Tip of the Week: SciVee, the YouTube of science

Every week we do a video tip of the week. Every week we use SciVee to upload and share that video (our account here). We now have nearly 50 tips and videos residing at SciVee. SciVee has been called the YouTube of science. Like YouTube, it allows you to upload videos, though in this case exclusively related to science. Additionally though, SciVee allows you to do some ‘science-specific’ actions you wouldn’t be able to do with YouTube or Vimeo. PubCasts and PosterCasts are two of several such features (Papercasts are similar to Pubcasts, only non-published papers). These features allow you to upload a video describing your research and then upload a paper and poster and sync the paper or poster to the video. This allows the author to describe the paper (or poster) and the research while the viewer can see the relevant sections of the paper or poster. There is more about how to do this here. A virtual poster session, or a virtual talk. Once you do that, you can embed your video on another web site (as we do here!) to share and allow others to share. It’s an excellent tool to share your research and get it to a wider audience.

Today’s tip of the week is a short intro to SciVee and a quick tutorial on uploading your own videos.

At the end you’ll see we have a community at SciVee called “Genomics Resource Training.” There you will see all the tips of the week we’ve done. In addition, we add other genomics and biological data resource tools and databases to the community when we find them. Check out and join the community:
