I was recently looking at the relative orientation of phage terminase genes along the genome. Here is a little summary.
We teach a lot of bioinformatics. Here are some public resources we rely on. These are pulled from twitter, the web, and all over the place, and the text ended up being used elsewhere. Please feel free to suggest more to Rob!
So you want to allow users to upload files to your server? This can be dangerous, very quickly someone will upload a malicious PHP script that allows them access to the directories of your web applications.
Here are some tips and tricks to aid in the safety of your server. We use all of these, and some others that are not included here so that the bad guys can’t figure out all of our security approaches!
At some point you will want to request a letter of recommendation from one of your Professors. Here are some tips that you should consider before you do so.

We are pleased to announce the SoCal Bioinformatics Hackathon.
From 10-12 January, 2018, the NCBI will help run a bioinformatics hackathon in Southern California hosted by San Diego State University! The hackathon will focus on advanced bioinformatics analysis of next generation sequencing data, proteomics, and metadata. This event is for researchers, including students and postdocs, who have already engaged in the use of bioinformatics data or in the development of pipelines for bioinformatics analyses from high-throughput experiments. Some projects are available to other non-scientific developers, mathematicians, or librarians.
Sitting in a master-class on ecology from Jennifer Martiny at UCI someone asked if you could explain ecological diversity in terms of ice cream. Of course you can.
