The Importance of Listening—and Listening More—in Strategic Planning

I have spent much of the last year deeply involved in the creation of the very first NIH Digital Strategy Plan—an effort that requires listening across myriad NIH institutions and our stakeholders to glean what each finds important to our mission of seeking out and applying fundamental health care knowledge. I am proud to serve … Continue reading "The Importance of Listening—and Listening More—in Strategic Planning"

Announcing new links and annotations on Conserved Domain Search results!

Conserved Domain Search (CD Search) results now show domain architecture information and other annotations that further characterize predicted domain and protein function. These include links to PubMed, Gene Ontology (GO) terms, Enzyme Commission (EC) numbers, and the SPARCLE Domain Architecture Viewer. You can use these links on the results to find literature (PubMed), assign biological … Continue reading Announcing new links and annotations on Conserved Domain Search results!
