No-Touch Smartwatch Scans The Skin To See The World Around You, Carnegie Mellon University Study

4 years ago   |   By BioSpace

What are you doing now? Your next watch may know the answer.
Two new smartwatch prototypes developed at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, can guess what their wearer is up to by tracking subtle signals in their skin and muscles. The technology could allow the owner to answer calls, track activities, and more all without needing to be touched.
Hey, check out...

Lack of 'sleep' may zap cell growth, brain activity, study in plants suggests

4 years ago   |   By ScienceDaily

Lack of adequate sleep can do more than just make you tired. It can short-circuit your system and interfere with a fundamental cellular process that drives physical growth, physiological adaptation and even brain activity, according to a new study.

Importing Illumina BeadArray data into R

4 years ago   |   By Getting Genetics Done

A colleague needed some help getting Illumina BeadArray gene expression data loaded into R for data analysis with limma . Hopefully whoever ran your arrays can export the data as text files formatted as described in the code below. If so, you can import those text files directly using the beadarray package. This way you avoid getting bogged down with GenomeStudio, which requires a license (ugh) and only runs on Windows (ughhh). Here's how I do it.

R + ggplot2 Graph Catalog

R + ggplot2 Graph Catalog

4 years ago   |   By Getting Genetics Done

Joanna Zhao's and Jenny Bryan's R graph catalog is meant to be a complement to the physical book, Creating More Effective Graphs , but it's a really nice gallery in its own right. The catalog shows a series of different data visualizations, all made with R and ggplot2. Click on any of the plots and you get the R code necessary to generate the data and produce the plot.
You can use the panel on the left to filter by plot type, graphical elements, or the chapter of the book if you're actually using it. All of the code and data used for this website is open-source, in this GitHub repository...

Software from CSHL Genome Informatics 2015

4 years ago   |   By Getting Genetics Done

I just returned from the Genome Informatics meeting at Cold Spring Harbor. This was, hands down, the best scientific conference I've been to in years. The quality of the talks and posters was excellent, and it was great meeting in person many of the scientists and developers whose tools and software I use on a daily basis. To get a sense of what the meeting was about, 140 characters at a time, you can access all the Tweets sent Oct 28-31 2015 tagged gi2015 at this link .
Below is a very short list of software that was presented at GI2015. This is only a tiny slice of the tools and methods...

It's a dance-off! Vote for your 'Dance Your Ph.D.' video winner!

4 years ago   |   By Science Mag

Think you can explain your scientific research in dance? This year, 32 teams of scientists did just that for the annual Science /AAAS Dance Your Ph.D. contest. Without using jargon or Powerpoint, each one captures the scientific essence of a real thesis. Who will win this year's top prize of $1000 and a free trip to Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, for a screening of their dance—not to mention immortal geek fame?
Previous winners of the contest have helped whittle down the field to the 12 finalists below. A panel of judges from the worlds of dance and science are now scoring...
