For more information, few the blog post at: . This tip is the continuation of a genome variation tour. We will look at finding SNPs in LD with our SNP of interest using GVS

Tip of the Week: PSI Structural Genomics Knowledgebase

submitted by: OpenHelix
For more information about this resource see our blog post at URL on the OpenHelix blog. The PSI Structural Genomics Knowledgebase is a great resource for protein information, including structural information, especially if you are not a structural biologist. In this short movie I will search for a specific Protein Data Bank (PDB) ID & show you the information you can obtain and how it is formatted.

Tip of the Week: WAVe

submitted by: OpenHelix

A quick introduction to WAVe (Web Analysis of the Variome), a great tool that pulls in a wealth of information about human gene variation. For a more high-resolution version of this tip and more information about the resource, visit the OpenHelix blog.

Introduction to the RGD Phenotypes and Models Portal

submitted by: jennifer.r.smith

Despite what our name might imply, the Rat Genome Database contains much more than just genomic and genetic data for the rat. This video will give you an overview of the RGD Phenotypes and Models portal—a rich resource of information on topics including animal husbandry, identifying what rat strains are good models for certain human diseases, and normal physiological measurements for a variety of rat strains.

Introduction to Biomedical Ontologies 3: Anatomy of an Ontology Annotation, part 2

submitted by: jennifer.r.smith
Are you missing the added value that you could be getting from ontology annotations? You know what ontologies are—maybe you've even used them on occasion. But if the only part of an ontology annotation that you take into account is the term itself, you could be skipping over valuable information that the other components of annotations supply. This video will give you insight into what that "valuable information" is and how to interpret what you see when you examine ontology annotations.
