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

TAIR access for UCB researchers


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.

UCB patrons can now access two BIOBASE databases:
PROTEOME and HGMD (Human Gene Mutation Database)

BIOBASE provides curated biological databases and software for life sciences which allow identification of relations critical to drug and biomarker discovery.  PROTEOME includes specialized tools for gene set analysis and pathyway visualization, search for an individual gene or a set of genes, diseaseses and drugs.
HGMD provides comprehensive data on human inherited disease mutations. It compiles structured curated data from peer reviewed literature.

The Bioscience and Natural Resources Library is hosting BIOBASE tranining sessions on Thursday, April 10, 2014 in the Library Training Room.  PROTEOME will be covered from 9:30 - 11:00am; HGMD training will start at 12:00 - 1:30pm.  No sign ups are necessary.
