TIP OF THE WEEK

Knowledge sharing from industry professionals

ProSplign in NCBI's Genome Workbench

There are many tools at NCBI, with a huge range of functions. Literature, sequence data, variations, protein structure, chemicals and bioassays, and more. It's hard to keep track of what's available. Their video tutorials are helping me to be aware o... MORE

JGI user meeting videos, and MetaSUB

This week's Video Tip of the Week is actually a whole bunch of videos. Although I'll highlight one here as our tip, there are many great talks from the recent JGI Genomics of Energy & Environment meeting. Although typically we focus on specific softwa... MORE

New UCSC Genome Browser Gateway look

For years now we've been doing training and outreach on the UCSC Genome Browser. And there's been a lot of change over the years--so much more data, so many new tools, new species. All that ENCODE information and a portal for that. But the look of th... MORE

Video Tip of the Week: ProSplign in NCBI's Genome Workbench

There are many tools at NCBI, with a huge range of functions. Literature, sequence data, variations, protein structure, chemicals and bioassays, and more. It's hard to keep track of what's available. Their video tutorials are helping me to be aware of new tools, and new features within existing tools. For this week's Tip of the Week, we'll look at their recent video for ProSplign. It's a tool that will help you align protein information to genomic sequences. Although the Genome Workbench itself has been around for a while (we featured it as a tip it first in 2013), it is constantly underdevelo... MORE

Friday SNPpets

This week's SNPpets consist of a lot more social and general public genomics tidbits than usual. I don't know why--I don't feel I was particularly looking for those over the week. There was a GINA-related ruling: a company fined for misuse of testing. Myriad was spanked for not giving patients' information back. On the good news side, there's educational opportunities for teachers on "personal genetics" too. As always, more software, more data. Some humor. Some head-shaking. Welcome to our Friday feature link collection: SNPpets. During the week we come across a lot of links and reads that we t... MORE

Video Tip of the Week: JGI user meeting videos, and MetaSUB

This week's Video Tip of the Week is actually a whole bunch of videos. Although I'll highlight one here as our tip, there are many great talks from the recent JGI Genomics of Energy & Environment meeting. Although typically we focus on specific software tools for our tips, I think this is a nice case of also looking at the type of research done with the tools. This is a nice example of how to make a meeting accessible for a lot of people as well, using multiple strategies. The video channel, a Storify, dropboxes of slides (below), and the agenda details can help you to decide what might be rele... MORE
