Inspired by Keith Robison's post on 'cheat sheets', what would you put on a cheat sheet for bioinformatics? This might include one-line scripts, conversion factors, handy rules of thumb, etc.
Some of Keith's suggestions, which have a biology slant:
- IUPAC ambiguity codes for nucleotides:
- Amino acid single letter codes.
- SI prefixes in order.
- Powers of 2.
- Tm calculation estimation using G+C and A+T counts.
- 1 human genome ~= 7 pg of DNA
- 1 bp = 660 daltons
