2/. “The tax system is a haven of scams, perks, City deals and profits" (#TonyBlair 1994)

The #PandoraPapers reveal the Blair’s bought an offshore firm that owned the £6.5m house they were buying so did not have to pay £312,000 in stamp duty @BBCPanorama bbc.com/news/uk-587805…
3/. The #PandoraPapers expose offshore accounts of world leaders, billionaires, oligarchs & criminals

It should lead to a crackdown on tax loopholes & money laundering...but we’ve been here before

What was the impact of #PanamaPapers & #ParadisePapers?

(1) Possible buyout of #ARM by #NVIDIA does have an effect on the #Bioinformatics field: many applications now are deployable on CPU/GPUs with #ARM and/or #NVIDIA chips on them. Some recent examples are:
(a) the Oxford @nanopore MinION Mk1c device, which originally was specced at Jetson TX2 ARM+Pascal GPU accelerators (ARM processor 6 cores, 256 Core GPU), 8 GB RAM (may have changed since then.

1/ What is Fully Homomorphic Encryption (#FHE), and what does it mean for #privacy? A thread
2/ Back in the 1990s, when we accessed websites via HTTP, nothing was encrypted. Anyone could intercept your data just by listening to traffic coming in and out of your computer.
3/ Today, 90% of websites use HTTPS (the padlock in your address bar), where data is encrypted while being transmitted, meaning nobody can intercept it. Only the user and the website they accessed had the data.

Check out our latest preprint: the relevance of pedigrees in the conservation genomics era bit.ly/3wCO7DH. TLDR: it’s not either/or when it comes to #pedigrees & #genomics. Having both helps researchers address more conservation questions than one data set alone. 🧵 1/10
Conservation #genetics 🧬 has developed a substantive toolbox 🔧 to inform species management. While much discussion has been dedicated towards genomic advances, there remains one long-standing tool in #ConGen that is often overlooked: the pedigree. 2/10
Pedigrees have been used to understand and manage diversity in threatened populations for decades. But, caveats like assumed founder relatedness, missing data, and errors can make them tricky to use. See Forsdick et al (ecoevorxiv.org/7bnjw/) for more. 3/10

The recent outbreaks of #Zika Virus in #Kerala has renewed interest in this virus. This tweetorial explains some key aspects about the virus and why we should be actively using #genomics for #GeneticEpidemiology Image
The disease in most people is mild. Majority of people infected with Zika virus DO NOT develop symptoms. Symptoms are generally mild including fever, rash, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain, malaise, and headache, and usually last for 2–7 days.
Source: @CDCgov Image
Death is RARE
Infection during pregnancy can cause microcephaly & congential malformations.
Neurological complications like Guillain-Barré syndrome, neuropathy and myelitis are seen in some.

1/. I am at #CogX2021 for @MattHancock’s first public appearance - Live Tweeting from the front row

Oh dear! He’s just started & has lost his voice lost his voice

Short pause...
#MattHancock #COVID19 #coronavirus #Genomics #GenomeUK
2/. Matt’s back!

@MattHancock has regained his voice & is continuing his keynote address at #CogX2021

A friend just DMed:

“Maybe he lost his voice when he you in the front row & realised you’re going to ask him about the links btw #Palantir #FacultyAI & #CambridgeAnalytica!”
3/. #MattHancock says that he thinks that GP’s having exclusive control of patient data is “undemocratic”

Instead he says he wants every citizen to control their own data(!?)

He says people are enthusiastic about sharing their health data as long as privacy is assured #CogX2021

So brilliant that #GEM2021 registration was made free this year! Awesome talks during Session 1 already! Wendy O'Meara discussed identification of #malaria reservoirs in Kenya! Check out the work in nature.com/articles/s4146… #Plasmodium
Xue Li also gave an excellent talk on spatial analysis of parasite population genomics during #malaria elimination efforts on Myanmar, citing samples collected during this incredible study: thelancet.com/journals/lance… #GEM2021 #Plasmodium
One more of the Session 1 #GEM2021 talks was by Eline Kattenberg (@ElineKattenberg), detailing the multiplexed Ampliseq targetted NGS assays that can be used for molecular surveillance of Pf or Pv isolates! The P. vivax preprint can be found at biorxiv.org/content/10.110… #malaria

There are a bunch of Twitter accounts, real or fake to some extend, doing the rounds every time someone tweets about #NGS #genomics or #LiquidBiopsy. They seem clearly wanting to hype a certain listed company
in a pump-and-dump fashion, which is not new, and existed before the GameStop/Robin Hood saga. I chose to mute the accounts, so my threads are not polluted from these accounts. I may start blocking them if it gets worse.
I am not muting the ticker for the company itself, as I am genuinely interested in following their developments, and they are not responsible for the behaviour of the pump-and-dump accounts.

Is @NebulaGenomics using @MGI_BGI for their 30x 2x150bp #WGS genome sequencing? Image
I received an email from @NebulaGenomics today, with a discount code for a $299 genome sequencing offer. Which made me wonder: are they using the already cheaper @MGI_BGI #DNBSEQTx sequencing for this? It would mean they can run it at cost or make a small profit from it.
Then you realise there is "analysis" charge on top of the $299 which you can't untick, so the $299 #WGS 30x genome goes up to $499. Still, at $499, you would find it difficult to make money if you were @NebulaGenomics and you were using something like an @illumina #NovaSeq

This topic needs more understanding of Genomics-Gotra applicable to Humans, except liberals.
start looking at the genomes and similarities.
The size of the bovine genome is 3GB (3 billion base pairs).

It contains approximately 22,000 genes of which 14,000 are common to all mammalian species. Bovines share 80% of their genes with humans.
Cows are less similar to humans than rodents. we share 85% DNA with a mouse. Maybe why we have temple for rats also.

Cows also have about 1,000 genes that they share with dogs and rodents but not identified in humans.

1. Economy- Cathy sees explosive ER for 2021 bc lower inflationary risks & higher commodity prices - in 2019 $140 eps for S & P; 2021 should be $200 eps- make up for lost time (confirms V shaped recovery)
#arkk #investing Here's the link for the webinar: please listen carefully ASAP. It's chalk full of great info: ark-invest.com/webinars/janua…
2. Cathy- valuations may go down as interest rates go up but eventually the market will understand higher interest rates mean the market is starting to work again

A short story about #bioinformatics, #genomics, bacterial reference #standards and the challenges and complexity of doing reproducible science. (Names changed to protect the innocent! ☺)

🧬🧬👍👍

A thread...
1/ Dr. Amy discovers a cool new bacteria and does whole genome sequencing on it and publishes the results. "This is the first time this genome has been sequenced, and will pave the way for groundbreaking research in the future!"
2/ 9 months later, while the manuscript is still under review, Dr. Amy deposits the strain into the ATCC collection for safe keeping. ATCC gives her a strain ID and she uses that in the publication the following year.

JPM Healthcare Daily Roundup #JPM2021

The first day of the conference hasn't disappointed, especially if you're a fan of talking cubes. What is this mysterious object and what sorcery is inside?

See disclosures at the end.
The Tempus One, meant to be carried in a doctor's coat or sat at the bedside, is a physical manifestation of @TempusLabs' genomic and phenotypic data-lake. Oncologists can ask One all sorts of questions regarding their patients, though I'm unsure if it'll (...)
(...) just reflex you to a computer after a sufficiently difficult question. I'm sure we'll learn more soon. Has this sort of form-factor been tried before?

I'm just hoping it has adjustable humor/honesty settings like TARS from Interstellar.

Moving right along.

$ARKG Tweet series
This series of tweets is my opinion only. Cathie Wood has created a group of ETFs that target the disruptive innovation that is both happening and accelerating. These funds have had stellar performance based upon innovation trends and economic theory.
1/ Image
The $ARKG fund description is a good place to start. This has changed recently to a #CRISPR theme but started more with the sequencing cost declines which would drive diagnostics adoption and precision medicine
2/ Image
The economic driver of the Genomic Revolution is a multiplier. Not only sequencing cost declines but the impact of moving from #ZFN to #TALENs to #CRISPR is key. As the editing cost has dropped CRISPR is seeing a dominant increase in publications.
3/ Image
