Genomining of Paris has upgraded its GetDB remote database download resource to provide access to the new UniProt database, which went live on Dec. 15. UniProt combines data from Swiss-Prot, TrEMBL, and the Protein Information Resource into a single resource (see PM 12-19-03).


Version 7.0 of the GenomeKnowledgeBase is available at http://www.genomeknowledge.org/. The latest version of the curated pathway resource includes 661 referenced human proteins organized into 62 different pathways.


Nucleic Acids Research has published its annual database issue, which includes papers describing 548 molecular biology and protein data resources. The issue is freely available, even for non-subscribers, at http://nar.oupjournals.org/content/vol32/suppl_1/.

The Scan

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.

TB Resistance Insights Gleaned From Genome Sequence, Antimicrobial Response Assays

Researchers in PLOS Biology explore M. tuberculosis resistance with a combination of sequencing and assays looking at the minimum inhibitory concentrations of 13 drugs.

Mendelian Disease Genes Prioritized Using Tissue-Specific Expression Clues

Mendelian gene candidates could be flagged for further functional analyses based on tissue-specific transcriptome and proteome profiles, a new Journal of Human Genetics paper says.

Single-Cell Sequencing Points to Embryo Mosaicism

Mosaicism may affect preimplantation genetic tests for aneuploidy, a single-cell sequencing-based analysis of almost three dozen embryos in PLOS Genetics finds.
