Posts - Research Blogging A recently published report from the Cochrane Colloboration suggested that two drugs which are used in the treatment of human Influenza are not as effective as reported in clinical studies, so it is worth to pause a moment and recapitulate how these drugs work and take a closer look at the report before rushing to any judgment. ...

PLoS Biology : Publishing science, accelerating research A Peer-Reviewed, Open Access Journal Current Issue PLOS Biology is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal featuring research articles of exceptional significance in all areas of biological science, from molecules to ecosystems. Research / Software Manipulation of input and output files related to whole-genome shotgun assembly. Currently maintained at CBCB at the University of Maryland. CABOG assembles long sequences of genomic DNA given the fragmentary data produced by whole-genome shotgun sequencing. DNA Barcode Deconvolution This is a software library to run the JCVI barcode deconvolution pipeline using Sun Grid Engine, or optionally without the use of a grid. Elvira
Social Media for Scientists Part 2: You Do Have Time. If you look at the comments on my last post, it seems like everyone agrees that scientists should be more active online. But when I gave my talk last week, I was hardly met with open arms by the scientists themselves. The grad students were mostly on board, but the tenured faculty were more hesitant. They asked questions like Is there any real evidence that social media makes a difference? Scientists observe single gene activity in living cells in detail for first time Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have for the first time observed the activity of a single gene in living cells. In an unprecedented study, published in the April 22 online edition of Science, Einstein scientists were able to follow, in real time, the process of gene transcription, which occurs when a gene converts its DNA information into molecules of messenger RNA (mRNA) that go on to make the protein coded by the gene. Robert Singer, Ph.D., co-director of the Gruss Lipper Biophotonics Center at Einstein and professor and co-chair of anatomy and structural biology, is senior author of the paper. The study's lead author is Daniel Larson, Ph.D., previously a member of Dr.
Gene Ontology Tools The information on this page is out of date. The Gene Ontology tools registry is now handled in association with NEUROLEX at this site. Please update your bookmarks. The GO tools collection contains tools developed by the GO Consortium and by third parties. We are currently updating our tools listings to provide users with more information. The evolution of social network practices in science Paris metro on a weeknight and numerous heads are tilted towards a book or a Smartphone that holds their attention. Of those engaged with the latter, many are using a social network, or are busy tweeting. The emergence of social networks dates back to approximately 2004, but only since 2008 has their rapid growth reached the general public.
DAVID: Gene Functional Classification What does this tool do? Quickly translate given gene IDs to corresponding gene names in a batch way Provide links for each genes to DAVID Gene Report for in-depth information Search functionally related genes within user's input gene list or genome Key Concepts of "Search Related Genes" Any given gene is associating with a set of annotation terms. If genes share similar set of those terms (annotation profile), they are most likely involved in similar biological mechanisms.

How Water Shapes DNA Water molecules surround the genetic material DNA in a very specific way. Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have discovered that, on the one hand, the texture of this hydration shell depends on the water content and, on the other hand, actually influences the structure of the genetic substance itself. These findings are not only important in understanding the biological function of DNA; they could also be used for the construction of new DNA-based materials. The DNA's double helix never occurs in isolation; instead, its entire surface is always covered by water molecules which attach themselves with the help of hydrogen bonds.
DailyMed DailyMed provides high quality information about marketed drugs. Drug labeling on this Web site is the most recent submitted to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and currently in use; it may include, for example, strengthened warnings undergoing FDA review or minor editorial changes. These labels have been reformatted to make them easier to read. Social Networks for Scientists New social networks and media are improving the connectivity of researchers, engineers, PhD candidates, post-docs, and students. Today, several offer solutions to problems faced by researchers, but are still often considered time consuming. As an online extension of the work of your team or as a catalyst for new collaborations, each of these networks has its own special features. Do you need to optimize your literature review, share or obtain information, dialogue with an instructor, or even reinforce your network of contacts?
