A lots of interesting stories on genomics came out in the last few weeks. For example, just within a span of two weeks days, BGI got featured in three big popular press. First Bloomburg Business Week claimed “BGI’s Young Chinese Scientists Will Map Any Genome”, later MIT Technology review gave us an inside look at BGI with the article titled “Inside China’s Genome Factory”, and just yesterday, Wall Street Journal focused on one specific and bit controversial project from BGI with article titled “A Genetic Code for Genius?”. Not just, big foot genome got published in a brand new journal.

Other  interesting stories to read and these include WSJ asks two scientists whether healthy people should have their genome sequenced, an interview with PacBio CEO, and Jackson Lab’s @markgenome explains why genetic diversity matters for mouse models.
