The Cancer Genome Atlas Clinical Explorer

Accessing TCGA cancer data has been approached in a variety of ways. This week's tip of the week highlights a web-based portal for improved access to the data in different ways. The Stanford Cancer Genome Atlas Clinical Explorer is aimed at helping id... MORE

SGD's Variant Viewer

Variant viewers are very popular. As we get more and more sequence data, the challenge of looking across many samples only gets more and more important. So I always like to see how different groups are doing this. I'm still waiting for the killer app ... MORE

Complex Portal with Super Curators

From the same team that brings us the IntAct database for protein interaction data, the Complex Portal offers insights for additional levels of protein interactions that are organized around a biological function. Although there are various resources ... MORE

Tip of the Week: The Cancer Genome Atlas Clinical Explorer

Accessing TCGA cancer data has been approached in a variety of ways. This week's tip of the week highlights a web-based portal for improved access to the data in different ways. The Stanford Cancer Genome Atlas Clinical Explorer is aimed at helping identify clinically relevant genes in the cancer data sets. They note that the data is available in other places and tools, from tools we've talked about before such as cBioPortal, UCSC Cancer Genomics Browser, and interacting with the StratomeX features. But this portal helps peoplt to quickly focus on clinical parameters in ways that aren't as stra... MORE

Friday SNPpets

This week's SNPpets explore the past and the future. There's the effect of climate on human population movements. And a correction to another ancestry paper. We have retro bioinformatics hardware. The creator of the ribbon protein diagrams appears. Top stories from last year, and from this year (so far). And Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Anne Wojcicki on a "future without disease" (oh, please--but that was the headline writer's fault, the interview isn't that pollyanna-ish). There's also the future of genetic discrimination and GINA. And future disease outbreak tools. Have a look. Welcome to our Frid... MORE

Video Tip of the Week: SGD's Variant Viewer

Variant viewers are very popular. As we get more and more sequence data, the challenge of looking across many samples only gets more and more important. So I always like to see how different groups are doing this. I'm still waiting for the killer app on this--the pan-genome graphs with all the paths along different genomes/regions displayed. But there are many good examples out there now for seeing variations in different species, strains, or different individuals. This week's Video Tip of the Week looks at the yeast variation viewer from SGD. It shares some features with other visualization to... MORE
