Are you one of those people who prefers interactive jobs over batch submissions?
Drop-ins in AG316 are on again Thursdays 10am to noon beginning Jan 30th, 2017.
Like last semester, these hours are a joint effort with ARCC and WyGISC as well.
Hope to see you there.
As always, Vikram and Nic are available for appointments in their offices in AnimSci/MolBio as well
Biobuilds came up with a new release 2 months back. They added a few new bells and whistles (Trimmomatic for instance) and upgraded many of the existing packages. Check it out here.
New Mexico BioInformatics, Science & Technology Symposium (NMBIST)
March 16-17, 2017
The New Mexico BioInformatics, Science & Technology (NMBIST) Symposium in Santa Fe, New Mexico is a two-day event which is supported by NIGMS's New Mexico IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (NM-INBRE) and the National Center for Genome Resources (NCGR). This educational event brings world class speakers to the southwest region, impacting approximately 150 interested undergrads and university faculty primarily from New Mexico (and beyond!).
The Core will be closed the following dates through the end of the year (dates below are inclusive):
End of year:

Qiime2.0.6 is live. Though billed as an incremental improvement, this is quite a jump. Complete with a separate web presence, tutorials, and forum. The documentation for the most part is much better organized in my opinion. Read on for more info.
ARCC has installed the NCBI databases listed below to be used once the BLAST module is loaded. The names in the list below are the correct spelling needed when comparing your query sequences against a particular NCBI database. If you are unfamiliar with any of the databases listed and want to know how the may be useful for your work, you will find an explanation of each of the databases here at the BLASTdb documents page.
Nic and/or Vikram will keep (whenever possible) weekly office hours to provide one on one help for folks on the main campus.

If you are gearing up to do a RNAseq experiment and wondering if you should sequence deeper or sequence more biological replicates, this article - which I find still relevant - would be very useful.
RNA-seq differential expression studies: more sequence, or more replication?
