Primeros pasos por LinkedIn


Seguro que has oído hablar de Linkedin, a lo mejor tienes un perfil en él porque te han dicho que va bien para encontrar trabajo, o simplemente porque lo has visto en alguna noticia como un espacio con futuro.
Quizá no estés muy seguro de que es lo que te puede aportar, para conseguir tus objetivos aquí dejo un conjunto de consejos de mi experiencia de cómo usar Linkedin:
Linkedin

0)  Linkedin es una red profesional, si piensas que te vas a encontrar con información o contactos de amigos, estás muy alejado de lo que es.
Es un lugar para mantener el contacto con aquellos profesionales con los que te has encontrado a lo largo de tu vida y hacer nuevos contactos a la vez que compartís dudas e intereses comunes.

Red profesional

1) Una de las primeras cosas que hace alguien interesado en tí en Linkedin es mirar tu perfil.

¿Cómo lo tienes? Seguramente ya tienes una foto de perfil, ahora le faltará rellenarlo lo máximo que puedas sin engañar o exagerar...
Utilitza todas las opciones que puedas rellenar: la descripción, la experiencia que tengas...
Es una red de contactos profesional, ¡demuestra tu profesionalidad!, evita mayúsculas innecesarias, faltas de ortografía, puntuación...

Perfil
Si deseas contactar con más gente planteate tener un perfil en inglés.
2)Una vez tienes un perfil mínimo puedes buscar grupos de profesionales, de lugares donde compartir tus inquietudes a través de las discusiones en los grupos. Es una buena manera de aprender, y mostrar tu conocimiento del tema.

¿Crees que puedes responder a alguien alguna pregunta?  Responde siempre con profesionalidad, que se reflejen tus conocimientos y personalidad. 

Intereses

3) Si te interesa lo que pasa con algunas empresas las puedes seguir, así podrás saber si ofrecen puestos de trabajos, si tienen nuevos servicios, abren nuevas oficnias...
Como seguro que sabrás conocer el sector por el que te mueves es de vital importancia para poder desenvolverse bien por el.

Conocimiento del sector

Espero que te sea útil y que pronto te den resultados estos consejos, hazmelo saber por aquí o por Linkdedin.

Functional enrichment methods and pathways

For some time I have been working on one topic. I am not sure if this is how it started but I fail to see other reasons. So I'll describe why I'm now working with gene sets collections.

The trigger
I usually try to help others in Biostars, Bioconductor, and in the StackExchange network (specially in Bioinformatics). On one of these sites I was trying to help some person, and in one of the comments ( Jun 21 '17 ) it says:
You don't build pathway maps from bioinformatics data, you build them from wet-lab experiments. And I was : "Why not? We already know (kind of) the number of genes, and we have an idea or the number of metabolites in a cell. We have many data, why can't we build pathways?" But I did a brief literature search and I couldn't find anything (if there is something let me know in the comments).
The background
Let me explain why this comment got me puzzled: in my work I am usually asked what is the relevance of the lists of gen…

GSEA in Bioconductor

Gene Set Enrichment Analysis is a test thought to find if the position of a group along a list implies some difference. The most know method is the one maintained by the Broad Institute. As it was the first widely used in biology and holds several collection of gene sets. A gene set is a collection of genes related, by either a function or an experiment, it is as fuzzy described as a pathway.

In Bioconductor there is the under used tool of BiocViews, a topic for package classificacion. We can find a category for GSEAs under Software>BiologicalQuestion>GeneSetEnrichment.

This category list 74 packages at the time of writing, which provide function for Gene Set Enrichment Analysis. It will be too long (and too hard for me) to describe all the packages in that category. However, it doesn't include all the packages that perform gene set enrichment.

The first package for GSEA in Bioconductor one should look is GSEABase which provides with tools for reading files from the Br…

RISK cohort

Since some time I am working with Crohn's Disease. One of the problems with the disease is that it is not known what happens. People has found associations with microorganisms, but the relationship between those microorganisms and the patient is still unknown. Also the risk factors for complications is largely unknown.

This post follows up the use of a patient cohort data enrolled for identifying the risk factors of complications and health-care costs in pediatric and adult onset Crohn’s disease. Where we can see some usage of the data and the problems of unclear descriptions when using the same data.

Articles describing the RISK cohort The first mention to the RISK cohort I could found is in this article [1] where they describe a cohort as:
an observational research program that enrolled patients younger than age 17 diagnosed with in flammatory (nonpenetrating, nonstricturing) CD from 2008 through 2012 at 28 pediatric gastroenterology centers in North America. I had 552 patients …
