Recently, I wrote a short peice for a great local science news & media outlet, Science In The News (SITN), to explain how population-scale genetic sequencing is driving major advances in precision medicine.
The article is targeted primarily for the lay public (i.e. non-specialists), so it's mostly jargon-free. It gets even better for those among us who are more visually inclined learners: a fellow PhD student at HMS, Brad Wierbowski, put together some great graphical figures to explain the core concepts (thanks Brad!).
fiddleIn this preprint we describe @nanopore analysis of CO-transcriptional Processing (nano-COP) that directly sequences nascent RNA. With human and Drosophila data, we answer the above questions and shed light on how splicing patterns are achieved (2/4)
mjpchaissonThis was a huge effort that we are all proud to have out! t.co/uyJw8luQhe . There are so many contributors it's impossible to thank everybody........ just kidding, thank you Ashley Sanders, Xuefang Zhao, Ankit Malhotra, David Porubsky, Tobias Rausch, @EugenomeUK...
