassGenomics:

a) SNP Discovery in NGS Data, Atlas-SNP2, and VarScan and
b) Sanger Adds Two Cancer Genomes (the articles discussed in this post where the subject of a selected post on a recent Picks of the Week) .

2. A useful guide for the bioinformatics tool builders, by Sandra Porter at Discovering Biology in a Digital World

3. Finally, Prion Propagation: Survival of the Fittest, by Brian Appleby at CJB Blogger.

That's it for this week. Stay tuned for more MolBio Research Highlights!
