Big Changes for the DMPTool, but first, a little downtime.

During the month of May, project developers for the DMPTool and DMPOnline (the UK's version) began combining documentation to create the DMPRoadmap. Coming next year, the DMPTool and DMPOnline will merge into one Data Management Plan service that can be used internationally and that combines the best features of the current DMPTool and DMPOnline. You can follow their progress via their GitHub Repository: DMPRoadmap.

Stay tuned for updates. In the meantime, the DMPTool will experience brief downtime for mini-maintenance on Wednesday, June 8 2016 from 4:00 - 4:30 (PST).

New bioscience journals

The Life and Health Sciences Division of the UC Berkeley Library has recently purchased access to the following subscription resources:

  • Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Medicine and its associated Subject Collections offer review articles on the molecular and cellular bases of disease, translational medicine, and emerging therapeutic strategies. With the addition of CSH Perspectives in Medicine, UC Berkeley researchers now have access to all of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press journals.
  • Current Protocols in Stem Cell Biology provides protocols for the isolation, characterization, and differentiation of embryonic and adult stem cells.
  • Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE): Developmental Biology offers video articles on research methodologies in the field of developmental biology in vitro and in vivo at the molecular, cellular, tissue, organ and whole organism levels.
  • Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews (WIREs):

    • WIREs Developmental Biology is published in association with the Society for Developmental Biology and covers topics in cell and molecular biology, stem cell biology, plant biology, evolutionary biology, anatomy, physiology, and neuroscience.
    • WIREs RNA offers review articles on topics related to RNA, including structure and dynamics, evolution and genomics, interactions with proteins and other molecules, translation, processing, disease and development, and methods.
    • WIREs Systems Biology and Medicine covers topics in medicine, biology, physiology, computational biology and modeling, and bioengineering.

Open Genomic Data Repositories & Analysis Resources workshop

This workshop will introduce you to the rich ecosystem of genomic data repositories and analysis tools available for discovery and utilization of open genomic data.  We will focus on a handful of bioinformatics tools that are accessible to researchers without programming expertise. We will also review current publisher and funder data sharing policies to understand "open data" as it relates to genomic research.

We will spend the last 45 minutes of the workshop on a hands-on gene expression reanalysis use case that shows you how to:

  • Search the Gene Expression Omnibus for datasets of interest
  • Use GEO2R to analyze gene expression data and generate a list of differentially expressed genes
  • Use pathway and network tools to interpret that gene list in a biological context

Date: Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Time: 12 - 1:30 pm; this is a hands-on workshop, so please bring your own laptop

Location: D-Lab Conference Room, 371 Barrows Hall

Please register:

(Space is limited, and registered and waitlisted attendees will have priority.)

Presenter: Dr. Megan Laurance is the Research Informationist at the UCSF Library where she uses her expertise in genomic data analysis and knowledge management to help researchers get up to speed on various bioinformatics methods, databases and software, and integrate those tools into their own data analysis and interpretation workflows.  Prior to becoming the Research Informationist at UCSF in 2013, Dr. Laurance spent 12 years at a genomic software and database company, and spent 10 years at the bench as a researcher studying various topics including transplantation biology, transcription, and cancer.
