Ethanomics a great blogger who really seems to know about ChIP-seq

I was pointed to Ethan Ford's blog by a colleague and thought I'd recommend you take a look. Ethan is a post-doc in Ryal Lister's lab at The University of Western Australia.

The post that got me interested was one about homemade AMPure beads. The protocol was not written by Ethan, but modified by Brant Faircloth & Travis Glenn (from the methods section in: Cost-effective, high-throughput DNA sequencing libraries for multiplexed target capture) for a SeqCap workshop, referencing.

Nadin Rohland from Harvard Medical School, who was the lead author on the above paper, was also one of the researchers that discovered Africa has two species of elephant not one. And if anyone is interested in a genetics/philosophy story for kids this one about African elephants is great, it raises all sorts of questions for young kids (and adults) about prejudice, discrimination, and violence. The genetics is not so clear.

Ethans blog has some great resources for ChIP-seq afficionado's on his protocols page:
