About Access Restrictions to Electronic Resources

Access and use of electronic resources made available by the Becker Medical Library are governed by license agreements between the School of Medicine and publishers or third parties. Several of the electronic resources carry some restriction on their use. Access may be restricted by user location, number of concurrent users, and/or password.

In short, most people experience access limitations based on the network to which their computer is connected. Below is a quick breakdown of what can be accessed from various networks.

Spotfire demo at WUSM on December 2nd

Researchers on campus have asked us to investigate whether there is enough interest to support a group or site license for TIBCO Spotfire. As part of that investigation, we've invited a scientist from Perkin Elmer to come and give a demo of TIBCO Spotfire and OmicsOffice.


Taming the Beast: Managing Bioinformatics Challenges. Data Integration, Omics, Screening, Scripting, and Beyond.

Date: Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Time: 10AM - 12PM

Location: Holden Auditorium (Farrell Learning and Teaching Center)


TIBCO Spotfire enables users to freely explore their data. Users can instantly visualize, mashup, interact with, and share their data at any level of detail. These capabilities of TIBCO Spotfire will be demonstrated in this talk.

Researchers working with genomics technologies face challenges that arise from inherent differences between platforms and protocols used for processing and analyzing the same or different samples. Data is annotated using different identifiers and incompatibilities during data reporting emerge making it difficult to validate, compare, and assess the technical reproducibility of gene expression results.  In this talk these challenges will be addressed using OmicsOffice®, an extension to TIBCO Spotfire® focused on genomics data analysis. OmicsOffice makes it easy to analyze and integrate microarray, PCR, RNA-Seq and Chip-Seq data to identify significant targets that were validated across many platforms and technologies. An overview of the OmicsOffice Data Integration tool will be presented, demonstrating how researchers can quickly integrate and compare data from two platforms. As an example, the demo will examine data from an Illumina RNA-Seq experiment and compare its ability to identify differentially expressed genes from Affymetrix microarray results.
