Introduction to Circos, Features and Uses // CIRCOS Circular Genome Data Visualization |
Have you noticed how beautifully everyday science and technology is rendered in movies? Information is delivered seamlessly from interfaces oozing with style and function. While others complain that the movie doesn't get the science facts right, I contrarily note that it doesn't get the science look right. No busy scientist is able to make such great design and type face choices!

The myths of bioinformatics software | Bits of DNA |
If you make your software free for commercial use, you are effectively creating a subsidy for companies, one that is funded by your university / your grants. You are a corporate hero! Congratulations! You have found a loophole for transferring scarce public money to the private sector. If you’ve licensed your software with BSD you’ve added another subsidy: a company using your software doesn’t have any reason to share their work with the academic community. There are two reasons why you might want to reconsider offering such subsidies. First, by denying yourself potential profits from sale of your software to industry, you are definitively removing any incentive for future development/maintenance of the software by yourself or future graduate students. Most bioinformatics software, when sold commercially, costs a few thousand dollars. This is a rounding error for companies developing cancer or other drugs at the cost of a billion dollars per drug and a tractable proposition even for startups, yet the money will make a real difference to you three years out from your Ph.D. when you’re earning a postdoc salary.

Experimental Factor Ontology - Summary | NCBO BioPortal |
The Experimental Factor Ontology (EFO) is an application focused ontology modelling the experimental variables in multiple resources at the EBI and Open Targets. The ontology has been developed to increase the richness of the annotations that are currently made in resources and to promote consistent annotation, to facilitate automatic annotation and to integrate external data. The ontology pulls together classes from reference ontologies such as disease, cell line, cell type and anat...
