As you may know, we’ve been doing tips-of-the-week for three years now. We have completed around 150 little tidbit introductions to various resources*. At the end of the year we’ve established a sort of holiday tradition: we are doing a summary post to collect them all. If you have missed any of them it’s a great way to have a quick look at what might be useful to your work.
You can see past years’ tips here: 2008 I, 2008 II, 2009 I, 2009 II. The summary of the second half of 2010 will be available next week is here.
January 6: PSI SGKB’s Monthly Structural Genomics Update (Edited) a look at the Structural Biology Knowledgebase (SBKB). You can see more features in our SBKB full tutorial as well.
January 13: Like to show letter-based motifs in proportional display? IceLogo will do that for you.
January 20: Managing your references with Mendeley.
January 27: WebGBrowse, a great tool for non-programmers to set up sequence browsers.
February 3: Draw phylogenetic trees with Phylowidget.
February 10: Dynamic network and interaction displays with a web-based interface, GeneMania. For a deeper look, try the full tutorial.
February 17: Collecting and organizing biological names, including historical ones: uBio.
February 24: GOOD, the Gene-Oriented Orthology Database.
March 3: A very cool 3-D display of different resources, Caleydo.
March 10: HapMap data in HaploView.
March 17: A Word plug-in to help authors standardize terminology as they write scientific papers.
March 24: Genomicus, a neat web interface to explore evolutionary relationships.
March 31: PubGet, a handy tool for searching and reading papers, and it works with ResearchBlogging posts.
April 7: MitoCheck, a database of mitosis movies in normal and mutant cells. A very cool hybrid of cell and computational biology strategies coming together.
April 14: RatMine, one of the several “Mine” tools that is available for data mining.
April 21: The MEME suite of tools is introduced. There are great motif analysis strategies here. We have several (subscriber) tutorials on MEME components as well.
April 28: An exploration of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) site and their hot new BioMart query tools.
May 5: Learn about WAVe, Web Analysis of the Variome. This also led to another cool look at WAVe when one of the developers did a guest post on it: Guest Post: WAVe – Pedro Lopes.
May 12: Chromhome, a karyotype-level web tool.
May 19: A tour of genome variation tools, part of a series by Trey.
May 26: The Cancer Genome Workbench, a tool that gathers multiple cancer data resources in a handy portal.
June 2: The Mouse Resource Browser, a database of mouse databases.
June 9: Trey continues his genome variation tour.
June 16: A wealth of web service tools are collected in BioCatalogue.
June 23: We revisit the Structural Biology Knowedgebase to highlight some new features.
June 30: The third part of the genome variation tour explores more tools.
