I notice that Fortune has a story on personal genomics up, Genetic sequencing gets personal Biotech firm Illumina will sequence your entire genetic code — and throw in a Mac — for $48,000: So far, personalized genomics make up just a small fraction of Illumina’s revenue. High costs keep sequencing out of reach for most…

Cattle genetic variation & evolution

There are some papers out on the genome of the domestic cow out right now. ScienceNews has an overview: Two competing research teams have cataloged the “essence of bovinity” found in the DNA of cattle, but not without disagreement on some essential points. Reporting online April 23 in Science and April 24 in Genome Biology,…

Copy number & common variants

Science News has an interesting piece up, Shared Differences: The architecture of our genomes is anything but basic. The main focus is on genetic variation, the possibility that there might be important information in copy number variance, and that the common disease-common variant hypothesis is dead. At least for complex traits that we’re interested in…
