Accessing the Metatranscriptome for Complex Marine Microbial Communities

submitted by: dougramsey
Sequencing the expressed genetic information of an ecosystem (metatranscriptome) can provide information about the response of organisms to varying environ mental conditions. Until recently, metatranscriptomics has been limited to microarray technology and random cloning methodologies. The application of high-throughput sequencing technology is now enabling access to both known and previously unknown transcripts in natural com munities. We present a study of a complex marine meta...

The Rapidly Growing Standards Landscape in ‘omics by Susanna Sansone, European Bioinformatics Institute

submitted by: dougramsey
As the size and complexity of scientific datasets and the corresponding information stores grow, reporting standards are playing an increasingly active role. Interopera bility among standards, however, becomes pivotal for the development of software applications. Here we present the key synergistic standards activities in the omics domain and the motivation for, an overview of, the BioInvestigation Index infrastructure at the EBI. The marriage of conventional methods with (meta)genomics,...
