A recent news article has been published in Nature entitled ‘Gene-expression study raises thorny ethical issues‘. This is to do with the recent massive release of data from the US$150-million Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) project, an NIH funded initiative amassing gene sequences, activities and other data from across 44 […]
A good and a bad example for how to share data from a high profile publication.
How to create a system that ranks human genomes and what to do to avoid discrimination.
Genome blogging refers to the sharing of experiences, results and data relative to a person’s genome. Normally, the information shared belongs to the blogger him/herself, but at times it belongs to other people (related or not) who provide their explicit consent to share personal data and views. Genome […]
I am doubly privileged to give two presentations at the Festival of Genomics London on January 31st. 12.25-12.50 – A family experience with open-access personal genomics Track: Whose genome is it anyway Venue: Theatre 4 Here I will be exploring the current boundaries by which an ordinary family […]
I have gone through the sequencing process three times, to do my genotype, my exome and my microbiome. As technologies evolve and new nuances are gained by the new improvements, sometimes it becomes necessary to repeat the sequencing. This made me think about statements that I have heard […]
CircosVCF is a web based visualisation tool of genome-wide variant data described in VCF files using circos plots. The provided visualisation capabilities, give an overview of the genomic relationship between genomes, and the integration of additional information such as experimental data or annotations. I am very glad they are using […]
This time it has caught me by surprise and to me is probably the greatest recognition of my work to date. By chance, a colleague of mine, Katie, was learning about the Human Genome, using the Wikipedia entry about it. To her surprise (and mine) she asked me whether some […]

You may have read about the release of my raw personal exome data in a previous entry. Although users were not required to report back any finding derived from this data, my hope was that some of them would return with interesting results.…
