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!).
aaronquinlanThis is an odd time to be posting this, but we have open slots for T32 Postdoctoral Fellowships in Genomic Medicine. If you are interested in research into rare disease, mechanisms of germline and somatic mutation, or method development please DM. Also please share.
JswLabPerturb-seq is a powerful tool for understanding genes and genetic networks at the single-cell level. We developed a method for large-scale Perturb-seq screens with flexible guide designs and targeted sequencing. Check out our work in @NatureBiotech: t.co/aXMkj1fcGK
