TCGA | 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.
English Communication for Scientists | Learn Science at Scitable This unit will help you select and organize a paper's content, draft it more effectively, and revise it efficiently. Among others, it offers advice on using verbs optimally, provides general rules for text mechanics (abbreviations, capitalization, hyphens, and so on), and points out frequent shortcomings for speakers of specific language groups. Structuring Your Scientific Paper Scientific papers are often structured chronologically, thus reflecting the progression of the research project. Still, effective papers typically break the chronology in several ways to present their content in the order in which the audience will most likely want to read it.

Ron Fredericks writes: Dr. 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. RHIPE: An Interface Between Hadoop and R for Large and Complex Data Analysis | LectureMaker, LLC
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.

Mathematics part 2 - Getting to grips with LaTeX - Andrew Roberts 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?!
