Chilling Effects Clearinghouse

Chilling Effects Clearinghouse
http://www.chillingeffects.org/

A joint project of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Harvard, Stanford, Berkeley, University of San Francisco, University of Maine, George Washington School of Law, and Santa Clara University School of Law clinics. Do you know your online rights? Have you received a letter asking you to remove information from a Web site or to stop engaging in an activity? Are you concerned about liability for information that someone else posted to your online forum? If so, this site is for you. Chilling Effects aims to help you understand the protections that the First Amendment and intellectual property laws give to your online activities. We are excited about the new opportunities the Internet offers individuals to express their views, parody politicians, celebrate their favorite movie stars, or criticize businesses. But we’ve noticed that not everyone feels the same way. Anecdotal evidence suggests that some individuals and corporations are using intellectual property and other laws to silence other online users. Chilling Effects encourages respect for intellectual property law, while frowning on its misuse to “chill” legitimate activity. The website offers background material and explanations of the law for people whose websites deal with topics such as Fan Fiction, Copyright, Domain Names and Trademarks, Anonymous Speech, and Defamation.

Human Genomics and Proteomics
http://www.sage-hindawi.com/journals/hgp/

Human Genomics and Proteomics is an international, peer-reviewed journal, providing a forum for discussion of research on human genomics and proteomics, systems biology, and various aspects of personalized medicine. The journal seeks high quality original research articles as well as review articles comprising research on human genomics and proteomics or innovative methodological and bioinformatics resource papers that enable the practice of personalized medicine. In particular, the journal will focus on:

* Pharmacogenetics, pharmacogenomics, nutrigenomics, and metabolomics
* Proteomics and pharmacoproteomics
* Systems biology
* Identification of the molecular genetic basis of inherited disorders and the available technology for their diagnosis and/or prognosis at the DNA level
* Bioinformatics and databases
* Molecular diagnostics-related issues

nanoHUB – Simulation, Education and Community for Nanotechnology
https://www.nanohub.org/

The nanoHUB is a rich, web-based resource for research, education and collaboration in nanotechnology. The nanoHUB hosts over 1400 resources which will help you learn about nanotechnology, including Online Presentations, Courses, Learning Modules, Podcasts, Animations, Teaching Materials, and more. Most importantly, the nanoHUB offers simulation tools which you can access from your web browser, so you can not only learn about but also simulate nanotechnology devices. The nanoHUB also provides collaboration environment via Workspaces, Online meetings and User groups. Resources come from over 550 contributors in the nanoscience community, and are used by thousands of users from over 170 countries around the world. Most of our users come from academic institutions and use nanoHUB as part of their research and educational activities. But we also have users from national labs and from industry. nanoHUB has now cited over 260 times in the scientific literature. About 60 percent of the citations stem from authors not affiliated with the NCN. Over 200 of the citations refer to nanotechnology research, with over 150 of them citing concrete resource usage. A list of tools ranked by citations is available. 20 citations elaborate on nanoHUB use in education and over 30 refer to nanoHUB as an example of a national cyberinfrastructure.
