OpenHelix announced a new blog (www.openhelix.com/blog) exclusively focused
on genomics and bioinformatics resources. The blog will be an instrumental,
interactive forum for researchers to learn more about the rapidly changing
and growing genomics databases and resources.
The blog, authored by OpenHelix scientists with extensive experience with
genomics and biology and industry expertise in databases and resources, will
have daily postings about genomics resources, genomics news and research,
and training tips on how to effectively find and use bioinformatics
In addition to daily posts on relevant topics, the OpenHelix Blog on
Genomics and Bioinformatics will include:
"Tip of the Week": A short video outlining a tip on how to use a database
to find something you need, some feature that you might not have noticed
before, or introducing a new resource.
"What's Your Problem?": An "open office hours" open thread post every
Thursday where you can ask questions about what database might have the data
you need, how to find specific types of information from a resource, and
more. With nearly immediate answers to your questions, you'll have a
virtual help desk on genomics and bioinformatics resources.
"Guest Post": A periodic guest post from a scientist on an issue or topic
that they feel is important to the community. Our guest posters will be
people directly involved in developing and maintaining resources or genomics
"Free Tutorials": You'll find links to extensive tutorial suites on a number
of genomics and bioinformatics resources. The suites include 40-60 minute
narrated self-run tutorials, slide sets, hand-outs and exercises.
