Towards a Standards Compliant Literature: The GSC eJournal

submitted by: dougramsey
George Garrity, Michigan State University Standards in Genomic Sciences (SIGS) is a new Open Access publication that is being created in cooperation with the Genomic Standards Consortium (GSC). It is in tended to fill an unmet need for rapid publication of standards compliant reports on genomes and metagenomes, standard operating procedures relevant to large-scale sequencing initiatives, and various forms of technical reports, policy statements, meeting reports and other con tent that is...

New Sequencing Technologies at JGI and Applications in Bioenergy Research

submitted by: dougramsey
The US DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) is a high throughput sequencing and genomic research center involved in a myriad of sequencing projects. JGI’s major effort is the sequencing of genomes and transcriptomes of plants, microbes and environmental metagenomic samples of relevance to the DOE missions of carbon sequestration, bioremediation and energy production. Roche/454’s platform utilizes emulsion PCR for template amplification and pyrosequencing technology on high well-density...

What Genomes Can Tell Us About the Past by Sydney Brenner - Part 1: (39:06)

submitted by: video_collector
By looking at the light from distant galaxies and having well-established calibration methods, astrophysics can make hypotheses about the history of our universe. Do we have similar "rulers" in biology that could allow us to reconstruct the remote past and the evolution of species on this planet? The answer is likely "yes" and the clues are undoubtedly contained in the many whole genome sequences that are now available for inspection. However, it is critical to evaluate the assumptions that...

A Pseudo-Boolean Programming Approach for Computing the Breakpoint Distance Between Two Genomes with Duplicate Genes

submitted by: dougramsey

Annelyse Thevenin argues that the best approach to calculating breakpoint distance between two genomes with duplicate genes is by using Pseudo-Boolean Programming.
