We are pleased to announce our new review paper describing challenges in amplicon and metagenomics sequencing, which has just been published in Briefings in Bioinformatics (https://doi.org/10.1093/bib/bbz155).
We are pleased to announce the next generation of the online resources AraPheno (https://arapheno.1001genomes.org) and the AraGWAS Catalog (https://aragwas.1001genomes.org) which has just been published in the journal Nucleic Acids Research (https://academic.oup.com/nar/advance-article/doi/10.1093/nar/gkz925/5603218). AraPheno is a central and manually curated repository for high-quality phenotypes for the model organism Arabidopsis thaliana. As of September 2019 AraPheno contains more than 462 publicly available phenotypes, making it the largest data resource for population-scale phenotypes in A. thaliana, by far. With this release, AraPheno has been extended to support RNA-Seq expression profiles for thousands of samples and genes.
Dominik Grimm contributed as a member of the international RELISH Consortium to create a large annotated dataset for benchmarking document similarity literature search. The manuscript with the title “Large expert-curated database for benchmarking document similarity detection in biomedical literature search” got published in the journal Database – The Journal of Biological Databases and Curation from Oxford Academic (link).
