http://www.fao.org/agriculture/crops/thematic-sitemap/theme/seeds-pgr/gbs/en/ Plant genetic resources are a strategic resource at the heart of sustainable crop production. Their efficient conservation and use is critical to safeguard food and nutrition security, now and in the future. Meeting this challenge will require a continued stream of improved crops and varieties adapted to particular agro-ecosystem conditions. The loss of genetic diversity reduces the options for sustainably managing resilient agriculture, in the face of adverse environments, and rapidly fluctuating meteorological conditions. Well-managed genebanks both safeguard genetic diversity and make it available to breeders. The Genebank Standards for Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, prepared under the guida...
The Gene resource at NCBI is a central hub for accessing nearly all molecular and literature resources for a particular gene. You can easily answer the most common questions and perform the most common tasks by starting in Gene. In this webinar you will learn about the structure and contents of the Gene resource and how to use Gene to answer the following questions about a gene: Handout and Other Materials: http://go.usa.gov/xXa2g * Where is the gene located (chromosome and position) in the genome assembly? * What are the Reference genomic, transcript and protein sequences for the gene? * What variations are present in the gene and are they associated with disease? * In what tissues and under what conditions is the gene expressed? * What are the equivalent genes (homologs) in other spec...

http://www.fao.org/plant-treaty/en/ The Global Information System on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture will make the search for deeper information on diverse data sets easier for the global community by creating a new global public good in the form of a digitized data pool on food plants. Since 2007 the seed treaty (ITPGRFA) has facilitated the pooling and exchange of crucial genetic material of the world’s most important food crops, supporting their collective management and encouraging their use – and maintaining the pooled material as a public good under the management of the global community. The new System will make will also make available key information that will add value to the genetic resources for farmers, breeders, the seed sector and the scientific community. ...

The NCBI Gene database is a resource that centralizes gene related information into individual records. Many different types of gene-specific data are connected to the record including sequence accessions, nomenclature, genomic location and organization, publications, gene products and their attributes, expression, interactions, pathways, homology, variation and its phenotypic consequences and useful links to databases both internal and external to NCBI.

Set in the near future, 'The Love Gene' is a drama about a young boy called Charlie who is found to be one of the last of his kind to have the ability to love. Has he missed the evolution bus or have the rest of the city? With the $10,000 grant, we would be able to give the story the equipment and resources it deserves.

Researchers generate lists of genes through experiments like microarray, next generation sequencing, etc. DAVID is a popular, open source, tool used to explore the functinal enrichment in the gene sets.
To permit translation of a promising therapy from the research laboratory to a human clinical trial, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires efficacy data, toxicological and pharmacological characterization of the drug, clinical grade drug manufacturing, a well-designed clinical trial protocol and appropriate institutional approvals. The Gene and Virus Therapy Shared Resource provides the resources and expertise in manufacturing and animal testing of recombinant viruses to meet these FDA requirements for Mayo Clinic Cancer Center investigators with promising virus-based therapies.

Dr. LeBoeuf's research group focuses on the fate and transport of contaminants in the environment, including engineered nanomaterials within groundwater, soil, and sediment systems. Additionally, his work focuses on application of advanced computational methods for optimization of hydropower production constrained by water flow and quality requirements and development of spill management information systems for inland waterways. He is Associate Professor and Associate Chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Vanderbilt University. Overall areas of research interest include: environmental engineering, water resources engineering, water and environmental security, advanced characterization of natural organic matter, systems optimization and management, and contamina...
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-cancer-gene-we-all-have-michael-windelspecht Within every cell in our body, two copies of a tumor suppressor gene called BRCA1 are tasked with regulating the speed at which cells divide. Michael Windelspecht explains how these genes can sometimes mutate, making those cells less specialized and more likely to develop into cancer.

( http://www.abnova.com ) - Conserved domains database (CDD) is a protein annotation resource that consists of a collection of well-annotated multiple sequence alignment models for ancient domains and full-length proteins. These are available as position-specific score matrices (PSSMs) for fast identification of conserved domains in protein sequences via RPS-BLAST (Reverse Position-Specific).
