I've Got Skills: Great Resources to Sharpen Your Science Abilities

Scizzle

As scientists, we wear many hats.  This variety is one of the great aspects of work, but staying polished on so many different areas can be challenging.  Whether you're learning something new, or just want to brush up, here are some terrific resources to keep your science skills gleaming.
 
You Did What Now? For learning new lab techniques, a video is worth a thousand words.  On JoVE, a video journal, you'll find crisp, clear footage of real experiments (you can even find Scizzle's founder video there).

New Science Publishing Platform Visualizes Lab Experiences

World Future Society

The heavy language of a peer-reviewed scientific study can be hard to follow—even for scientists. An author meticulously transcribes the steps of his or her experiments so that other scientists can reproduce them in their own labs. Those other scientists will try but may end up wringing their hands in frustration, not because the experiments are flawed, but because they’re simply too difficult to recreate from textual instructions alone. Sometimes, the scientists need to see an experiment to fully understand it.

A Safer Way To Do Miller-Urey Origin of Life Experiments

Science 2.0

A new protocol for conducting Miller-Urey Experiments is comprised of a modern and simplified approach to the method used by Dr. Stanley Miller and Dr. Harold Urey in 1953. Their research evaluated the possibility of organic compounds important for the origin of life to have been formed abiologically on early Earth.

Reinventing the Methods Journal: Increasing Reproducibility with Video Journals

Against the Grain

Scientific publishing has followed essentially the same model since the original scientific journal was published.  But simply explaining a technique with text does not always paint a clear enough picture.

Video Saved the Scientific Publication

TheScientist

Every practicing scientist knows how difficult it can be to make an experiment work in the lab. Especially frustrating is not being able to reproduce already published experiments. You read a paper, closely follow its materials and methods, buy all of the reagents, run across your department to secure all of the equipment, begin your experiment, and ... it doesn't work.

Value, Values, Validation

Online Searcher

Proving our value is a never-ending concern for librarians and information professionals. New technologies can enhance the value not only of what we bring to our jobs, our employers, and our user base, but also of the resources we access. One major change has been the addition of video formats to traditional bibliographic databases. JoVE, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, is at the forefront of this sea change, but other publishers are testing the inclusion of video in their library products and adding metadata to make retrieval of visual images more reliable.

Could breast cancer soon be treasted with a NIPPLE injection? Technique reduces side effects and is more effective.

Daily Mail

Women suffering from breast cancer could be spared the worst side effects of their drugs with a new technique which involves having injections through the nipples. Injecting drugs through the nipple offers direct access to the most common origin of breast cancer, the milk ducts. But because it is focused on the area needing treatment, it is more effective, toxic drugs are not absorbed by other body tissues, and the liver does not break down the drugs.

Scientists develop 3-D human models for cancer research

Health Central

Scientists have developed a new tumor test system, which they said will allow them to grow, observe and better understand how to treat biopsied human cancer cells. The findings, published by the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE), will likely alleviate the shortfalls of typical testing methods, researchers said. They noted that they chose to publish in JoVE because it allowed them to best explain and visualize their findings through video.

New technique could identify deadly superbugs within minutes

The Verge

Researchers in the US have developed a technique that could prove critical in the fight against so-called "superbugs" — virulent and sometimes deadly strains of bacteria that have developed resistance to antibiotic drugs. In a study published Wednesday in the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE), Dr. Vitaly Vodyanoy of Auburn University demonstrates how certain bacteria-killing viruses could be used to identify resistant superbugs, potentially providing a much faster way to treat patients and disinfect hospitals.

CIAT Scientists publish second peer-reviewed video

International Center for Tropical Agriculture

CIAT has just published its latest peer-reviewed video in The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE). The team, led by entomologist Soroush Parsa, filmed a protocol for evaluating whether friendly fungi can be introduced into plants to boost their resistance to pest attacks. The work is part of a proof-of-concept project funded by a Grand challenges Explorations grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

How to 3-D Print the Skeleton of a Living Animal

Wired

The idea to print skeletons from CT scans came from Evan Doney, an engineering student working in the lab of Matthew Leevy, who runs the biological imaging facility at the University of Notre Dame. ”At first I didn’t really know what the killer app would be, I just knew it would be really cool,” Leevy said. But he began to see new possibilities after striking up a conversation with an ear, nose, and throat specialist during an office visit for a sinus problem. “I actually got out my computer and showed him some slides, and by the end of it we were collaborating.”

Science Show-and-Tell

Mendeley

Back in 2006, Moshe Pritsker thought to use video technology to capture and transmit the intricacies of life science research, facilitating both the understanding and reproduction of experiments and techniques. This idea of “letting scientists look over each other’s shoulders” led to the launch of JoVE, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, which is peer reviewed and PubMed-indexed. As a scientific journal, it has an editorial board and hierarchical structure, and ensures consistent quality of its video content by maintaining a network of professional videographers spread across major science centres. Scientists from leading institutions participate by submitting video articles that visualize their experiments.

Researchers in the Lab, Ready for Their Close Up

The Chronicle of Higher Education

Moshe Pritsker was about 30,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, with North America ahead of his airplane and Europe receding, when he began seriously wondering why he was there. The year was 2003, and Mr. Pritsker, then a graduate student at Princeton University, had been to Scotland to learn how to grow stem cells. His adviser had asked him to reproduce a stem-cell experiment published in a prestigious journal. It didn't work. He tried again and failed again. So his adviser put him on a plane to Edinburgh, where the method had been perfected. The young scientist learned the technique.

eReviews: JoVE (The Journal of Visualized Experiments), September 15, 2012

Reviews.libraryjournal.com

JoVE is an intriguing vehicle for the dissemination of scientific information, but is among the most expensive such resources. Still, schools with research-intensive programs in the applied sciences will find it useful, and it will be a welcome complement to other resources describing laboratory protocols. It is recommended for academic institutions, especially research universities; some special libraries may also find the journal very useful.
