The OpenHelix blog provides a genomics resources news portal with regular postings about genomics resources, genomics news and research, science and more. Our goal is to keep the researchers informed about the overwhelming amount of genomics data out there and how to access it through tools, databases and resources that are publicly available.

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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Rosenbloom K.R., G. P. Barber, J. Casper, H. Clawson, M. Diekhans, T. R. Dreszer, P. A. Fujita, L. Guruvadoo, M. Haeussler & R. A. Harte & (2014). The UCSC Genome Browser database: 2015 update, Nucleic Acids Research, 43 (D1) D670-D681. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1093/nar/gku1177
This week’s SNPpets include mining disease genes with PPI and co-regulation networks, DNA and the law, great posts on germline genetic engineering moratorium discussions, a bioinformatics “middle class”, new human genome assembly models, and more…. Welcome to our Friday feature link collection: SNPpets. During the week we come across a lot of links and reads […]
The previous What’s the Answer? post that we did on something at Reddit Bioinformatics was popular. It led people to some software they weren’t familiar with for editing multiple sequence alignments. So this week we’ll try another post from this subreddit that might be informative for folks interested in phylogenetic tree tools. Suggestion for phylogenetic […]
