Daily Data Dump – October 18th, 2010 | Gene Expression

[Elitism in the Senate][1]. Harvard Law School:Tokyo University::Congress:Diet. Perusing [The Almanac of American Politics][2] makes it pretty clear that Harvard Law is way overrepresented.

[Barbara Billingsley Dies][3]. All icons shall pass.

[Common variants at TRAF3IP2 are associated with susceptibility to psoriatic arthritis and psoriasis][4]. Will this pan out in replication?

[Am I partly Jewish? Testing ancestry hypotheses with 23andMe data][5]. Jospeh Pickrell confirms that he is 1/4 Italian via genetics (he also confirmed he has blue eyes! Fascinating).

[Rand Paul To Jack Conway: ‘You Demean Kentucky’][6]. I still think Rand Paul [is going to win][7], but, if he loses it’s going to be open season on the religious views of American politicians in fine-grained detail and as far back as anyone can document. If you want “out” atheist politicians, at least temporarily before most get voted out, root for a Jack Conway victory.
