    Genetics and Web 2.0 Genetics and Web 2.0 Presentation Transcript

    • Genetics and Web 2.0
        • Bertalan Meskó
        • University of Debrecen
        • Faculty of Medicine
    • Why me?
        • My English medical blog ( http://scienceroll.com ) had 210,000 visitors in 5 months. More than 125 medical blogs link to me. I've been a host of Grand rounds, the weekly blog carnival of the best of the medical blogosphere.
        • My Hungarian medical blog ( http://mediq.blog.hu ) had 60,000 viewers in 2 months, more than 350 blogs link to me.
        • In Medgadget’s Weblog Awards , in the best new medical blog category, Scienceroll got special mention.
        • In the English Wikipedia , I'm the maintainer of the medicine portal, medicine wikiproject, medical collaboration of the week and I'm the creator and maintainer of the medical genetics wikiproject.
        • Brandon Keim, a well-known, freelance science and culture writer and news intern at Nature Medicine asked me to give him an interview about my experiences in Wikipedia and to talk about the future of online encyclopedias. ( News@Nature 13, 231 - 233 or Wikimedia; Nature Medicine; March of 2007 )
    • Why me?
      • An interview made by Nicholas Genes was published on Medscape journal . (Med Student Helping Shape Medicine on the 'Net)
      • Why have all of these things happened to me?
      • Because the topic is mostly uncovered and the importance of this field is exponentially growing:
      • In 2006, Time's Person of the Year was Yo u, the user of World Wide Web .
    • What is Web 2.0?
      • Web 2.0 is a collection of second generation services which are based on communities.
      • It doesn't differ physically from the web itself, but has many advantages .
    • What are these advantages?
      • Saves time (RSS, Podcast, Videocast)
      • Makes it possible to share knowledge and experience (Community sites; Wikipedia)
      • Makes it easier to follow the changes of our field of interest (PubMed RSS, Blogs)
    • Web 1.0  Web 2.0 Google AdSense DoubleClick  Google Docs MicroSoft Word Tags - De.licio.us Favourites  Wikipedia Britannica Online  Content follows the user ( RSS , Podcast) User follows the content  Blogs, comments Static websites, homepages  Search ( Google ) Portal ( Yahoo )  Web 2.0 Web 1.0 
    • What kind of webtools could ease the work of physicians, researchers and users seeking medical information on the field of genetics?
    • Blog RSS Podcast, Videocast Wikis Medical search Content sharing sites Online communities Companies, E-book Online writing
    • Medical blogosphere
      • A blog is a user-generated website where entries are made in journal style and displayed in a reverse chronological order.
      • According to Technorati , there more than 75 million blogs in the world.
      • Subgroups: blogs of physicians, hospitals, nurses, medical students, health care lawyers (blawgers)
      • There are hundreds of medical blogs, and the number is still growing. The number of genetic blogs is about 50-100.
    • Why to deal with blogs?
      • Articles of blogs are not referenced in medical papers yet, but medical blogs have more and more readers:
    • Why to deal with blogs?
      • The number of blogs is duplicated every 5-6 months, so in September of 2007, every 50 th person in the world will have a blog
      • According to the surveys of HealthCare Vox and iHealthBeat :
        • 93% of medical bloggers have been blogging less than 3 years, 52% have been blogging less than a year
        • 8.9 million US adults reported reading health blogs on-line
      • British Medical Journal and Medscape features medical bloggers many times.
        • Unique genetic blogs
      • Genetics and Health : popular genetics
      • Sandwalk : a professor of biochemistry writing about genetics
      • Epigenetics : everything about epigenetics
      • Nature Genetics : the official blog called Free Association
      • The Personal Genome : genomics as a medical tool
      • RNA Bioinformatics : a professor of Iowa about bioinformatics
      • News on Genetics : a blog about the new result of genetics

      • DNA Direct Talk : your genes, your health, your choices
      • OMMBID Blog : provides a forum for geneticists, genetics researchers, educators, and students
        • Blog carnivals
      • But you can't run through all of these blogs day by day, so medical and genetic bloggers collect the best posts for you, the best of the weekly genetic blogosphere:
      • Grand rounds : the weekly rotating carnival of the best of the medical blogosphere
      • Gene Genie : a blog carnival on genes, clinical genetics and the news of genomics
      • Mendel's Garden : a blog carnival devoted to genetics
    • Blog RSS Podcast, Videocast Wikis Medical search Content sharing sites Online communities Companies, E-book Online writing
    • What is RSS ?
      • RSS = R eally S imple S yndication
      • RSS is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated digital content, such as blogs, news feeds or podcasts.
      • Programs known as feed readers or aggregators can check a list of feeds on behalf of a user and display any updated articles that they find.
    • What is RSS good for?
      • To follow the search results of PubMed
      • To follow medical journals, medical blogs
      • How to read it?
        • Via Bloglines.com , Netvibes.com or Google reader , web browsers
        • Via program: feedreader.com
      • An easy and comfortable method to follow the changes of our field of interest.
        • Create PubMed RSS to follow search results automatically
    • How to subscribe to a blog's RSS? Click on the Feed icon!
    • Copy the link of the feed
    • Insert it into your feedreader program, browser or online feedreader
    • And use it!
      • Track your favourite blogs, journals without wasting time, without visiting dozens of blogs or journals every day.
      • Let the information come to you!
    • Blog RSS Podcast, Videocast Wikis Medical search Content sharing sites Online communities Companies, E-book Online writing
    • Podcast and videocast
    • Podcast
      • PodCast: Po rtable broa dcast
      • A portable audio file (or video file: videocast) that you can listen to while working
      • Most of the medical journals maintain podcasts (and now more and more medical blogs do)
      • Odeo.com collects all the podcasts of genetic blogs.
    • Videocast
      • National Institute of Health VideoCasting
      • More than 50 genetic videocasts, including
      • Genome Analysis
      • Human Genome
    • Blog RSS Podcast, Videocast Wikis Medical search Content sharing sites Online communities Companies, E-book Online writing
        • Wikipedia
      • Wikipedia is the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.
      • Why is it important?
        • 4 million users
        • 1.7 million articles
        • More than 200 languages
        • For many searches, the Wikipedia article is among the first results ( Google loves content )
    • Reliability of Wikipedia
      • Here, I listed 6 articles of the List of causes of death by rate and counted the number of references and external links in them. What I wanted to show is that Wikipedia is improving on the field of reliability (and never forget that Wikipedia is a work in progress ):
    • Genetics in Wikipedia
      • Category of genetics (several thousands of articles)
      • List of contributors:
        • @ Medical genetics wikiproject
        • @ Medicine wikiproject
      • Manual of style (medicine-related articles)
        • Guideline of the medical genetics wikiproject
      • Images of the genetics category from Wikimedia Commons
    • Blog RSS Podcast, Videocast Wikis Medical search Content sharing sites Online communities Companies, E-book Online writing
    • Medical search engines
      • Search engines (like Google , Yahoo ) don't select among sources, that's why many of the medical search results can't be relevant.
      • But medical search engines use peer-reviewed sources and sites selected by experts providing the most relevant and reliable medical information of the best quality.
    • Medical search engines
      • Healthline
      • Mammahealth
      • Medhunt
      • Google Health
      • OmniMedicalsearch : a metasearch engine for the medical search engines
      • Genetic Search Toolbox
    • Blog RSS Podcast, Videocast Wikis Medical search Content sharing sites Online communities Companies, E-book Online writing
    • Content sharing sites

      • Clinical Cases : collection of cases
    • Blog RSS Podcast, Videocast Wikis Medical search Content sharing sites Online communities Companies, E-book Online writing
    • Online community sites
      • User driven social content websites. You can submit articles and others will read and rate your submission. So the community works as a screening system to feature the most important or most interesting medical articles.
      • Digg.com/Health and Science.reddit.com
    • Online community sites
      • Can laypeople determine properly a scientific article's scientific value? Probably not... What to do?
      • BioWizard : A Digg-like site created for physicians and researchers.
        • BioWizard users submit relevant, timely research articles they have found to be useful and interesting to the BioWizard site. Just perform your usual PubMed search on BioWizard and submit your favorite research. The articles you submit are then read by the rest of the community who promote articles they feel are deserving of recognition. The best articles in a research field are brought to the top page for all to read and discuss.
