Tip of the Week: Finding the right genomics resource

ohsearch_thumbOpenHelix just opened our new web site. We will still be offering the tutorials we’ve always offered (80 and growing!), but now we have a new search engine and database of many more resources. And it’s publicly available and free.

There are now thousands of databases and analysis tools for the researcher to use when doing research in biology and genomics. The first problem the researcher has is just finding those resources, finding the right one. In another step toward helping that happen, we’ve put together a highly relevant, curated database of genomics and biological resources available to the researcher and a search engine to find them based the context of the keyword found at the resource site, tutorials and even our blogs posts that mention the database. You will find that your searches will lead you to resources relevant to your needs. Today’s tip introduces this new search.

We strongly believe this is the best method available now for the researcher not only to find relevant resources, but to find training on how to use those resources. And check back, our database of resources will be growing, as will our features.
