We hope you’ve enjoyed the first week of posts on Genomes Unzipped. We thought we would fill you in with a bit more information about the website, and what it has to offer.
If you want to keep up-to-date with new posts, you can subscribe to the RSS feed. For information on new posts and other GNZ-related news, you can follow our Twitter feed @GenomesUnzipped. If you are interested in following the discussions that go on in the comments you can do so using the comments feed.
Finally, many of the GNZ authors write content elsewhere on the web, on their own blogs or on other collaborative websites. If you are still hungry for GNZ content, you can follow these authors’ posts by keeping an eye on the “Authors Elsewhere” box on the sidebar, or subscribing to the Authors Elsewhere RSS feed.
Personal Genomics Resources
We’ve put together a small list of personal genomics resources; websites that we find useful while investigating personal genetics.
We need your help in expanding this page; please leave a comment if there are any websites that you find useful for information, software or discussion about personal genomics, and would like to share with others. We’re also interested in the flip side; what resources would you like to use, but haven’t been able to find, or don’t think exist?
The Website Itself
This website is running a reserved instance on Amazon EC2; this is currently somewhat overkill for what is so far a simple blog, but it gives us the ability to expand out into other directions in the future.
The website costs are being covered by a generous grant from the PHG Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation that provides information and consultation on the public health, legal, ethical and political issues surrounding genomic technology.
