In addition to our booth at Wednesday evening's showcase, DWBio's Dr. Sandra Porter, along with Dr. Ruth Wrightsman, and Dr. Deborah Overath, will host a breakfast roundtable discussion on social media. And, Friday we'll join our InnovATEBIO colleagues as we introduce the new national center for biotechnology education: InnovATE BIO
Dr. Sandra Porter presents at the 5th Life Discovery Conference (March 21-23) in Gainsville FL.
Caturday Microbiomes – Thinking Outside the Litter Box With Danny and Lil Bub
Author : Sandra Porter, Digital World Biology LLC and Bio-Link
Abstract : Learn how to investigate and compare the microbiomes from Lil Bub, a YouTube celebrity cat with several genetic abnormalities, and Danny, a normal house cat, using whole genome DNA sequencing data provided by Phase Genomics, Inc.
Are you attending the WSTA conference in Bellingham ? Be sure to look for the Digital World Biology booth. We will have iPads with Molecule World, so you can try out some molecular modeling and we'll have card decks for playing lower tech card games. You'll be able to play Amino Fish , ... Read more
Bioinformatics methods tap into some amazing technologies and resources but the real power of these tools isn't always clear to our students. This talk will focus on using a combination of protein blast and molecular modeling to identify amino acids in a drug binding site and predict whether a different protein will be likely to bind the same drug.
In talk, I will demonstrate how existing drugs might be repurposed to treat viral infections. Learn how students can apply bioinformatics tools like BLAST and Molecule World to address real-world problems and make discoveries ... Read more
