TIP OF THE WEEK
Knowledge sharing from industry professionals
We've been doing training on the UCSC Genome Browser for over 10 years now. We've seen it grow from just a few genomes and a few tracks to the enormous trove of information it is today. In fact, one of the toughest things about training is how to bala... MORE
The multiple sequence alignment editing question recently on our What's the Answer? feature was popular. We have covered MSA editors in the past, and we include a bit on Jalview in our Clustal tutorial, but I hadn't revisited them lately. In preparati... MORE
Generally we like to highlight new features and new tools from bioinformatics software providers. But this week we wanted to introduce some new features of our own OpenHelix site. If you've been using the site for a while, you will have noticed that r... MORE

THE OPENHELIX BLOG
A genomics resources news portal
This week's SNPpets include free passes for Phil Bourne's keynote talk in Boston next week, software for analysis of the effects of protein variants, interpreting your own genome, a book review of a tome on bioinformatics that's getting very good chatter among the practitioners, free image analysis tools for microscopy, and more.... Welcome to our Friday feature link collection: SNPpets. During the week we come across a lot of links and reads that we think are interesting, but don't make it to a blog post. Here they are for your enjoyment... Bostonians--take note, next Tuesday: via @CHI_Healtht... MORE
This week's question comes up on a pretty regular basis, but I always like to see what people are using for exploring the networks of their genes of interest. This was a new species, though, and I was curious to see if there was something particularly relevant to this plant. Biostars is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions and issues. We are members of the community and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at Biostars that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those items or ... MORE
We've been doing training on the UCSC Genome Browser for over 10 years now. We've seen it grow from just a few genomes and a few tracks to the enormous trove of information it is today. In fact, one of the toughest things about training is how to balance all the new information and features with the foundational things one needs to really grok the framework and the functionality. In the training materials that we have today, we touch briefly on the amino acid display in the reference genome track. And one of our very first Tip-of-the-Week blog posts was about how to visualize the 3-frame transl... MORE
