Web content syndication through standard formats such as RSS and ATOM has become an increasingly popular mechanism for publishers, news sources, and blogs to disseminate regularly updated content. These standardized ...
A model for Bioinformatics training : the Marine Biological Laboratory
Many areas of science such as biology, medicine, and oceanography are becoming increasingly data-rich and most programs that train scientists do not address informatics techniques or technologies that are necessary for ...
Applications of natural language processing in biodiversity science
(Hindawi Publishing, 2012)
Centuries of biological knowledge are contained in the massive body of scientific literature, written for human-readability but too big for any one person to consume. Large-scale mining of information from the literature ...
The taxonomic significance of species that have only been observed once : the genus Gymnodinium (Dinoflagellata) as an example

Names are key to the big new biology
Those who seek answers to big, broad questions about biology, especially questions emphasizing the organism (taxonomy, evolution, ecology), will soon benefit from an emerging names-based infrastructure. It will draw on ...
Broadly sampled multigene analyses yield a well-resolved eukaryotic tree of life
An accurate reconstruction of the eukaryotic tree of life is essential to identify the innovations underlying the diversity of microbial and macroscopic (e.g. plants and animals) eukaryotes. Previous work has divided ...
