Bioinformatics Links Directory

URL:www.bioinformatics.ubc.ca/resources/links_directory
  • Organization, relevance of links
  • None
If you were to divide bioinformatics up in to broad categories, how would you do it? The folks at the Bioinformatics Links Directory segment the field into ten interesting groups, including some you might expect (DNA, RNA, Protein, Sequence Comparison) and others you might not expect (Model Organisms, Expression, Other Molecules). One of the categories (at press time) didn’t even have any entries. Ooops! That’s about all there is to fault, though, at Bioinformatics Links Directory’s excellent collection of links. It gained entry into my browser’s bookmarks just a few seconds after I scanned its contents. With excellent organization, good descriptions, and a very relevant set of links, the Bioinformatics Links Directory is a must for anyone interested in the field.

The Triple Package and Success

One theory for explaining “success," put forward by Amy Chua Jed Rubenfeld, posits cultural traits such as a superiority complex, personal insecurity and impulse control. Union College professors Joshua Hart and Christopher Chabris counter that intelligence, conscientiousness, and economic advantage are the most likely elements of success, regardless of ethnicity. Do you think that Hart-Chabris make a better argument for achieving success than the Chua-Rubenfeld theory?
