Major Update to LINCS Data Portal 2.0 with New Functionalities

The Library of Integrated Network-Based Cellular Signatures (LINCS) is an NIH Common Fund program with the goal of generating a large-scale and comprehensive catalogue of perturbation-response signatures by utilizing a diverse collection of: Perturbations (e.g. chemical, genetic, disease state) Model Systems (e.g. cell lines, differentiated cells, embryonic stem cells) and Sssay Types (e.g. gene expression, protein expression,...

Public-Private Partnership to Facilitate Ontology Use and Application

Ontology sounds a lot like a medical specialty—but it’s not related to Oncology, Otolaryngology, or Ophthalmology—except that researchers organizing Big Data in Biomedicine into different ‘ontologies’ or categories could help expedite new drug targets and discoveries in these specialties, and others, in the future. The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine is joining a partnership to combine advances in ontologies, templates,...
