I'm a Woman on a Mission!
I have to summarize the issues raised in articles in the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology (JASIST). Now, this is fun stuff, people!
Here's a sampling of the articles:
article: Introduction to Bioinformatics
Bioinformatics is a multifaceted discipline combining many scientific fields including computational biology, statistics, mathematics, molecular biology, and genetics. Bioinformatics enables biomedical investigators to exploit existing and emerging computational technologies to seamlessly store, mine, retrieve, and analyze data from genomics an proteomics technologies.
article: Relying on Electronic Journals: Reading Patterns of Astronomers
article: Genescene: An Ontology-Enhanced Integration of Linguistic and Co-Occurrence Based Relations in Biomedical Texts
The increasing amount of publicly available lit and experimental data in biomedicine makes it hard for biomedical researchers to stay up-to-date. Genescene is a toolkit that will help alleviate this problem by providing an overview of published literature content.
article: Integrated Bioinformatics Application for Automated Target Discovery
In this article we present an in silico method that automatically assigns putative functions to DNA sequences.
See what I mean? Doesn't it sound like fun? Wish me luck! (My weekend is shot.)
