  • 2012 SciPy Bioinformatics Workshop

    We are pleased to announce the 2012 SciPy Bioinformatics Workshop held in conjunction with SciPy 2012 this July in Austin, TX.

    Python in biology is not dead yet... in fact, it's alive and well!

    Remember just a few short years ago when BioPerl ruled the world? Just one minor paradigm shift* later and Python now has a commanding presence in bioinformatics. From Python bindings to common tools all the way to entire Python-based informatics platforms, Python is used everywhere** in modern bioinformatics.

    If you use Python for bioinformatics or just want to learn more about how its being used, join us at the 2012 SciPy Bioinformatics Workshop. We will have speakers from both academia and industry showcasing how Python is enabling biologists to effectively work with large, complex data sets.

    The workshop will be held the evening of July 19 from 5-6:30.

    More information about SciPy is available on the conference site:


    !! Participate !!

    Are you using Python in bioinformatics? We'd love to have you share your story. We are looking for 3-4 speakers to share their experiences using Python for bioinformatics.

    Please contact Chris Mueller at chris.mueller [at] lab7.io and Ray Roberts at rroberts [at] enthought.com to volunteer. Please include a brief description or link to a paper/topic which you would like to discuss. Presentations will last for 15 minutes each and will be followed by a panel Q&A.

    * That would be next generation sequencing
    ** Yes, we aRe awaRe of that otheR language used eveRywhere, but let's celebRate Python Right now.

    Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
    by seqadmin


    Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

    Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
    by seqadmin


    Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
