First Post

This blog is going to be about new ways to get insights into biological data using informatics, in particular, bioinformatics. While I am largely a bioinformatician (-icist?) I do collaborate with biologists so I also intend to write about new technologies, and new ways to generate data. Next generation sequencing, or high throughput sequencing and tools to understand epigenetics like ChIP-chip and ChIP-seq are something that I am currently working with. Part of this is about trying to make sense of all the new software that is being published, every month tens, if not hundreds, of new papers describing a software are published in Bioinformatics, Nucleic Acids Research and so on but its hard to say how good they are or how they compare with other tools for similar applications. I would like to review how they turn out in my usage.
