  • Hi..also, deer in headlights.

    Hi all,

    You guessed it...total Noob. I am a graduate student that just joined a lab at the University of Utah. The project that I would like to undertake involves sequencing a retrovirus that has been passaged through several hosts. The goal is to get some information on the genetic basis/kenetics of the apparent adaptations. It looks like my department is going to get a MySeq, which is pretty exciting. I think the platform will suit my needs nicely. In terms of bioinformatics, this is going to be an uphill struggle for me. The only work I have done in this realm is a little metagenomic mining for a natural product synthesis pathway. While very informative, i started with the data set and went from there. So, that is where I am. I look forward to becoming an active member of the site and bioinformatics community as a whole. Hopefully it will not be too hard to adhere to ECO's guidelines, although every question I will have for the next month or two will have been answered several times I am sure.

    --Please take everything thing I say with a grain of salt, because, if grad school has taught me anything, it's that I'm an idiot--

    Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
    by seqadmin




    The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...

    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...
