Oh the horror
I just looked at Jim Watson’s genome I think. Thats not the scary part. What is shocking to me is how much work we have to do in order to make a user interface to human genomes that doesn’t make my head spin.
Sequencing is quickly becoming the easy the part. A freshly liberated ladder is of little help if I can’t figure out how to use it. We need more genomic cartographers.
The Genomic Cartographer:
1 part bioinformatician
1 part beautician
mix and serve
Update: This Genome Browser is looking promising.
