My lab is recruiting!  Especially looking for software / web developers who want to create community platforms for biomedical research.

http://sulab.org/2015/04/open-source-open-science-citizen-science-join-us/
If you follow our lab at all you've probably noticed some themes emerging in how we approach bioinformatics and biomedical research. To enumerate a few of those themes, we believe in: Open source: We have benefited from the long tradition of open source software in bioinformatics, and we in turn ...

Great points and feedback!  In order...

- We're not quite there yet, but yes, the next step in this is to normalize to appropriate biomedical ontologies (which then can be mapped to Wikidata).

- good point about "metabolic disease" and similar.  Truthfully I don't know off the top of my head whether that should be marked or not (we are using someone else's instructions, for reasons that will become clear after this first experiment). Anyway, good idea.

- Great idea!

Thanks Egon!

We have multiple #bioinformatics positions open in my lab for postdocs (or in exceptional circumstances, staff scientists).  If any of these hashtags interest you, click the link to read more!    #crowdsourcing   #genomics   #N -of-1 #semweb #integrativebiology #textmining   #seriousgames   #microbiome

http://sulab.org/2014/02/recruiting-postdocs-in-earnest/
There is currently no higher priority for our group right now than recruiting 2-3 new postdoctoral associates to join the lab. We are lucky enough to have very stable funding over the next few years, so these are already-funded positions waiting to be filled ASAP. I have posted two “traditional” ...

My lab is building a #CitizenScience app for patient & disease groups to advance science. We need beta testers! Please sign up at http://mark2cure.org. 
Scientific communication is broken. Progress in biomedical science is all about incrementally building off of the work of others. Currently, it takes far too long for one scientist's work to reach all the other scientists that would benefit. Mark2Cure will make scientific communication more ...

Cross-posting two recent blog posts that have generated some activity through Twitter...  The first: http://sulab.org/2013/06/creating-a-centralized-model-organism-database-cmod/ #genomics   #bioinformatics   #microbiome  
But what happens when your favorite organism isn't covered by one of these existing databases? The number of sequenced genomes is increasing rapidly1, via both targeted sequencing of organisms of interest as well as metagenomic sequencing of complex samples. It seems impractical to fund a model ...

Dr. +Andrew Su 's team at TSRI is hosting a BD2K / NoB hackathon May 7-9th 2015. This purpose of this hackathon is to bring together experts in their respective fields to collectively work on solving challenges related to biomedical big data. This hackathon will feature networking and mentoring with leading researchers and experts, hacking on exciting projects, prizes for the best contributions! (1st place: $500 and trophies), and delicious food (provided by Phil's BBQ, Bombay Coast, Regent's Pizza ...)

During this hackathon we will work on projects relating to any of the major challenges of biomedical big data, including:

Locating, gaining access to, standardizing, and documenting data, software tools, and APIs Developing effective, robust, reproducible and interoperable means of sharing data and software tools
Developing new methods for analysing biomedical big data
Training researchers for analysing biomedical big data
For more information see: https://github.com/Network-of-BioThings/nob-hq/wiki/1st-BD2K-3rd-Network-of-BioThings-Hackathon

Register Here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bd2k-hackathon-tsri-tickets-16010420599

Add a project idea to the list of projects: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AEzaMaH1NPBIS9Jg7xVPXbnAs4jlCXbmUk-eUAYkb4k/edit?usp=sharing

We have several scholarships and travel awards available. Please fill out this form to be considered. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/13GqTQ4u43MZSnkaFyXhpg7wO12d-LqH5WgHFxq-1p-o/viewform

Looking forward to seeing you!

"Science is a story that is increasingly difficult for individuals to stay abreast of, because of both its complexity and its volume. There are over one million new biomedical research articles published every year (one every 30 seconds!), so the fraction of the literature that any single scientist can read is tiny. In this talk, I describe our vision for how citizen science can help organize scientific knowledge — including a live demonstration using the TEDx audience!"

As part of building the case for creating our proposed CMOD resource, we wanted to know just how quickly the number of sequenced genomes was increasing. The thinking is that the more genomes are being sequenced, the more genomes there are that are going with virtually no community bioinformatics ...
