Video Tip of the Week: The PSI SBKB's New Content Hubs

submitted by: OpenHelix
For more information about this resource, see our blog post at URL: http://blog.openhelix.com/?p=12634 In the tip I will feature the newly organized content hubs over at the Protein Structure Initiative's Structural Biology Knowledgebase, or PSI SBKB. These scientific hubs, organized by content, make it easy for users to access specific content offered by both the SBKB and the PSI as a whole.

An Introduction to Biomedical Nomenclature: Part III, QTL and Marker Nomenclature

submitted by: RGD.Videos
Biomedical nomenclature is a valuable and ever-expanding tool that researchers can use in order to more easily learn about, refer to or retrieve any particular parts of the genome using the literature or through the use of curated data and a variety of tools, such as the ones available in RGD. This video showcases both QTL and marker nomenclature. For a copy of RGNC’s complete set of rules on nomenclature, visit: http://rgd.mcw.edu/nomen/nomen.shtml Or contact us at:...

An Introduction to Biomedical Nomenclature: Part II, Genetic Nomenclature

submitted by: RGD.Videos
This video focuses on rat gene nomenclature, noting how it is formed and where you can go to seek help when naming your genes. Biomedical nomenclature is a valuable and ever-expanding tool that researchers can use in order to more reliably retrieve data on any particular part of the genome through analysis tools, such as the ones available in RGD. Learn more about this vital mechanism. For a copy of RGNC’s complete set of rules on nomenclature, visit:...

T cell signaling goes with the flow

submitted by: JCB
Activated T cell receptors stimulate actin polymerization at the periphery of the immunological synapses that form between lymphocytes and antigen-presenting cells. Babich et al. reveal that the retrograde flow of actin, largely driven by continuous polymerization, is required to sustain downstream signaling events and T cell activation. This biosights episode presents the paper by Babich et al. from the June 11, 2012 issue of The Journal of Cell Biology and includes an interview with senior...

How to grow Yeast

submitted by: Singer Instruments

How to grow / culture yeast on agar or in YPD:

We show you how to prepare fresh cultures of yeast from previously grown agar plates.

Spruce up your old yeast cultures by replating onto fresh media or liquid YPD, or select colonies of interest to be expanded.
