UC Publication Management System = OA upload-a-thons

Drop-in for assistance with the new publication management system and easy deposit of your articles into eScholarship.
This "harvesting" system is currently being implemented across the UC campuses in response to the Academic Senate's call for an efficient mechanism for facilitating faculty participation in the UC Open Access policy. While the initial focus has been on supporting the Open Access Policy, the system also has the ability to connect to new and existing campus systems like faculty profile pages, offering the potential for streamlining additional publication reporting and management processes in the future.

Visit one of the Upload-a-thons for assistance with this new system.

NCBI bioinformatics tools: An introduction

NCBI logo

A hands-on workshop introducing NCBI bioinformatics tools such as PubMed, Gene, Protein, Nucleotide, and BLAST:

  • Starting with a disease, syndrome, or process, identify the genes/proteins involved
  • Starting with an organism and a protein, find the protein sequence and gene coding region
  • Starting with a sequence, identify the gene/protein and source

The workshop will cover selecting the proper tools for your question, navigating through the interlinked NCBI databases, and saving your results.

Date: Tuesday, Nov. 3
12 - 1 pm
Bioscience Library Training Room, 2189 VLSB

Add this workshop to my bCal

Open to all interested students and researchers; no registration is required.

BIOBASE Proteome and HGMD workshops


Proteome/HGMD Workshops: Katherine Wendelsdorf, Ph.D., QIAGEN/BIOBASE Senior Scientist, will be presenting hands-on training workshops on Proteome and HGMD:

Date: Thursday, October 29, 2015
Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm (Proteome); 12:00 - 1:00 pm (HGMD)
Location: Bioscience Library Training Room, 2189 VLSB

The workshops are open to all interested researchers. If you are interested in attending, please let us know.

BIOBASE Proteome includes tools for gene set analysis and pathway visualization:

  • 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 inherited human gene mutations that:

  • are known to be associated with a particular gene or disease
  • disrupt a splice donor or acceptor site, or
  • result in a specific amino acid change.

NEW! Bioscience & Natural Resources Library website

Please visit our NEW website! It is one of many library homepages included in the UC Berkeley Library's move to update and improve our information pages.  As we migrated the content of the "classic" Bioscience & Natural Resources Library website to the new format, we were careful to make sure that all of the special resources on the 'classic' website were included.

New website: Bioscience & Natural Resources Library.
If you don't see links on the first page check the Bioscience & Natural Resources Library Subject Guides list, or contact us.

The Bioscience eJournal list has a new look but the same content.  Bioscience e-Journals List

Thank you!
