Access to The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR) after it becomes a subscription resource on April 1, 2014, will be paid on behalf of all UC Berkeley researchers by the Marian Koshland Bioscience and Natural Resources Library.
As its name implies, TAIR maintains a regularly updated database on Arabidopsis thaliana, a model organism for plant evolution, development and genetics. Data available from TAIR includes the complete genome sequence of A. thaliana, along with gene structure, gene product information, gene expression, DNA and seed stocks, genome maps, genetic and physical markers, and publications. TAIR also includes data analysis tools, as well as information for and about the Arabidopsis research community.
|The Henry Stewart Talks include over 1500 online lectures and seminars many by UC Berkeley Faculty; covering biochemistry, cancer, cell biology, drug discovery, genetics, immunology, microbiology and more.
UC Berkeley can access the - Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection.
How To Cite a Talk: (sample)
Web of Knowledge databases including Web of Science, BIOSIS Previews, CAB Abstracts and Global Health, Data Citation Index, Inspec, and Zoological Record deployed a new user interface beginning January 12, 2014. Among the changes:
Video tutorials on specific features of the new interface can be viewed here: http://wokinfo.com/training_support/training/web-of-science/
Live online trainings occur monthly. This month they begin Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 11 am PST. The trainings are free, but advance registration is required: http://wokinfo.com/training_support/training/
Quick Reference Cards and factsheets for many Web of Knowledge resources can be downloaded here: http://wokinfo.com/training_support/guidesfactsheets/
You can always contact a UC Berkeley librarian with your questions: http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/Help/research_help.html
Now Available from the Library: Scopus! *Training scheduled*
Representatives from SCOPUS will be here today - in the Bioscience and Natural Resources Library Training Room on February 27, 2014. 10-11am, for all staff; 11-12am for all researchers. Please attend either drop-in session.

California Digital Library has purchased a one-year trial to Scopus, a large abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and more, with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.
Come try it out! No registration required. Use the training room PCs or bring your own laptop.
Scopus contains over 50 million records in all disciplines, with more than half the content originating from outside North America.
Use the Journal Analyzer tool to compare journals on a variety of parameters:
Scopus also integrates with Embase: Records in Embase with citing articles will have a link to open Scopus so one can view the citing articles. Also, Scopus is considered an essential database to search when conducting systematic reviews
UC-wide access to Scopus ends on December 31, 2014; at that time each campus will decide whether or not to subscribe.
