Hi, I'm Mad! Welcome to my blockchain rant. Specifically: for genomes, health, and personal data. "Why aren't you using blockchain?" they ask me. I'll tell you why! Maybe you can RT this – or quote specific points – to inoculate other folks against fuzzy-brained BS 😞 1/16

Last year I was excited to sequence amplicons while on a field expedition with . Now it looks like we can go from collecting to whole genome sequencing in about a day! Fingers crossed for a good Glasswing butterfly genome assembly at the Smithsonian 🦋

In which we discovered a >2Mb read. Out now in Bioinformatics - software has a few new tweaks from the preprint - my favourite being the ability to load a paf mapping file and directly visualise mappings on the bulk file. Nice work

It sounds a little surprising. Possible reasons; 1. They are the same taxon but they categorise as something different between 16S and shotgun databases. 2. Some kind of contamination during the PCR 3. The PCR selectively amplifies a rare taxon for some weird reason

This is a fascinating paper looking at how crowd-sourcing can be used in global health - some useful ideas for data generation. real-time epidemiological data collection, and more.
