Genes
http://www.mdpi.com/journal/genes

Genes, a publication of the Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), is an open-access journal dedicated to issues in genetics and genomics. Genes publishes a diverse array of articles, reviews, and case studies on a regular basis and interested readers can check out all published articles via this website. In one recent article, a group of scholars from the College of Computer and Information Science in Saudi Arabia consider computational intelligence programs and non-coding RNA. In another article, a team from the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry in Germany investigate the possible role of DNA methylation, “an epigenetic mark with important roles in transcription and the mediation of environmental influences” in the development of schizophrenia. In another recently published study, a transnational team of researchers examine nicotine dependence. Each article features links to related articles for those interested in further research.

Nature Nanotechnology

September 15, 2016

Nature Nanotechnology
http://www.nature.com/nnano/index.html

Since 2005, Nature Nanotechnology, part of the Nature consortium, has published articles about all aspects of nanoscience, including nanomedicine, nanobiotechnology, and environmental issues. Visitors can read current articles or search through the journal’s complete archives. In addition, readers will find sections on Letters, Reviews, Perspectives, and In the Classroom. In one recent Perspectives piece, two scientists argue that scientists should develop a more systems-based approach to studying nanoparts, examining how these parts interact to form a “nanomachine.” Meanwhile, a recent In the Classroom feature entitled, “A Tale of Two Disciplines,” highlights the perspective of “physician-scientists” Wen Jiang, who describes how he has benefitted from pursuing both nanobiology and medical school.

About Bioscience
http://www.aboutbioscience.org/

Teachers and students of biology and other biosciences will find first-rate resources on this well-endowed and attractive site. Readers may like to start with the Bioscience Topics tab, where they will find sections dedicated to Animal Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Biodiversity, Bioethics, and a host of other related topics. Each subheading contains an explanatory article, links to resources around the web, and information about sub disciplines. For instance, the Cell Biology page features links to a Virtual Library of Biochemistry & Molecular Cell Biology, among others. Also of interest, the About Bioscience page boasts an entire tab dedicated to Bioscience careers, including job descriptions, salary ranges, educational requirements, and links to more specified sites. Of the many careers covered here, readers will find information about the working lives of Mammalogists, Genetic Counselors, Immunologists, and Entomologists.

DNA Barcoding 101

DNA Barcoding 101
http://www.dnabarcoding101.org/

With a budget of 150 million dollars a year and a history dating back to 1890, Cold Spring Harbor (CSH) Laboratory is one of the nation’s most respected private, non-profit research institutions. Now, the Lab has given the world an excellent educational website on the topic of DNA Barcoding, a method that allows experts and non-experts alike to objectively identify species based on their unique pattern of DNA sequence. On the site, readers may like to start by scouting the Introduction page, which outlines the methods and applications of DNA Barcoding. From there, educators may want to download “Using DNA Barcodes to Identify and Classify Living Things,”the PDF document that outlines the experimental methods used to document species. Here readers will learn how to gather samples, use a smartphone to take photographs, drop a pin for location, use a field guide to identify the specimen to the degree possible, and then label and analyze the DNA. All the necessary equipment is listed in the document. This will be added to Biological Informatics Subject Tracer™.

Bento Lab – Experience Genetics Everywhere

Bento Lab – Experience Genetics Everywhere
https://www.bento.bio/

Check out what their users are doing on their Stories page. Bento Lab allows you to copy DNA and do basic DNA analysis, for example to compare species or different versions of a gene like the PTC gene that relates to taste receptors. If you have never done DNA analysis before, get in touch as they are working on a Getting Started page. Bento Lab is geared towards both professional and science education. Their beta testers come from all different backgrounds. Their users are working with Bento Lab for everything from molecular fieldwork, to science outreach, to creating cool art. The CRISPR technique primarily relies on reagents (primers and plasmids) as well as equipment. The equipment required for CRISPR includes a thermocycler, which Bento Lab contains. You may also need an electroporator and an incubator. Over the years, we have benefitted immensely from the generosity and innovativeness of the Open Source, Open Science, DIYbio and Biocommons community. We stand on the shoulders of giants such as Hackteria, the fantastic OpenPCR project, the iGEM community, and many, many others. For them, accessibility is the priority. They want to document the project well, so they are giving themselves a runway. They are planning to release the firmware source code, the electronic specifications and CAD files of the functional device (more suitable for readily-available materials!) into the public domain by the end of 2016. This will be added to Biological Informatics Subject Tracer™.
