When it Comes to the Rat Genome, Bigger is Better

submitted by: dabraham
The rat genome comes to life through the use of the Gviewer tool. This video will show you how to use this helpful tool within the RGD website at http://rgd.mcw.edu/ . Genes, QTLs, and species syntenies of interest can all be visualized with ease as the Gviewer zooms in and navigates through the rat genome with a few clicks. See our website at http://rgd.mcw.edu/ for more tools for rat researchers.

A new shape for an old function: lasting effect of a physiologic surgical restoration of the left ventricle

submitted by: makyr
Background Long-term morphofunctional outcome may vary widely in surgical anterior left ventricular wall restoration, suggesting variability in post-surgical remodeling similar to that observed following acute myocardial infarction. The aim of this pilot study was to demonstrate that surgical restoration obtained with a particular shape of endoventricular patch leads to steady morphofunctional ventricular improvement when geometry, volume and residual akinesia can be restored as...

ES4FUN 1.0 - Structures and functionalities

submitted by: es4fun
ES4FUN is a Physics-driven educational project with the aim of spreading universal scientific concepts in a game context, with research high-tech and audio+video clip support Multitudinary games were designed and implemented to spread the concepts "structures and functionalities" which are shared by all the scientific disciplines. The clip has been made with the graphic material recorded during the ES4FUN 1.0 event at the car parking of the Science and Technology Campus of the University...

It’s easy to get lost on the biological superhighway. Thankfully, we brought a map.

submitted by: dabraham
Biological annotations and terms have gotten a makeover with RGD’s interactive pathway diagrams. The Rat Genome Database makes biological pathways and their components easy to navigate and analyze through this newly added diagrams feature at http://rgd.mcw.edu/wg/pathway?100 . This video will show you how to easily access, view, and gather information from these diagrams and all the great tools they offer. See our RGD website at http://rgd.mcw.edu for more information and tools for...

Some prefer blue jeans...RGD prefers disease genes

submitted by: dabraham
Who knew you could find disease genes without even stepping into the laboratory? This video provides a tutorial on how to utilize the Disease Portals on the Rat Genome Database website at http://rgd.mcw.edu/wg/portals . These portals allow you to search for disease, phenotype, biological process, and pathway specific rat, mouse, and human genes and data. See our RGD website at http://rgd.mcw.edu for more information and tools for researchers...
