DIRECT2Experts – Distributed Interoperable Biomedical Research Experts Collaboration Tool

May 02, 2017

DIRECT2Experts – Distributed Interoperable Biomedical Research Experts Collaboration Tool
http://direct2experts.org/

The DIRECT2Experts network, open to all biomedical institutions, is a pilot project facilitated by the Research Networking Working Group of the NIH-supported Clinical & Translational Science Award (CTSA) Consortium. Their goal is to improve biomedical research and leverage our strengths as a community by creating a network that enables easy access to expertise and related resources across institutions regardless of local platforms and tools, and in collaboration with participating institutions to ensure access to approved and verified data. What makes DIRECT2Experts different? a) Rather than searching public databases or asking individual researchers to “sign-up”, DIRECT2Experts works directly with institutions to connect to their existing research networking tools.; b) DIRECT2Experts works across different software products and respects local privacy policies, enabling many institutions to participate; and c) The focus of DIRECT2Experts is to bring more institutions and investigators into the fold, allowing for an assessment of the value provided and challenges of searching a national network. This will be added to Internet Experts Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Biological Informatics Subject Tracer™. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.

EdX: The Extremes of Life: Microbes and their Diversity

April 18, 2017

EdX: The Extremes of Life: Microbes and their Diversity
https://www.edx.org/course/extremes-life-microbes-diversity-kyotoux-003x-0

Kyoto University offers this open EdX course dedicated to microorganisms and their role in our world. More specifically, this course investigates microbes that are able to survive in extreme nvironments and temperatures. As the course introduction explains, “Microorganisms are everywhere, and although some are notorious for their roles in human disease, many play important roles in sustaining our global environment.” In this course, anyone can learn more about microbes via video lectures, course readings, and assignments. These materials are divided into four units: Evolution and  the Diversity of Life; Life in Boiling Water; Diversity of Extremophiles; and Genome Sequences. Intended for anyone with a middle-school level knowledge of science, this course is self-paced but designed to be completed in about four weeks. Auditing The Extremes of Life is free; students also have the the option to earn a certificate if they pay a course fee. This will be added to Biological Informatics Subject Tracer™.

Updated> Biological Informatics 2017 Subject Tracer White Paper Link Dataset Compilation
http://www.BiologicalInformatics.info/

I have just updated my Subject Tracer™ Information Blog white paper link dataset compilation titled Biological Informatics 2017 which is now a 36 page paper listing selected resources both new and existing that will help anyone who is attempting to find the latest information about biological informatics that are available over the Internet. It is freely available as a .pdf file (303KB) at the above link from the Virtual Private Library™ and authored by Marcus P. Zillman, M.S., A.M.H.A. It was completely updated including link validation and new links added on March 29, 2017. Other white papers are available by clicking here.

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.
