UC Davis features micropublications

microPublication.org publishes brief, novel findings, negative and/or reproduced results, and results which may lack a broader scientific narrative. Each article is peer reviewed and assigned a DOI. Included data is curated and, upon publication, deposited in third party referential databases (when available).

Recently UC Davis featured an article, ‘Small Science Snippets: Micropubs Help Share Discoveries‘ about how one of their researchers used a micropublication to publish their results.

SGD turns 25!

25 years ago the SGD (The Saccharomyces Genome Database) went online.  Happy Birthday SGD!

SGD provides comprehensive integrated biological information for the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae along with search and analysis tools to explore these data, enabling the discovery of functional relationships between sequence and gene products in fungi and higher organisms.

WormBase collaborates with SGD and several other model organism databases to facilitate data harmonization and cross-species searches at the Alliance of Genome Resources.  Check it out!

Integrated model organism data at the Alliance of Genome Resources

It is now possible to view integrated data from six different Model Organism Databases (MODs) and the Gene Ontology (GO) Consortium at the Alliance of Genome Resources (Alliance).  One can view gene descriptions, disease model data, orthology data, gene expression data and much more for the six major model organisms (yeast, worm, fly, zebrafish, mouse, rat) as well as human data on gene pages at the Alliance.   You can search by gene, disease or a GO term and be taken to a page where you will find integrated views of data relevant to all of the above mentioned organisms.   For example, searching by a human disease name at the Alliance will take you to a disease page where you can find data related to disease models from the six organisms. Similar integrated views are also available for orthology data for any given gene on a gene page.  The Alliance is a work in progress and will host even more data in the days to come. Check it out!
