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.

A Brief Introduction to Genetics

submitted by: dmetzky
A Brief Introduction to Genetics is a short documentary film created using motion graphics as the main visual component. It is a film that explores the history of genetics & genomics and the underlying concepts that provide the foundational knowledge that today's research is built upon. The film describes the history of genetics, from Gregor Mendel, to concepts such as DNA and the genetic code. Having introduced the fundamental ideas of genetics, the film moves on to describe the current...

Gregor Mobius - visualDNA/transcription2

Visual method for representing five DNA and RNA bases U C A G T with five discrete values on the gray-scale: black (100%), dark (75%), gray(50%), light (25%) and white(0%) www.visualDNA.org This animation illustrates a proposal to replace the nucleic bases letter representation with five discrete values on the gray scale. Instead of letters UCAGT this concept employs five discrete values U=Black, C= Dark, A=Gray, G=light, and T= White. Value of "black" is defined as "absence of light",...
