Greetings From GeneLab!
Since our last newsletter, we've had two releases of datasets. The July 10 data release included six datasets from NASA's Space Biology Microbial Observatory project led by Kasthuri Venkateswaran, Ph.D., of NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the California Institute of Technology. The data in these studies are only released through GeneLab. The September 21, data release comprised thirteen "legacy" studies that represent data previously published elsewhere, which are now curated in the GeneLab Data System.
GENELAB WORKSHOP - AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR GRAVITATIONAL BIOLOGY
GeneLab will host two sessions at the upcoming 2016 ASGSR Annual Meeting in Cleveland, Ohio on October 26-29. On Thursday October 27, from noon to 2:00 p.m.(EDT), GeneLab will present a plenary session with updates about the GeneLab program and scientific talks that highlight data in the GeneLab Data Repository. On Friday, October 28, from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m.(EDT), members of the GeneLab team will present a tutorial on how to use the GeneLab Data System, how to submit data, curation/metadata/standards, current and future capabilities and timeline, and collaborations. Both sessions will be webcast. Bring your questions and feedback. A more formal schedule of both sessions will be released soon and a brief announcement will be emailed to newsletter subscribers at that time.

FUTURE CAPABILITIES OF THE GENELAB DATABASE
The GeneLab team is working hard on developing and vetting future capabilities for the public release of the GeneLab Version 2.0 database slated for September 2017. Version 2.0 will feature Google-like, full-text search capabilities and federation to other omics databases including:
- National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO): http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/geo/
- European Bioinformatics Institute's (EBI) PRoteomics IDEntifications (PRIDE): http://www.ebi.ac.uk/pride/archive/
- MG-RAST (the Metagenomics RAST): http://api.metagenomics.anl.gov/api.html
DO YOU HAVE A PUBLICATION THAT CITES GENELAB?
We would like to know! Please send us your citation so that we can include it in our metrics and post it on the GeneLab website.
