  • Option for real names in forum profiles?

    Hi all,

    I would find it useful to be able to show/see forum poster's real names (opt in of course). People are doing this already with their SeqAnswers wiki accounts, are these connected to the forum accounts in some way? If so could the forum profile link to the user's wiki profile?

    Alternatively is is possible to change a username?

    Thanks,

    Peter

    Hmm, looks like I can edit my "Custom User Title" from "Senior Member", maybe I should just use that field?

    Or can a Forum account username be renamed by an admin?

      I don't know about the forum, but I can tell you about the wiki. Indeed, each user in the forum is mirrored in the wiki, and it's possible to provide a direct link between the two. In addition, users can describe themselves using a minimal form in the wiki.

      I have planned to initialize these links for each wiki user 'by default', but I got hung up trying to create a 'bot' account on the wiki to do this job. (Bot accounts are difficult precisely because of the way the forum accounts link to the wiki accounts, but it's not a serious problem TBH).

      Once this is done, I wonder if the forum profile could be configured to show the information provided on the wiki page?

      I'll also look into integrating ORCID into the wiki.

        I'll just do that.

          Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
          by seqadmin




          The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

          Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
          by seqadmin


          In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
