Including Naptimes Between Sessions? Sounds Great

A blogger wonders how scientific meetings can be made more family-friendly. After bringing her 18-month-old daughter to a pedagogy workshop she attended this past week, ScienceWoman feels like a "troublemaker." While there were plenty of other moms at the workshop, she was the only one who brought her daughter and felt guilty and apologetic, even to the other moms, the whole time. "Why do *I* feel like the bad mommy for dragging her along *and* the bad professional for having her here?" she asks in her blog.

The Scan

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.

TB Resistance Insights Gleaned From Genome Sequence, Antimicrobial Response Assays

Researchers in PLOS Biology explore M. tuberculosis resistance with a combination of sequencing and assays looking at the minimum inhibitory concentrations of 13 drugs.

Mendelian Disease Genes Prioritized Using Tissue-Specific Expression Clues

Mendelian gene candidates could be flagged for further functional analyses based on tissue-specific transcriptome and proteome profiles, a new Journal of Human Genetics paper says.

Single-Cell Sequencing Points to Embryo Mosaicism

Mosaicism may affect preimplantation genetic tests for aneuploidy, a single-cell sequencing-based analysis of almost three dozen embryos in PLOS Genetics finds.
