Translational medicine research application #1: target prioritisation and portfolio management

Over the last 3 years, Eagle has been involved in a EU funded project, sysVASC, a bench to bedside program with a systems biology approach to identify new targets of disease progression in cardio-vascular disease. This disease killed an estimated

Data management plans ... why?

A data management plan (DMP) is a formal document that manages the information lifecycle needs of an enterprise in an effective manner and leads to the implementation of good data governance practices. DMPs are a valuable asset for almost all..

Using QIIME to study populations of microbiomes

March 23, 2017 / no comments / in microbiomics / by Eleanor Stanley

A microbiome is a collection of microbes, such as bacteria, fungi, protozoans and viruses, that inhabit a given environment. One such environment is the human body; the human microbiome is important for maintaining health, and when things go..

The History of Data Curation

March 17, 2017 / no comments / in biocuration / by Eleanor Stanley

Data curation is an essential step in the management and analysis of genomic data. Curators capture, sort, tag and represent data so that it can be analysed and developed, and their work is central to the ways that biology works today. One Eagle..

To be, or not to be, a drug target gene

I have a drug target gene (or gene list) and I want to do a preliminary investigation to learn more about my gene and gene products of interest. But where do I start? Which genomic, biological or bioinformatics resources should I use? There are..

Timesheets - why ?

Keeping track of time spent on projects and assignments should be easy, no fuss. So why does this task meet resistance?

What can ChIP-seq data tell us?

Gene expression is tightly regulated and controls the development and maintenance of cells within all organisms. Misregulation of genes can cause adverse effects, for example in humans this could contribute to the initiation and progression of a..

Linking cancer genome resources, ICGC, TCGA and EGA.

BIOCURATION IS THE GLUE

In recent years science has moved rapidly from identifying the first genes involved in cancer (1) to characterising entire cancer genomes (2). These advances herald our understanding the molecular basis of this entire..

Do Data Standards Really Matter?

The assertion is that there is a molecular basis behind every phenotype; in our genome it is the riddle that can be solved to determine our appearance, behaviour, disease susceptibility, mental and physical health, and many other areas of..
