- The Liz Lerman Dance Exchange Ferocious Beauty: Genome is running at the Premiere Dance Theatre in Toronto, Canada from September 27-29. From National Post:
As she pondered the implications of the unraveling of the human genome, Lerman realized what a different future her daughter would be facing, a future potentially fraught with issues and difficult choices she herself had never had to confront.

- The drug companies listened to me after all.* The International Serious Adverse Events Consortium, made-up of seven pharmaceutical companies and academic institutions, has launched two studies to examine genetic markers which indicate a person’s risk of drug-related side effects. Members of the Consortium will combine their data, including DNA, to study serious adverse events (SAEs). Information from the SNP Consortium and Hap Map Project will also be utilized. (Press release)
- Next month, Australian physicians will be handed a copy of Genetics in Family Medicine: The Australian Handbook for General Practitioners produced by the Genetics Education in Medicine Consortium. The handbook will also be available online at http://www.gpgenetics.edu.au (site still under construction at the time of writing).
- The San Diego Union Tribune interviews Dr. James Watson. FYI, don’t ask to photograph Dr. Watson. He doesn’t like it!
- Point-of-care DNA testing is coming closer to reality. NEC has developed DNA testing equipment the size of a briefcase that they say can analyze crime scene DNA in 25 minutes. NEC claims that it’s the world’s first portable all-in-one DNA analysis system that goes from extraction to analysis. Earlier this week, scientists in Singapore unveiled a prototype chip that can do something similar; the handheld device can detect viral DNA from throat swabs. (HT: Gizmodo)
*I’m just joking. I don’t believe for a second anybody listens to me. Not even my five-year-old.
