Today's tip of the week is on Chromohub, an annotated phylogeny of chromatin mediated signaling genes. For more information, check out our blog post at http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=12671

Video tip of the week: Variation Data from Ensembl

submitted by: OpenHelix

For more information about this resource see our blog post at URL http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=10091. In today's tip I am going redo a movie originally done by Ensembl on SNP information in Ensembl, but I will use the updated Ensembl release 64.

Single molecule analyses of DNA in environmental microbes

submitted by: dougramsey
Comprehensive characterization of genomic composition in environmental microbial samples has been challenging, because the majority of microorganisms are difficult to culture. Additional challenges include a high degree of genetic diversity between and within species, various level of relative abundance and ubiquitous presence of cell-free DNA. Single cells or single molecules genomic assays hold great promise for tackling these challenges. Recent progresses in the developments of these...

Genomic and Genetic Insight into Gut Microbiota Function and Manipulation

submitted by: dougramsey
Trillions of microbes live in our digestive tract and influence our biology in profound and diverse ways. Several diseases, including obesity and inflammatory bowel diseases, have been associated with large-scale shifts in microbiota composition. The ability to address basic questions concerning community function and plasticity are fundamental to understanding the extent of causal relationships between host biology and microbiota perturbations, and whether the microbiota is a viable...
