Network Enabled Research: Not just better or faster but fundamentally different

submitted by: ucsd_idash
ABSTRACT The web, like all network technologies before it from the mobile phone to writing itself, has the potential to enable a qualitative change in our capacity as people, organizations and societies. We are starting to see the first glimmerings of how our research capacity might change with projects like Galaxy Zoo and Polymath but these remain isolated examples. What will it take to exploit the network capacity that the web brings us to enable a step change in the efficiency and...

submitted by: OpenHelix

For more information about this resource see our blog post at URL http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=6208. Here I'll introduce you to FLink, or Frequency weighted Links, NCBI's tool for linking items from one of their databases to a weighted list of associated items in another of their databases.

Tip of the Week: CircuitsDB for TF/miRNA/gene Regulation Networks

submitted by: OpenHelix

For more information about this tip and resource see our blog post at http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=5360. In this tip we introduce CircuitsDB, a database of MicroRNA / Transcription Factor Regulatory Circuits in Human and Mouse. We demonstrate a basic search and then explore the information provided in the result reports.
