So many "goodies" to be found in NGS Publications!


New editions of publications are always exciting!  What new tidbit, strategy or resource might I learn about?  What old familiar research friend might I be reminded of?

If you are like me, you might sometimes file notices about these away for “when you have time.”  And, if you are like me, it’s amazing how that “time” just doesn’t seem to happen!

I was reminded about the NGS publications, the other day, when I got a heads up that new editions of the NGS Magazine and NGSQ will become available and I realized that I hadn’t read nor publicized the current and most recent editions!  Yikes!
