Following KT Pickard

Followed K. Thomas “KT” Pickard by KT Pickard (GenomeDad Blog)
Big data: From medical imaging to genomics In 2006, a Scientific American article written by George Church, “Genomics for All,” rekindled my interest in genomics. I went back to school in 2009 to contemplate the business of genomic medicine, and celebrated my MBA by writing a Wikipedia entry for the word, “Exome.” I was hooked. We started our odyssey by genotyping our family using 23andMe, and later my wife and I had our whole genomes sequenced. Realizing that genomics were starting to yield clinically useful information, we crowdsourced the sequencing of our kid’s genomes to look for genetic clues in their autism. We found interesting results, gave talks and wrote papers. Along the way, I realized that medical imaging and genomics are highly complementary: genomics informs or identifies conditions, and radiology localizes them. Sarah-Jane Dawson pointed this out at a Future of Genomic Medicine conference in 2014.

Someone who’s also into some of my favorite topics: genomics, medical imaging, and bread? And bonus points for the blog name https://genomedad.com/.

How could I not follow him?

The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg | National Review

Followed The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg by Jonah Goldberg (National Review)
National Review senior editor and AEI fellow Jonah Goldberg enlists a Cannonball Run-style cast of stars, has-beens, and never-weres to address the most pressing issues of the day and of all-time.

Following The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg podcast after hearing an interview of Jonah Goldberg on The Atlantic Interview. I’ll sample it for a bit to see if it’s as good as his interview with Jeffrey Goldberg indicated it might be.
