submitted by: OpenHelix

More information can be found here: http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=4602 . This week's tip in 2nd part in a 5 part series of tips following one variation in an individual's genome across several databases and resources to find out what information we gather about the clinical association of that variation. This wee we look at dbSNP, VarView and OMIM.

Large-scale Phosphorylation Analysis (Proteomics): Dr. Sean Beausoleil, Harvard

submitted by: dachian

Analyzing phosphopeptides using proteomics mass spectrometry is challenging, especially for large-scale data sets. The problem and solution is discussed by Dr. Sean Beausoleil (Harvard Medical School), who is the co-inventor of the ASCORE algorithm for phosphorylation site localization.

A New Biology for the 21st Century

submitted by: earthandlifescience
Following the release of a National Academies report on the future of biological science, three of the study’s authors discuss its key findings. A New Biology for the 21st Century identifies how biology can help meet challenges like feeding a growing population, providing adequate health care, generating energy to meet increasing demands, and coping with global climate change. In this video, Dr Phillip Sharp, Dr. Anthony Janetos, and Dr. Keith Yamamoto explain the study’s goals and...
