Worthwhile reads in bioinformatics...

Just wanted to share some excellent resources in bioinformatics that I happened to catch on Twitter this morning. Both are dedicated issues and both are freely available online (yay!):

  1. The BioMart Virtual Issue from Database: The Journal of Biological Databases and Curation (HT @emblebi). If you haven't had a chance to play with BioMart, please do! From their siteThe BioMart project provides free software and data services to the international scientific community in order to foster scientific collaboration and facilitate the scientific discovery process. The project adheres to the open source philosophy that promotes collaboration and code reuse.Other publications related to BioMart can be found here and tutorials for BioMart are available from OpenHelix.
  2. Its almost time for the annual Database Issue from Nucleic Acid Research (due in January, see the 2011 issue here). Over 100 papers (!!) from the 2012 issue are already available online as Advance Access publications. Of particular note, The UCSC Genome Browser database: extensions and updates 2011 (HT @bffo).
