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.
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.

Biomarkers and Personalized Medicine. Life Sciences & Mathematics & Physical Sciences. Next-generation sequencing technologies are revolutionising genomics and their effects are becoming increasingly widespread.
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.

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. Computational Biology Center. We pursue basic and exploratory research at the interface of information technology and biology.
Information technology plays a vital role in enabling new science and discovery in biology. Advances in high throughput and platform technologies in biology present an unprecedented challenge in scale, management, and analysis of biological data. Advances in computing architecture and scale are enabling simulations of complex biological processes at various organizational levels from atomic to cellular and beyond. Web services for bioinformatics, Part 1. Web services for life sciences The IBM alphaWorks article on web services for life sciences is an example set of web services that offers standard bioinformatics applications and demonstrates the technology (See Resources).
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. Bioinformatics research applications exist in various stages of completeness in many different languages. Furthermore, building a workflow from several different applications requires installing applications locally, copying input and output data by hand, and often modifying source code for adapting changes in output and input data format. TikZ and PGF resources. A growing collection of links to various TikZ and PGF resources.
Various packages that extends or are built on top of TikZ and PGF. Beamer A LaTeX class for creating presentations. Written by the same author as PGF/TikZ. Bodegraph. Mathematics part 2 - Getting to grips with LaTeX. By Andrew Roberts This tutorial builds on the basic foundations presented in the previous tutorial.
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?! Bioinformatics Organization - Bioinformatics.Org. Bioinformatics Projects List. November 10: Provide an outline of your work, as well as a preliminary list of references; Develop your presentation skills.
