NAR's top ten articles

Recently, I noticed a new feature in the website of Nucleic Acids Research (NAR), i.e., its selection of top ten articles:
NAR’s Top Ten Articles are updated monthly and show recent articles that have been most often accessed in HTML and PDF formats in the specified month.
In the age of information explosion with flood of scientific journals and articles, it is easy get lost. NAR's pick of top ten and featured articles draws my attention to significant work I may otherwise overlook.

The current top ten articles (March 2011) are all selected from 2009/2010 publications in 'Database', 'Methods online', and 'Survey and Summary'. I am browsing the 2009 article by Thomas LaFramboise, "Single nucleotide polymorphism arrays: a decade of biological, computational and technological advances", to get a better understanding of SNPs.
