Very good intro in the revolution that is ongoing in sequencing our genome
Mary Mangan originally shared:
 
This is a nice (and gentle) introduction to human genomics today. It's very current, and very much worth 20 minutes of your time.

Again, group education for free, a very good initiative
Stanford University originally shared:
 
Taught by two Googlers and available on YouTube free of charge, the class might be the largest instance of group education in the world, and the students—even around the world—seem to be eating it up.

This does not sound good for the euro ....
The systemic failure of the European financial system has been caused by the policy choices of the European Central Bank.

Interesting comparison between exome platforms
Major Exome Platforms Compared. A few recent studies have sought to compare commercial exome sequencing technologies. These kits, which selectively target coding regions for next-generation sequencing...

I like this idea!
Eric Schmidt originally shared:
 
Immigration is good for economic growth. We need to reduce the barriers standing in the way of free movement of people. #thinklongterm

And by the way we need to fix the lack of visas for foreigners who are highly trained in our Universities.

THIS is not a good time to be foreign. Anti-immigrant parties are gaining ground in Europe. Britain has been fretting this week over lapses in its border controls (see article).

Google easter eggs

Trying out some of these Google tricks -- they're pretty funny. Google has a great sense of humor.

Interesting trial in glioblastoma in UK.
David Basanta originally shared:
 
This looks very promising but for many brain cancers it seems difficult to believe you will have a clear vision of the edges of the tumour. Glioblastomas for example are known to be very invasive.
The idea of making brain tumours glow under UV light to help surgeons operate is being tested in a clinical trial in the UK.

Introduction
Currently I’m a postdoc active at the crossroads of our Center for Cancer Systems Biology (CCSB) and the Information Sciences in Imaging at Stanford (ISIS) initiative at theDepartment of Radiology at Stanford University. My research focuses on using advanced machine learning methods to integrate molecular biology data of cancer patients. These data sources are often called omics (e.g. genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, ...). In addition, I'm also investigating strategies to couple these omics data sources with medical imaging data (e.g. MRI, PET, CT, ...). For more information see: http://www.stanford.edu/~ogevaert/Home.html

Besides work, I like to go hiking in the extremely diverse nature that is available in California. My favorite destinations are Yosemite, Death Valley and Sequoia national park.

I also like reading science fiction and fantasy. For science fiction my favorite books are: 
- Orson Scott Card, Ender series
- Frank Herbert, Dune
- Peter F. Hamilton, the Night's Dawn Trilogy

Fantasy: 
- George RR Martin, A song of ice and fire
- Robert Jordan, the wheel of time
