About GGD

Many resources (e.g. Nature Reviews Genetics) offer a 10,000-foot view of the current trends in the field, reviews of various technologies, and guidelines on how to effectively design, analyze, and interpret experiments in human genetics and bioinformatics research. By comparison very few resources focus on the mundane, yet critical know-how for those on the ground actually doing the science (i.e. grad students, postdocs, analysts, and junior faculty). Getting Genetics Done aims to fill that gap by featuring software, code snippets, literature of interest, workflow philosophy, and anything else that can boost productivity and simplify getting things done in human genetics research.
