Gene Annotator Tutorial

submitted by: RGD.Videos

The Gene Annotator takes a list of gene symbols, RGD IDs, GenBank accession numbers, Ensembl identifiers, and/or a chromosomal region, and retrieves annotation data from RGD. This tool will retrieve annotations from any or all ontologies used at RGD for genes and their orthologs, as well as links to additional information at other databases.

Approaches to Evaluating and Improving Lithium-Ion Battery Safety

submitted by: RASEIBoulder
As lithium-ion battery technologies mature, the size and energy of these systems continues to increase for emerging applications in transportation, grid storage, military use and aerospace. In fact, broadening the application space for lithium-ion batteries from the consumer electronics industries to these emerging markets increases their size from 1-50 Wh batteries for smart phones and laptops to >50 kWh for electric vehicles (EVs) and MWh scale for utility storage systems. As these...
