The 25 Most Beautiful Public Libraries in the World

The 25 Most Beautiful Public Libraries in the World | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Public libraries are places where anyone can enter and partake of knowledge, where anyone can engage with history, literature and culture. And while we know it’s the books that are important, everyone likes to read in a beautiful space, so take a look at the most beautiful public libraries in the world here: http://www.flavorwire.com/280318/the-25-most-beautiful-public-libraries-in-the-world?all=1

Medical Education Matters: Lecturing for learning

It’s that time of year again! Lecture halls are filling with eager new learners and those a little less keen, having been there before. Lecturers blow the dust of their slides (symbolically, if not actually) and start a process of refreshing materials, in order to show that they are absolutely up to date, have read all the right journals and are ‘experts in their field’. Lectures are undoubtedly good for the lecturer’s learning, but what about the often passive recipients of their academic prowess, beautifully displayed on power-points up and down the country?
Are lectures good for learners’ learning? What is the nature of the relationship between ‘a good lecture’ and ‘good learning’?

Detailed Agenda Combine 2012 | COMBINE

COMBINE is a network formed by the communities developing standards and formats to share computational models. Working together, it is expected that the federated projects will develop a set of interoperable and non-overlapping standards covering all the aspects of computational modeling. Building on the experience of mature projects, which already have stable specifications, software support, user-base and community governance, COMBINE will help foster or support fledging efforts aimed at filling gaps or new needs.

Data Pub | Data to Receive Recognition from NSF

Data Pub | Data to Receive Recognition from NSF | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

Researchers, take heed: gone are the days when you can leave your data on zip drives in your filing cabinet (*cough* data from my undergrad project *cough*). The NSF is incentivizing data sharing by recognizing its importance as a research output; hopefully institutions and funders will follow suit. How can you get ready? Make your data public, create a citation with a unique, persistent identifier, and start watching the credit for your work roll in.

PathProt Home | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

What is PathProt?

PathProt is the international forum for Pathway Analysis in Proteomics. We are an informal discussion group that meets annually to brainstorm, since 2008. Our annual workshop is an ideal setting for open-minded, unbiased opinion-making. We pick on themes, listen to invited and submitted talks, discuss freely and summarize the results. The attendees are simply interested parties, wishing to get informed and participate in the discussions. There is always a healthy variety of academic backgrounds and industrial ties.
The format of Pathprot meetings has also been evolved. We have stabilised around the "un-workhop" model, in which we dedicate significantly bigger amounts of time to discussion,and less to talks. This time we will dedicate specific time to literature analysis, journal clubs, etc.
And, of course, a great deal of local experiences, to make it fully enjoyable, in the portuguese way.

 

Experiece the Un-Workshop approach to debate!

HTS mappers

HTS mappers | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

This page attempts to provide an up-to-date compendium of HTS mappers initially provided in the review article "Tools for mapping high-throughput sequencing data", submitted.

If you are a developer and your mapper is not listed or you want to update the data for your mapper then please let us know by filling this form. We will be happy to add them to the list. Any suggestions are welcome.

Mappers Timeline

Mappers time line (since 2001). DNA mappers are plotted in blue, RNA mappers in red, miRNA mappers in green, and bisulfite mappers in purple. Gray dotted lines connect related mappers (extensions or new major versions). The time line only includes mappers with peer-reviewed publications and the date corresponds to the earliest date of publication.

FP7 Calls > Cooperation - Research Participant Portal

FP7 Calls > Cooperation - Research Participant Portal | Bioinformatics Training | Scoop.it

The European Commission has published its 'FET-Open Xtrack' Call for Proposals as a  part of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). By means of a lighter submission process, faster evaluation and simpler project implementation (Xtrack), this call aims to support the field of Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) through the exploration of new and alternative ideas that, because of their risky or non-conventional nature, would not be supported elsewhere in the ICT Work Programme. This Call seeks foundational breakthroughs as crucial steps towards radically new forms and uses of information and information technologies as well as novelty that comes from new, high-risk ideas rather than from the refinement of current ICT approaches. New inter-disciplinary collaborations, possibly with prominent and internationally-recognized non-EU research teams where these can provide a significant added value are also encouraged.

3D-printing is awesome, but it has its limits. For the time being, we mostly get static plastic figures, and while resolution is getting better all the time, we're far from a real replicator future.
