Gene Genie blog carnival: New look, new concept

I’ve been organizing Gene Genie, a blog carnival about human genes and personalized medicine for 2 years, but it seems it gets harder and harder to organize such blog events. So I came up with the microcarnival idea which means we all can submit our favourite human genetics-related articles and posts and share those in real-time.

I created a Gene Genie Friendfeed room for this purpose. Please subscribe and let’s discover personalized genetics together.

Gene Genie #44 at Mary Meets Dolly

The  44th edition is up at Mary Meets Dolly. A great compilation of articles and blogposts about human genetics and personalized medicine. Thank you, Rebecca Taylor, for hosting Gene Genie.

Gene Genie is the blog carnival of genes and gene-related diseases. Our plan is to cover the whole genome before 2082 (it means 14-15 genes every two weeks). We accept articles on the news of genomics and clinical genetics. The news and articles of personalized genetics are also included. Check out Gene Genie for more about this unique field of medicine.

Scienceroll.com: Weekly Introduction

I would like to share my favourite and ongoing projects with you so I can give you a proper introduction to Scienceroll.com.

Medicine 2.0 University Course: This is the second semester of the first university course that focuses on web 2.0 and medicine for medical students. Last semester, almost 50 students attended the 20 slideshows through 10 weeks and they filled a survey out before and after the course. I launched the second semester for English-speaking students (February – May, 2009). I’m open to launch the same course in Second Life.

Medicine20 Course 4 by you.

Medicine 2.0 Collection: I maintain the biggest collection of links and posts focusing on web 2.0 and medicine.

Webicina.com is my service that aims to help medical professionals and patients enter the web 2.0 era by providing them with e-courses, consulting and personalized packages.

PeRSSonalized Medicine is a free tool that lets you select your favourite resources and read the latest news and articles in one personalized place.

Gene Screen: Will We Vote Against a Candidate’s DNA? (Wall Street Journal):

“DNA is not an issue in this campaign, but in the next campaign it will be bigger,” says George Annas, a leading authority on bioethics and human rights at Boston University. “It’s coming.”
