I’ve been quiet for the last two weeks, largely due to some feverish last-minute analysis in the lead-up to this year’s Biology of Genomes meeting at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, where I spoke in (and co-chaired) the Genetics of Complex Traits session. Long-term readers may recall that I sparked off a minor controversy at last…

Regular readers will be aware that my last attempt to report on the presentations at last month’s Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Biology of Genomes meeting resulted in some controversy, as well as some fruitful (if sometimes heated) discussion on the topic of conference blogging. My next attempt will likely prove less divisive: I was kindly…

There has been some very interesting online discussion in a number of venues today about the topic of social media and scientific conferences. For those who missed my post yesterday, the discussion was sparked by an article in ScienceInsider reporting that Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory had produced a new policy on the use of social…

I’ve just been pointed to a post on ScienceInsider that mentions my recent coverage (also on Twitter) of the Cold Spring Harbor Biology of Genomes meeting, and the resulting request for clarification from some professional science reporters: In addition to reporting on genetic variation in a gene that is active in fast muscle fibers at…

It’s difficult to distill down a meeting as data-rich as the Cold Spring Harbor Biology of Genomes meeting, but here’s a first-pass attempt.

The GenomeWeb crew have been doing a great job of covering the Biology of Genomes conference – for more detail on the 1000 Genomes Project presentation see here (or here if you happen to have a subscription to In Sequence), and for a review of the panel discussion on genetic privacy (which I missed) see…

I’ll be spending the next few days at the Biology of Genomes meeting at Cold Spring Harbor, NY – one of the most awaited events on the genomics calendar. I plan to blog here about the major themes emerging from the meeting; you can also follow me on Twitter if you want shorter, punchier updates,…
