Here are some useful resources (work in progress in my spare time). Know of any other good ones? Let me know!
Finding science 🙂
PubMed – paper repository. you can set up alerts for particular search terms -keywords, authors, combinations – life saver!
Twitter – surprisingly useful as long as you acknowledge that your news will be biased by who you follow. Follow journals, scientists, funding agencies etc for all sorts of science/funding-related news
reverse complement – gives you the reverse complement for your sequence
ligation calculation tool – calculates how much insert to use for given vector: insert ratios for different sizes
codon translation (standard eukaryotic)
common sequences – sequences of promoters, selection markers and reporters
PCR primer analysis – this page also has a ton of other tools which I haven’t explored
BLASTn – nucleotide similarity search
multiple sequence alignment (EBI – they also have a load of other useful tools)
Cell mentor – from technical webinars to general science careers advice
