Noteworthy Blog: The Spittoon

For those of you who attend our computational genetics journal club every other week, you've all heard about this. Say what you will about the "consumer genetics" enterprise, 23andMe maintains an excellent blog. In their "SNPwatch" category, The Spittoon surveys and summarizes the latest findings in human genetics research before they hit the press. About 50% of their content comes from Nature Genetics advance online, and the rest from a smattering of other journals. They usually offer a one-page summary of the research findings detailing the associated SNP's rs-number, risk allele, odds ratio estimate, and the sample size used.
