Genetic Data Discovery Online

The Tip of the Night for January 16, 2020 discussed the sharing of information by healthcare professionals on social media sites specifically tailored to them - such as Figure1; Doximity; and Sermo.

In the current era, when the mind of everyone in the legal field and the wider business world is never far from the coronavirus pandemic, make special note of This site was the first to make the genome sequence for COVID-19 available to the medical community. See this link on Virological, and the related article from the prestigious journal Science.

The post on Virological links to a post on GenBank, a genetic sequence database maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information.

Sites like Virological can give you insight into the software that is being used to analyze genetic data.

Researchers will discuss their use of the software, and post results obtained with it on the forum.
