There's a new blog in town, and its name is Genomes Unzipped. Billing itself as a "collaborative blog about personal genomics," it is the brainchild of several well-known bloggers and researchers, including Daniel MacArthur from Genetic Future, Genomic Law Report's Dan Vorhaus, and the PHG Foundation's Caroline Wright, among others. "Our goal is to provide independent and informed analysis of developments in the field of genetics, with a particular focus on implications for the budding industry of personal genomics," the authors write. Recent posts on the blog include Luke Jostins' take on the importance in sequencing in personal genomics, a post by MacArthur on how much DNA from modern humans may contain Neandertal DNA, and a post by Wright on the risks and benefits of population screening.
