Ruby, mongodb, genome... Cool.

Probably not what Mr. Yegge had in mind, but still inspiring all the same: analysing how many SNPs are in common between different populations using ruby and mongodb.

SNP (snip) stands for single-nucleotide polymorphism it is a variation of a single base pair amongst individuals of a species. SNPs can occur in coding and non-coding sequences, or between genes in the genome and can be used to identity genotypes.

(Pity MS isn’t a genetic condition)

On another note:
