TCGA Pan-Cancer Analysis. Genomic alterations in diverse cell types at different sites in the body give rise to hundreds of different forms of cancer, and the ways in which these changes result in tumors with different biology, pathology and treatment strategies are beginning to be characterized.

TCGA Pan-Cancer Analysis

The TCGA Research Network has catalogued aberrations in the DNA, chromatin and RNA of the genomes of thousands of tumors relative to matched normal cellular genomes and has analyzed their epigenetic and protein consequences. Here the Pan-Cancer initiative examines the similarities and differences among the genomic and cellular alterations found in the first dozen tumor types to be profiled by TCGA. Cell.

Life Sciences & Mathematics & Physical Sciences

Many tools and algorithms relevant to next-generation sequencing applications have been published in Bioinformatics, and so to celebrate this contribution we have gathered these together in this 'Bioinformatics for Next Generation Sequencing' virtual issue. This will be a living resource that we will continually update to include the very latest papers in this area to help researchers keep abreast of the latest developments.

RHIPE: An Interface Between Hadoop and R for Large and Complex Data Analysis

Saptarshi Guha created an open-source interface between R and Hadoop called the R and Hadoop Integrated Processing Environment or RHIPE for short. LectureMaker was on the scene filming Saptarshi’s RHIPE presentation to the Bay Area’s useR Group, introduced by Michael E. Driscoll and hosted at Facebook’s Palo Alto office on March 9′th 2010. Special thanks to Jyotsna Paintal for helping me film the event. Saptarshi received his Ph.D from Purdue University in 2010, having been advised by Dr. Hadoop is an open source implementation of both the MapReduce programming model, and the underlying file system Google developed to support web scale data.The MapReduce programming model was designed by Google to enable a clean abstraction between large scale data analysis tasks and the underlying systems challenges involved in ensuring reliable large-scale computation.

The project is written in Java and mainly acts as a wrapper around existing bioinformatics applications. It allows researchers to search through the web service and obtain output through XML documents and to view intermediate steps throughout the request. TikZ and PGF resources.

Mathematics part 2 - Getting to grips with LaTeX

If you often include a lot of maths in your documents, then you will probably find that you wish to have slightly more control over presentation issues. Some of the topics covered make writing equations more complex - but who said typesetting mathematics was easy?! Adding text to equations I doubt it will be every day that you will need to include some text within an equation. There are two noticeable problems. There are a number of ways that text can be added properly. The text looks better. Formatted text Using the \mbox is fine and gets the basic result.

However, as is the case with LaTeX, there is more than one way to skin a cat! The maths formatting commands can be wrapped around the entire equation, and not just on the textual elements: they only format letters, numbers, and uppercase Greek, and the rest of the maths syntax is ignored.
