Single Cell Imaging Position

We have a single cell imaging position open to work on our project exploring the molecular basis of cell cycle checkpoints in budding yeast. The emphasis of this position will be on the collection and analysis of experimental data to...

Design of plant expression vectors

An article describing the rule-based design of plant expression vectors was published in PLoS ONE. This plant synthetic biology paper is a collaboration with Anna Coll and Kristina Gruden from the National Institute of Biology in Ljubljana. The GenoCAD file available in the online supplement is preloaded...

NIH Funding Rate

Dr. Sally Rockey published an interesting blog about the historical trends in NIH funding rates. The success rates are historically low but paradoxically, the number of people funded increases. This probably means the cost of managing government funds is going to...

GenoCAD has Moved!

GenoCAD has not been supported by an active research grant since 2013. As a result, the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute no longer has the resources necessary to maintain this free service to the community. Last we week we redirected the GenoCAD.org address...

Stochastic modeling of the cell cycle goes on…

A couple of weeks ago, we received the renewal of the NIH grant funding our collaboration with John Tyson to develop stochastic models of the regulatory network controlling the cell cycle in yeast. This is the third funding cycle of...

Database of biological parts

Nucleic Acids Research just published a paper describing the results of our efforts to analyze the annotations of thousands of plasmids commonly used across many life science specialties. This effort allowed us to release a database of genetic parts and...

Gen9 Launches Ordering Portal

The gene synthesis company Gen9 recently announced a new online ordering portal powered by Benchling, a provider of cloud-based bioinformatics tools.  This is welcome news as the ordering of synthetic DNA has been a source of frustration for a long...
