Bioinformatics: Nowomics - Track the latest data and papers relevant to your research
New

Tue 28 Oct 2014

Description
  • Nowomics - Access to the latest data and papers relevant to your research
  • Nowomics is a new website to help biologists stay up to date with the latest data and papers relevant to their research. Try it here.
  • Nowomics tracks new papers and many types of data in online repositories. You ‘follow’ the genes and processes you work on to see a Twitter-like news feed of new papers, annotation, interactions, curated comments and more.
  • For each gene you can also include information from orthologues and related genes directly in your news feed.
  • Data are currently included for human, mouse, rat, fly and plant.
  • This short workshop will show you how to use the Beta version of Nowomics to find the latest information for genes & keywords, how to set up your personalised news feed and configure email alerts. We’ll also demonstrate new portals to help researchers working on Drosophila or Arabidopsis find the latest and most popular papers.
