TIP OF THE WEEK

Knowledge sharing from industry professionals

Protein structure information for public outreach. Really.

This week's tip isn't about a specific tool--but a really interesting look at how a tool was used in the context of some general public outreach messaging. Recently I posted about Aquaria, a new tool available to let biologists explore protein structu... MORE

Designing proteins, using Rosetta

As often happens, last week's tip on visualizing structures led me to some more reading and thinking about creating protein structures. And although it's important for biologists to be able to use more of the information about protein structures and v... MORE

Aquaria, streamlined access to protein structures for biologists

This week's Video Tip of the Week is Aquaria, a new resource for exploring protein structures, mutations, and similarities to other proteins. It's a very well-designed and interactive experience for end users. It is aimed largely at biologists who cou... MORE

Friday SNPpets

This week's SNPpets include tidbits about the Exome Aggregation Consortium (ExAC), new RepeatMasker track at UCSC Genome Browser, sequencing undiagnosed patients, the African Genome Variation Project, Icelandic knockouts, and more.... Welcome to our Friday feature link collection: SNPpets. During the week we come across a lot of links and reads that we think are interesting, but don't make it to a blog post. Here they are for your enjoyment... RT @dgmacarthur: . @jcbarret's group explains why they love ExAC: http://t.co/Z5n47rb3OL Aw. We love you too, guys!RT @GenomeBrowser: Just released: New ... MORE

What's the Answer? (alignment editors)

This week's highlighted question is from the Bioinformatics discussion area at Reddit. There are a range of topics discussed in that subreddit, and some of the tool-specific ones are very helpful in learning about new software. What are some of the best multiple alignment editors that allow for manual editing? Cross-platform/open-source would be preferred. --AtlasAnimated There were tools I am familiar with (JalView is the one I have used the most), but I learned about a new tool that looked useful as well. AliView. It sounds as if they have provided a nice tool that manages large datasets bett... MORE

Friday SNPpets

This week's SNPpets include CaptureSeq, a wicked cool whiteboard for your computer (I just wish you could upload an image or a doc), finding human "knockouts", and my favorite new tool name of the week: GOTTCHA for metagenome analysis. Welcome to our Friday feature link collection: SNPpets. During the week we come across a lot of links and reads that we think are interesting, but don't make it to a blog post. Here they are for your enjoyment... RT @xosegb: CaptureSeq - peeking into our genome at a much higher resolution than ever before http://t.co/uVq5m4ZiUY @GarvanInstituteRT @kbradnam: Link ... MORE
