Visualizing gene trait networks for faster discovery – Feedstuffs

Posted: at 3:43 am

It is now possible for non-bioinformaticians to create knowledge networks a powerful way for biologists to visualize deep connections between genes and phenotypes quickly and efficiently, thanks to the integration of Rothamsted Researchs open-source KnetMiner software into the Genestack platform. These new software tools make it easier for plant breeders and others to mine genomics data to find novel ways to improve the performance of all kinds of crops. Genotype to phenotype analysis is at the core of what biologists do. With KnetMiner, we have created software that enables biologists to take their own high-throughput experimental data and to see them in the context of all the public knowledge that is out there. This can help them interpret their own data faster and more effectively," Dr. Keywan Hassani-Pak, head of bioinformatics at Rothamsted Research and leader of the KnetMiner project, explained. For a particular target species, such as a crop plant, KnetMiner integrates all the relevant genomics and 'omics' information that is present in more than 25 sources under a multitude of formats. KnetMiner brings it together in the form of a heterogeneous knowledge network. We dont only integrate the data; we also create new relationships based, for example, on … Continue reading

bioinformatics – NIH Common Fund

Posted: September 6, 2017 at 6:45 pm

TheBioinformatics and Computational Biologyprogram, which supports the National Centers for Biomedical Computing, aims to develop novel, cutting-edge software and data management tools to effectively mine the vast wealth of biomedical data generated from sophisticated modern laboratory techniques and facilitate data sharing between researchers. Please note that since the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology program is no longer supported by the Common Fund, the program website is being maintained as an archive and will not be updated on a regular basis. Biology has always been a haven for microscopes, test tubes, and Petri dishes, but this conventional picture of the field is expanding rapidly. Sophisticated techniques adapted from physics, chemistry, and engineering enable scientists to use computers and robots to separate molecules in solution, read genetic information, reveal the three-dimensional shapes of natural molecules like proteins, and take pictures of the brain in action. All of these techniques generate large amounts of data, and biology is changing fast into a science of information management. Today's biomedical researcher routinely generates an amount of data that would fill multiple compact discs, each containing billions of bytes of data. (A byte is approximately the amount of information contained in an individual letter of type on … Continue reading

Photo by Andrew Himmelberg Photo by Andrew Himmelberg Serdar Bozdag, assistant professor in the department of MSCS, discussing the new program. Bioinformatics, acombination of biology and data analysis, is now available as a major to Marquette undergraduate students. The university launched the new bioinformatics program this fall, jointly-housed by the department of Biological Sciences and the department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science. Bioinformatics was born from the massive amount of biological data that need to be analyzed, saidProfessor Edward Blumenthal, chair of the department of Biological Sciences. Biologists are not trained in how to deal with these data sets. We can generate them, we can collect the data, but we are not trained in the statistics and the computer science in order to analyze them and get the meaning, Blumenthal said. Then youve got computer scientists who are trained at how to analyze these data sets, but they dont necessarily know the biology. Bioinformatics was introduced to produce people who are proficient in both the fields of biology and data analysis,Blumenthal said. Despite the separation of the departments that deal with bioinformatics, the program emerged … Continue reading

Infrastructural dearth bane of bioinformatics underuse – The Nation Newspaper

Posted: August 19, 2017 at 3:41 am

Nigeria has consistently under-explored the inherent potentials of bioinformatics due to dearth of infrastructure in the Information Communication Technology, Prof Samuel Oranusi has said. The don, a keynote speaker at a training on bioinformatics organised by the Federal Institute of Industrial Research Oshodi (FIIRO) in collaboration with Inqaba Biotec West Africa Limited, said the country was lagging behind in the adoption of the field of research for pragmatic solutions owing to erratic power supply, inadequate investment in inquiry and poor internet facility occasioned by inadequate broadband penetration. The interdisciplinary field of science bothers on the development of methods and software tools, applying knowledge of computer science, statistics, mathematics and engineering to analyse and interpret biological data. Oranusi also underscored the fact that the discipline suffered lack of an independent framework with a thoroughly designed curriculum for its research purpose. He noted that while many universities treat it as a component of their coursework, there were few substantial projects to proof the study. Apart from the job creation potential abound in its aspects of software development and real life applications, he said, the benefits including molecular medicine, personalised medicine, waste management initiatives, climate change management and preventive medicine could be derived … Continue reading

From mill town to research campus a different path right back home – Independent Tribune

Posted: August 6, 2017 at 11:45 pm

Kannapolis has gone through a lot of change in the three decades since Kevin Lambirth was born in the bustling mill town. And though the Kannapolis native has seen his fair share of change, as well, Lambirths life seems to have come full circle. As a project manager in UNC-Charlottes bioinformatics lab on the N.C. Research Campus, Lambirth walks and drives many of the same streets he did in his youth. I do have the nostalgia of the mill and driving past the mill, he said. The mills were huge. I mean they were big, and they were actually split across four plants. The one that was here in this exact location, which was plant one, was the biggest plant. Lambirth said he drove past the buildingwhich sat where NCRC is todayevery day on his way to high school. It was enormous, he said. Just driving past and youd look straight up, and youd see the top of it, and it was just this huge, giant brick square. I remember some of the doors on the side of it would be open, and you could kind of see in, see all the pipes and all the industrial-looking things in there. … Continue reading

Latin America bioinformatics project attracts criticism – SciDev.Net

Posted: at 11:45 pm

By Luisa Massarani and Ben Deighton The programme, funded by Research Councils UK, is the first of its kind by the organisation to have such an international reach and to offer tailored training, according to an EMBL-EBI announcement.Initially designed to run for just over four years, the programmes activities will include research secondments, train-the-trainer workshops, short courses and e-learning resources. Training will address three grand challenges identified as significant for Latin America: communicable diseases, sustainable food production and protecting biodiversity.EMBL-EBI, which is part of an international research organisation funded by 25 national governments, justified the programme by saying that Latin American bioinformatics research was under-represented in public archives. This is partly due to a shortage of expertise in data analysis and interpretation, it says.According to the CABANA announcement subtitled Latin America on the bioinformatics map one of the most important aims is to strengthen the regions existing research networks in this area.But the 400-member-strong Iberoamerican Society of Bioinformatics (SoIBio), the main regional scientific and professional body in this field, was not aware of the initiative. The society aims to promote research and development in bioinformatics and computational biology in Latin America, Portugal and Spain.We welcome new programmes and projects supported … Continue reading
