TIP OF THE WEEK

Knowledge sharing from industry professionals

Human Metabolome Database, HMDB

The HMDB, or Human Metabolome DataBase, is another nice data collection and tools from the Wishart lab. Although we have mentioned it in the past, because of it's emphasis more on small molecules it isn't something we covered in detail. But with this ... MORE

gene.iobio for genome and variation browsing

Twitter erupted recently with some chatter about a new tool that people seemed to really like. The iobio team from the Marth lab had launched a new gene "app" on their iobio framework. Here was some of the response: https://twitter.com/JulieCKiefer/st... MORE

World Tour of Genomics Resources, part II

This week's tip is not our usual short video. We'll connect you to our newest tutorial suite, our World Tour of Genomics Resources, part II. Our previous tour was really popular--because as much as bench researchers know about the tools they currently... MORE

Friday SNPpets

This weeks SNPpets include some useful images for teaching or presentations, Cabbages of Doom's popular post on bioinformatics being like bench science, pathway visualization, deep learning for predicting variant effects, DNA tools for saving wildlife and (separately) for eliminating pathogens, and more. How Ashley Madision's hacked data is like gene lists. Formats, formats, formats. Also some Docker chatter. 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 a... MORE

What's the Answer? (expression across tissues)

This week's highlighted question is one that I like to look in on from time-to-time, to see how people are solving the issue of looking at tissue expression. In this case none of the tools were new to me, but I do like to see what people prefer. And I like to spur some discussion if other folks have tools that aren't already described, or newer ones that I jut might not have come across yet. So have a look at this question and thread. If you have other suggestions, chime in. Expression levels across tissues? (self.bioinformatics)submitted 3 days ago by WunterslashDoes anyone know the best datab... MORE

Video Tip of the Week: Human Metabolome Database, HMDB

The HMDB, or Human Metabolome DataBase, is another nice data collection and tools from the Wishart lab. Although we have mentioned it in the past, because of it's emphasis more on small molecules it isn't something we covered in detail. But with this new video that's available, I thought it was a good time to include it in our database resources for folks who might be seeking out this kind of metabolomics data. Their overview video that will be our tip of the week notes that currently their resource contains over 40,000 metabolites. They introduce the types of information contained within, incl... MORE
