An Introduction to Biomedical Nomenclature: Part IV, Strain Nomenclature

submitted by: RGD.Videos
Learn how to use biomedical nomenclature to name to strains that you or your research group develop or to find a strain that meets your research needs with this informative tutorial. Using effective nomenclature will help to disambiguate your data will help you to present it to your colleagues in a clear and meaningful way.

An Introduction to Biomedical Nomenclature: Part III, QTL and Marker Nomenclature

submitted by: RGD.Videos
Biomedical nomenclature is a valuable and ever-expanding tool that researchers can use in order to more easily learn about, refer to or retrieve any particular parts of the genome using the literature or through the use of curated data and a variety of tools, such as the ones available in RGD. This video showcases both QTL and marker nomenclature. For a copy of RGNC’s complete set of rules on nomenclature, visit: http://rgd.mcw.edu/nomen/nomen.shtml Or contact us at:...

An Introduction to Biomedical Nomenclature: Part II, Genetic Nomenclature

This video focuses on rat gene nomenclature, noting how it is formed and where you can go to seek help when naming your genes. Biomedical nomenclature is a valuable and ever-expanding tool that researchers can use in order to more reliably retrieve data on any particular part of the genome through analysis tools, such as the ones available in RGD. Learn more about this vital mechanism. For a copy of RGNC’s complete set of rules on nomenclature, visit:...

An Introduction to Biomedical Nomenclature: Part I, The History and Reasoning behind Biomedical Nomenclature

submitted by: RGD.Videos
The recent emphasis on standardization of nomenclature is not just a trend, but a necessary way to disambiguate the identification of biological objects such as genes, QTLs, markers, and strains. This video will give you some background on the history of standardized genetic nomenclature and the reason for why it’s important in order to strengthen your understanding of genetic nomenclature.

How Community Crowdsourcing and Social Networking is Helping to Build a Quality Online Resource for Chemists

submitted by: AntonyWilliams
With an intention to provide a free internet resource of chemistry related data for the community, ChemSpider provides an online database of chemical compounds, reaction syntheses and related data. Members of the community can contribute to the database via the deposition of chemical structures, synthesis procedures and analytical data. Data are also aggregated from many other depositors, at present over 400 data sources. The aggregation of data associated with over 25 million chemical...

Citizen Scientists and Their Contributions to Internet Based Chemistry

submitted by: AntonyWilliams
This presentation was a presentation to a group of chemistry students at Drexel University. The premise of this presentation was an overview of the ChemSpider search engine and database but during the process of teaching about ChemSpider an overview of various aspects of internet based chemistry were given. This included: the quality of chemistry-related data online, an overview of InChIs as a basis for searching the internet by chemical structure and semantic markup of chemistry articles.

An Overview of ChemSpider, A Structure Based Community for Chemists, and Chemmantis, a Markup System for Chemistry Documents

submitted by: AntonyWilliams

This is a presentation I gave at Drexel University regarding our development of the ChemSpider and ChemMantis platforms. ChemSpider is built with the intention of providing a structure centric community for chemists and ChemMantis is to mark up and integrate chemistry based documents to online resources.
