I’m nearly a week late with this news, but the 18 October issue of Nature has a great news feature about the amazing story of Hugh Rienhoff, his daughter and her DNA.

To my knowledge, this is the first SciFoo talk to reach the cover of Nature. I mentioned it briefly in a previous post, but it’s well worth reading the professional journalistic coverage. It’s in the Nature Podcast too (about half-way through, but don’t miss lots of other genomics-related material in the same show). Also check out Hugh’s website,, where he’s trying to help others in similar situations.

I find this story simultaneously fascinating, heartrending and inspiring.
