and the hits on the 100K Genomes Project just keep coming
The e-mails overfloweth. Congratulations all around, and gleeful lists of web hits are being updated. There are almost 50 articles out there after the press releases went out yesterday, although some of them are re-prints posted to a different site. The report posted to Genome Web News is the 2nd most viewed and the 3rd most e-mailed. But the best result is that offers of isolates and other help are now flowing into UCD. After the first 1500 isolates are sequenced and polished, it really will be like looking at pathogen genomes with the Hubble instead of binoculars, as the Director of the FDA suggested.
