NCBINCBI is offering two webinars to the New England region in March. They are: Overview of NCBI Molecular Databases on Wed, Mar 19, 2014 3:15 PM – 5:15 PM  and NCBI BLAST Services on Thu, Mar 20, 2014 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM.  These are scheduled for 2 hours but should be done in an hour and a half. Please follow the links below to register for the classes.

Overview of NCBI Molecular Databases, March 19, 2014  3:15 PM
This webinar provides an introduction to the molecular databases at the NCBI and covers accessing data through the Entrez system and BLAST. It provides an overview of databases, describes types of molecular data, and demonstrates sequence, variation, genome information and BLAST searching using a single gene as an example to navigate across the integrated databases, search tools, and other resources. Registration: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8112845858136628481
(Note:  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.)

NCBI BLAST Services, March 20, 2014 9:00 AM
This session highlights new features and demonstrates the practical aspects of using NCBI BLAST, the most popular sequence similarity service in the world. The workshop demonstrates useful but under-used features of the updated service including direct access from the Entrez sequence databases; the integration and expansion of Align-2-Sequences; organism limits, other filters and re-organized databases on the submission forms; formatting options (CDS, sorting by position, taxonomy reports) and downloading options on results; and TreeView analysis of results. It also shows how the new conserved domain enhanced protein BLAST service (DELTA-BLAST) improves the sensitivity and specificity of protein BLAST and demonstrates two new sequence analysis services that have been added to the BLAST area of the NCBI site: Primer BLAST, an oligonucleotide primer designer and specificity checker, and a multiple protein sequence alignment tool (COBALT). These new aspects of BLAST provide easier access and results that are more comprehensive and easier to interpret and analyze.

Judith Lerner paintingPlease stop by the Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library on the 5th floor of DHMC (right above the Main Entrance) to see Judith’s work.

About Judith Lerner:

Judith is a colorist, exploring shapes formed by shadows and light, threading colors on their way from the gaudy to refinement.  Her perception of the richly patterned countryside focuses on a continuing investigation of the colors in nature and the seasonal changes, always filtered through imagination and memory.

As a landscape painter, her technique in gouache presents broad vistas as well as details, using her immediate environment of the Connecticut River Valley of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and travels.

Though best known for landscapes, she also produces paintings of botanicals each summer – a series of lotus dancing, roadside wildflowers, and garden flowers.

She has been a printmaker, an art director and designer of record album covers, and a book illustrator.

She received her BFA from the University of the Arts, in Philadelphia, and completed graduate work in Classical Archaeology at the University of Pennsylvania.

Her paintings and prints have been the subject of many solo gallery and group exhibitions in New York, Boston, New England, Washington, D.C., and London; and her paintings have been represented in the U.S. Department of State’s Art in Embassies program.

Lerner is represented in public, private and corporate collections including the De Cordova Museum, the First National Bank of Boston (Bank of America), the Philadelphia Print Club (The Print Center), the New Hampshire State House, and the Fletcher Allen Health Care Hospital in Burlington, Vermont.

The Seasons, a four panel mural series of Vermont landscapes, was commissioned by the Vermont Council on the Arts, and is installed in the Franklin County Courthouse in St. Albans, Vermont.

Lerner moved to Lyme, NH in 1971 and joined the beginnings of AVA Gallery in 1973.

Work can be seen in the studio by appointment, on the website, and during Open Studios throughout the Summer and Fall seasons, and as currently represented by Burlington City Arts.

In a December “App Smart” section of The New York Times, columnist Kit Eaton remembers when we were promised paperless lives with amplified Internet accessibility, and most recently, increased mobile technology.  Freedom from the paper trail has not yet arrived, but Eaton’s review of free and for-purchase mobile applications will help you manage documents and reduce the need to carry around and save physical items.  Click here to read more on the pros and cons of iOS applications such as Readdle’s Scanner Pro, Genius Scan, Perfect OCR, or the Android application Mobile Doc Scanner.

Application Highlights:

Genius Scan

genius-scanUsing your camera on your mobile device, take a picture and store it directly into Genius Scan or utilize your camera’s stored images to import saved pictures.  Genius Scan creates a new PDF file every time an image is uploaded. It also allows you to add to existing documents for multi-page PDFs and helpful organization.

 

You can also export files as a PDF or JPG through email or iAnnotate (for example).  The bonus Wi-Fi-sync option with a nearby computer is available if you like, and you also have the ability to adjust the resolution of an image.  The free version (Genius Scan “Lite”) has sync limitations with Dropbox, Evernote and other cloud storage providers.

Automatic and manual cropping allows you to make the best of your captured image:

genius-scan-screen

Genius Fax

Genius Fax works directly with Genius Scan to allow for faxing a document, when sharing a PDF is not an option. Genius Fax also makes available a cover page when faxing a file, if desired.  Payment in advance is required for each file, prior to sending the fax.

Here is an example of stored fax transactions, and a welcome homepage:

genius-fax
The application’s mobile cover page allows for straightforward fax submission:

genius-fax-screen

Start Lite

Start Lite allows you to create a PDF from a webpage.  The application will become your web browser for quick “PDFMe” options. Alternatively (and after download), you may enter the letter “S” to the beginning of your Safari webpage and the Start Lite PDF option will automatically begin.  Your PDFs are stored for quick access offline, and with this lite app version, 3 free PDFs can be created everyday.

Below:  See how you may use multiple tabs for browsing and you can use menu bars to toggle between views.

start-lite

A summary of open webpages appears on the left-menu column.  Swipe the screen to open or close this menu.  Selecting “new tab” opens a new webpage.  Also, view your stored PDF files by selecting “My PDF Files.”

By selecting “My PDF Files,” the right column lists all of your saved PDFs:

Swiping between the three menu pages allows you to see open tabs and webpages (to the far left), stored documents (in the center), and an open document or webpage (on the right):
