Remembered affect and leisure activity: associations with gender, current activity level, and type of activity

Courtney J. Stevens, Tiffany J. Callahan, Rebecca M. Warner & Angela D. Bryan
Prior work has found affective responses to exercise to be predictive of subsequent physical activity participation. However, the nature of this association has not been thoroughly explored in naturalistic settings. Purpose: To assess the relationship between leisure activity (active vs. passive) and remembered energetic mood change using a modified Day Reconstruction Method.

Facilitating researcher engagement with curation during the data paper publication

Tristan Matthews
Scientific Data is the Nature Research journal that focusses on the sharing of research data. We provide extensive, expert curation for datasets associated with each Data Descriptor, creating rich, structured, machine-readable metadata records of the data generation. These render the data more Findable and Accessible. Our in-house data curators also interact with the curation community to adhere to formal and up-to-date policies.
However, in-depth in-house curation is time-consuming and prone to human error, since the curator...

Involving the research community in biocuration of genes and pathways

Sushma Naithani, Justin Preece, Parul Gupta & Pakaj Jaiwal
Researchers and database users can play a crucial role in advancing public genomic resources and benefit from active engagement. Acquiring Big Data literacy and biocuration skills are important incentives for researchers, and especially could help young researchers to think more critically about their research projects and get acquainted with relevant bioinformatics tools and data resources. Plant Reactome (http://plantreactome.gramene.org) curators tested strategies for introducing researchers to pathway curation tools, harnessing biologists’ expertise in curating plant pathways,...

Autophagy Targeted Curation

Thawfeek Varusai, Cristoffer Sevilla, Lisa Matthews, Marc Gillespie, Lincoln Stein, Guanming Wu, Peter D’Eustachio & Henning Hermjakob
Autophagy is the lysosomal degradative process of cellular components and is essential for cell survival, differentiation, development and homeostasis. Dysfunctional autophagy results in various pathologies including neurodegenerative diseases, infectious diseases and cancers. Reactome is a freely available manually curated human pathway database that provides an interactive service to search, investigate and download data. Reactome provides thoroughly curated, annotated and reviewed information on the autophagy pathway. Every mechanistic detail in the process is curated and annotated...

Data integration and visualization at the 4D nucleome data portal

Burak Alver, Alexander Balashov, Shannon Ehmsen, Koray Kirli, Soohyun Lee, Luisa Mercado, Sarah Reiff, Andrew Schroeder, Chad Serrant, Carl Vitzthum, Nils Gehlenborg & Peter J. Park
The 4D Nucleome Consortium aims to elucidate the nature of DNA conformation in the nucleus both spatially and temporally. The 4DN Data Portal (https://data.4dnucleome.org) was created as a community resource to collect and disseminate data generated by the Consortium with complete experimental metadata following a FAIR approach. The data portal contains many innovative experiment types that probe the 3D interactions of chromatin, including Hi-C methods, DamID-seq, Repli-seq, super-resolution microscopy, and more. In addition to making...

Comparative genetics and genomics of mouse strains and species at Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI)

Cynthia Smith, Carol Bult, Joel Richardson & Mouse Genome Informatics
This poster describes the incorporation of mouse strain genomic data into Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI). Gene models for all strains are available from mouse gene detail pages. Mouse strains and stocks are listed together with associated mutations and QTL, phenotypes, disease model information, commercial availability and curated literature references. A multiple genome viewer is available to align syntenic genome regions of different sequenced mouse strains and species. Mouse SNPs are available to search, and compare...
