Some brief thoughts on @WalterIsaacson’s book on Steve Jobs. Great Biography of An Extreme Individual

Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs is a fantastic read, both engaging and revealing in many details. What emerges is a portrait of a genius — but also a quirky person with many contradictions. On one hand, the visionary who brought us the Mac, the iPhone, the iTunes Store and many other exceptional innovations but also the taskmaster who was incredibly demanding and difficult to interact with — someone who would get upset at the smallest details. Of particular interest to fans of Apple products: there are many tidbits on how particular features (and bugs) got included — from the oval on the MacIntosh dialogue boxes to the band circling the iPhone 4. There is also much revealing information on how the CEO of a huge public company concealed his cancer from so many people and about the intricate boardroom interplay deposing a leader and then his comeback. Altogether, a great read that I would recommend to anyone.

Comprehensive long-span paired-end-tag mapping reveals characteristic patterns of structural variations in epithelial cancer genomes – Genome Res.

Long-span PET mapping reveals characteristic patterns of #SVs in… cancer [v norm] genomes, but no MEIs or small events
http://genome.cshlp.org/content/early/2011/04/05/gr.113555.110.abstract

The described study used long paired-end-tags (PET) to analyze and compare SVs in cancer and normal genomes. It determined the prevalence of different types of SVs in normal and cancer sample. Overall, the results are interesting and convincing on a qualitative level; however, for the reasons outlined below, more precise and quantitative delineation of the observed effects is highly desirable.

1) Small sample size of normal genomes (only 2 normal genomes)

2) Validation rate was low (< 77%) for everything except deletions, and for singletons it was even lower. .

3) Long PET is not good for finding smaller events (few kbps). Thus, this analysis missed smaller scale SVs and cancer rearrangements.

4) While there is a discussion about breakpoints and associated repeats, it is not very informative as breakpoint locations were not determined to basepair resolution.

5) No MEI were considered — particularly, no cancer MEI were considered in the analysis, while recently it was found that somatic retrotransposition occurs in cancer (Lee et al., PMID: 22745252)..
