The Clinical Atlas of Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography

Offers an interactive guidance to a systematic and scientifically critical interpretation of optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. The Clinical Atlas of Intravascular OCT consists of eight separate chapters offering the following contents: (i) Principles of OCT, (ii) Artefacts, (iii) Atherosclerosis, (iv) Evaluation of metallic stents, (v) 3D-OCT, (vi) Evaluation of bio-resorbable scaffold,s (vii) Miscellaneous (vein grafts, peripheral vessels, etc.), and (viii) New frontiers in OCT imaging.

The NGS WikiBook

A collaborative next-generation sequencing (NGS) resource. Users can search, browse, edit and create new content, so as to facilitate self-learning and feedback to the community. The overall structure and style for this dynamic material is designed for the bench biologists and non-bioinformaticians. The flexibility of online material allows the readers to ignore details in a first read, yet have immediate access to the information they need. Each chapter comes with practical exercises so readers may familiarize themselves with each step. The NGS WikiBook aims to create a collective laboratory book and protocol that explains the key concepts and describes best practices in this fast-evolving field.

ISCB / International Society for Computational Biology

A scholarly society for advancing understanding of living systems through computation and for communicating scientific advances worldwide. The ISCB serves its global membership by providing high-quality meetings, publications, and reports on methods and tools; by disseminating key information about bioinformatics resources and relevant news from related fields; and by actively facilitating training, education, employment, career development, and networking. We advocate and provide leadership for resources and policies in support of scientific endeavors and to benefit society at large.

SentimentVis Browser

Presents a list of visualization technique thumbnails organized in a grid. SentimentVis Browser is a web application allowing users to access to category statistics and a summary table with an overview of the complete categorization. It assists users in monitoring of public opinion in social media, literature analysis for digital humanities, or support for research of sentiment and stance in linguistics and natural language processing (NLP). Users can submit additional entries thanks to a form available from the top panel.

ClusterEnG / Clustering Engine for Genomics

Clusters big data and interactive visualizations including 3D views, cluster selection and zoom features. ClusterEnG aims at educating the user about the similarities and differences between various clustering algorithms and provides clustering tutorials that demonstrate potential pitfalls of each algorithm. The user can choose the clustering method used by the tool. It implements seven algorithms include k-means, k-medoids, affinity propagation, spectral clustering, Gaussian mixture model, hierarchical clustering and DBSCAN.

TeachEnG / Teaching Engine for Genomics

Provides interactive modules to help students and researchers understand key bioinformatics concepts. TeachEnG is an interactive online educational tool for reinforcing key concepts in sequence alignment and phylogenetic tree reconstruction. It proposes instructional games which allow students to align sequences by hand, fill out the dynamic programming matrix in the Needleman-Wunsch global sequence alignment algorithm, and reconstruct phylogenetic trees via the maximum parsimony and Unweighted Pair Group Method with Arithmetic mean (UPGMA) algorithms. With an easily accessible interface and instant visual feedback, TeachEnG will help promote active learning in bioinformatics.

DECIDE / Decision-aid & E-Counselling for Inherited Disorder Evaluation

Allows creation of clinical decision aids. DECIDE facilitates supportive functions of a genetic counsellor through patient-centred education and enhanced decision-making. It enables users to work individually, as a couple or family, or with a relative or friend, allowing patients to make decisions in ways that they find most comfortable and supportive. This tool provides an opportunity to make a decision about pharmacogenomics incidental findings or carrier status for recessive diseases.

ALTBIB / Alternatives to Animal Testing

Provides a survey of the literature in a format which facilitates easy scanning. ALTBIB includes citations from published articles, books, book chapters, and technical reports. It can be easy searchable through a friendly-user interface. The user can limit the search to a particular field. Users seeking a finer degree of precision in retrieval than available through either ALTBIB's standard Basic Search screen or Limits option searching can use the advanced searching features.

Research Objects

Maps the landscape of initiatives and activity in the development of Research Objects. Research Objects also aims to exchange of scholarly information on the Web. It improves the potential for understanding and reuses of research by making sure that the information that is needed to make a published resource useful is associated with it, and shared as a whole. The tool is a community site aimed at gathering together information, ideas, and interest around the topic of scholarly publication.

CGS / Classical Genetics Simulator

Offers the opportunity to perform controlled crosses with model organisms. CGS provides populations of Drosophila, Arabidopsis or mice with unknown patterns of inheritance and gives students the tools to design and perform experiments to discover these patterns. It allows biology students to apply lessons in Mendelian genetics to real-world situations. The tool can be used as a primary laboratory module for introductory biology or genetics courses, or as a supplement to a hands-on genetics module with real organisms.

KehrerEtHauser2012

Allows users to explore, analyze, and gain insight into such data. This online database contains several analytical and interactive visual methods allowing users to study multifaceted scientific data. The database purposes are exploration and analysis of single facets of such data. Then it transmits results from data analysis to users. One of its functions is to synthesize different types of information from different sources into a unified representation of the data.

GGD / Getting Genetics Done

Many resources offer a 10,000-foot view of the current trends in the field, reviews of various technologies, and guidelines on how to effectively design, analyze, and interpret experiments in human genetics and bioinformatics research. By comparison very few resources focus on the mundane, yet critical know-how for those on the ground actually doing the science. Getting Genetics Done aims to fill that gap by featuring software, code snippets, literature of interest, workflow philosophy, and anything else that can boost productivity and simplify getting things done in human genetics research.

BioManager

Obsolete
Offers provision of storage facility to contain users sequence and results files. BioManager provides a seamless workstation for bioinformatics analyses. It is designed as an online interface that allows the students to access the interface from their home computer, facilitating further study or the completion of assignments outside the class room. This tool facilitates creation of tutorials using a series of standard bioinformatic programs incorporated into a web interface.
