Postdoctoral funding schemes in Europe report 2016

The Science Europe association has just published its Postdoctoral Funding Schemes in Europe Survey Report.

The report gives a mapping of support opportunities for postdoctoral researchers, or ‘postdocs’, to improve understanding of what funders do to support researchers’ careers after the completion of their PhD, and to learn whether existing funding schemes can be improved in terms of career support.

This report is a valuable source of information for researchers since the postdoctoral period is a critical phase in their careers.

BioCreative V.5 call for participation

BeCalm has just announced that the BioCreative V.5 Challenge is now open. In line with previous BioCreative challenges, the result of participating teams will be presented at the BioCreative V.5. evaluation workshop, similar to previous BioCreative events, that will take place in Madrid (Spain) in March 2017.

The BioCreative V.5 Challenge will address:

  • The development and evaluation of named entity recognition systems for chemical and gene/protein entity mentions.
  • The proof-of concept implementation of a continuous text annotation metaservice, called BeCalm.
Bioinformatics software repositories: OMICtools & MyBioSoftware

Nowadays, there is a vast amount of researchers and developers creating bioinformatics software, tools and libraries. Although web search engines are important resources when looking for existing bioinformatics software, dedicated sites are also welcome. In this scenario, OMICtools and MyBioSoftware are two valuable resources, since they provide high quality, curated lists and reviews of existing bioinformatics software.

OMICtools is a manually curated metadatabase that provides an overview of more than 4400 web-accessible tools related to genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics. All tools have been classified by omic technologies (next-generation sequencing, microarray, mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance) associated with published evaluations of tool performance.

Similarly, MyBioSoftware is a blog-like web page that offers a complete, up-to-date list of bioinformatics software, classified in different categories such as assembly tools, proteomics or RNA analysis, among others.

SING group will be present in Transfiere 2016 forum with InNoCBR

The European Forum for Science, Technology and Innovation (Transfiere), which celebrates its 5th edition next 10th and 11th of February at Málaga (Spain), represents a business chance to find potential, technological partners of the scientific and business areas. Transfiere is the biggest professional and multi-sectoral forum of Spanish Innovation, involving public administrations, business associations, european centers of innovating companies, technology centers, clusters, companies (big, SMES, EBTs, and startups), foundations, institutes of technology, scientific and technological parks and universities.

In this year's edition, SING research group will participate with InNoCBR, an intelligent system for the detection and classification of nosocomial infection cases developed in collaboration with the Preventive Medicine Service at Complejo Hospitalario Universitario de Ourense (CHUO) and the support of the University of Vigo.

Launching of the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)

Thomson Reuters recently launched the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which extends the universe of publications in Web of Science in order to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields. ESCI makes content visible in Web of Science Core Collection to key opinion leaders, evaluators and funders, even if it has not yet reached a notorious citation impact on an international audience.

Journals included in ESCI have passed a first editorial evaluation and can continue to be considered for inclusion in SCIE, SSCI, or AHCI, which have rigorous selection criteria and evaluation processes. All ESCI journals will be indexed according to the same standards, including cover-to-cover indexing, cited reference indexing, subject category assignment, and indexing all authors and addresses.
