Gene Wiki -- Editing demo

submitted by: asu

This video describes the Gene Wiki, an informal collection of gene articles in the online encyclopedia Wikipedia. The goal of the Gene Wiki is to apply the concept of community intelligence to gene annotation. This video will provide a practical guide for biologists who want to edit their favorite gene in the Gene Wiki. Note that elsewhere on the Scivee website is a pubcast which describes the analyses and methods in this paper in PLoS Biology in more detail.

Dendrites of rod bipolar cells sprout in normal aging retina

submitted by: Liets
The aging nervous system is known to manifest a variety of degenerative and regressive events. Here we report the unexpected growth of dendrites in the retinas of normal old mice. The dendrites of many rod bipolar cells in aging mice were observed to extend well beyond their normal strata within the outer plexiform layer to innervate the outer nuclear layer where they appeared to form contacts with the spherules of rod photoreceptors. Such dendritic sprouting increased with age and was...

Finding polymorphic Rat SNPs using RGD's SNPlotyper tool

submitted by: simont

This screencast shows how to identify polymorphic SNPs between different rat strains using RGD's SNPlotyper tool and the STAR consortium SNP genotype dataset. SNPlotyper is available at the Rat Genome Database (http://rgd.mcw.edu) and contains SNP genotype data produced by the european STAR consortium (http://www.snp-star.eu/)
