This world tour of genomic resources will discuss the number and breadth of publicly available bioscience resources available to researchers. It will include a tour of example resources, organized by categories such as Algorithms and Analysis tools, expression resources, genome browsers (both Eukaryotic and Prokaryotic/Microbial) , Literature and text mining resources, and resources focused on nucleotides, proteins, pathways, disease and variation. This main discussion will then lead into a discussion of how to find resources with the OpenHelix search interface, learning to use resources with OpenHelix tutorials, and a discussion of additional methods of learning about resources.

You will learn:

  • about several bioscience resources in various subject categories
  • to find the right resource using the OpenHelix search interface
  • how to quickly learn to use resources through OpenHelix tutorials, site documentation, mailing lists, etc.
  • about additional resources for discovering resources to meet your research needs

CATEGORIES

Algorithms and Analysis : This category contains various tools that may help perform analysis of different genomics data types. This may include sequence alignment, large-scale or complex queries, motif finding, or comparative assessments.

Expression : This category may contain various expression data collections, annotation tools, or repositories of expression data.

Genome Databases (euk) : Genomic databases or repositories primarily aimed at eukaryotic organisms. Some may contain prokaryotic data as well.

Genome Databases (prok + viral) : Genomic databases or repositories primarily aimed at prokaryotic or viral organisms. Some may contain eukaryotic data as well.

Literature and Text Mining : Tools which are related to scientific literature. Repositories, query tools, and mining resources are included.

Miscellaneous : Broad overview training suites, or those not categorized by other existing collections, may be located here.

Nucleotides : Tools that are primarily used in the storage, retrieval, or exploration of nucleotide-based data. Some tools may also involve protein sequence information.

Pathways and Interactions : Tools that are involved with protein interactions and pathway features. Some tools are primarily repositories and some offer analysis options.

Proteins : Tools that are primarily used in the storage, retrieval, or exploration of amino acid based data. Some tools may also involve nucleotide sequence information.

Variation & Medical : Resources that include information about sequence variation, phenotypes, or medically-relevant conditions.
