BIOBASE Proteome and HGMD training workshops


Alexander Kaplun from BIOBASE will be presenting hands-on training workshops on Proteome and HGMD:

Date: Tuesday, November 4, 2014
Time: 1:00 - 2:45  pm (Proteome); 3:00 - 4:00 pm (HGMD)
Location: Bioscience Library Training Room, 2189 VLSB

The workshops are open to all interested researchers, and no pre-registration is necessary.

BIOBASE Proteome includes tools for gene set analysis and pathway visualization, allowing scientists to quickly find answers to questions relevant to their research and to analyze high throughput data. Workshop participants will learn to:

  • search for individual gene, disease, and drug reports by name
  • browse for sets of genes, diseases, and drugs which share a desired set of characteristics
  • upload a list of genes and identify those characteristics which are statistically over-represented
  • export annotated characteristics for a gene list
  • build and visualize protein-protein networks, overlaid with disease and drug assignments
  • annotate custom sequences

BIOBASE HGMD provides data on human inherited disease mutations, enabling quick access to both single mutation queries and advanced search applications.

Data Management Planning Tool version 2 released


A new version of the free Data Management Planning Tool (DMPTool2) has been released by the California Digital Library (CDL) and its partners. DMPTool2 guides researchers through the process of creating data management plans to fulfill the requirements of funding agencies such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The new version of the tool allows researchers to more easily:

  • collaborate and share with colleagues
  • get help and suggestions relating to the particular requirements of each funder
  • see additional data management resources that are specific to their institution.

For questions about the DMPTool2 or about other data management tools and services available to UC Berkeley researchers, please see our page on Scientific Data Services or contact
