Adding Content to an Academic Website

12 minute read

Updated:

One thing I haven’t covered in my previous posts on creating and customizing an academic website is how to actually add content to your site. You know, the stuff that’s the reason why people go to your website in the first place? If you’ve followed those guides, your website should be professional looking and already feeling a little bit different from the stock template. However, adding new pages or tweaking the existing pages can be a little intimidating, and I realized I should probably walk through how to do so. Luckily Jekyll’s use of Markdown makes it really easy to add new content! Read more

Combining PDF Documents the Smarter Way

My previous post on combining multiple PDF files had an important caveat that things would end up in the wrong order if you had files with leading ID numbers that started at 1 and ended at 12, you’d end up with PDFs combined in the order 1, 10, 11, 12, 2, 3, …, 9. Read more

This is a followup to my previous post on creating an academic website. If you’ve followed that guide, you should have a website that’s professional-looking and informative, but it’s probably lacking something to really make it feel like your own. There are an infinite number of ways you could customize the academicpages template (many of them far, far beyond my abilities) but I’m going to walk you through the process I used to start tweaking my website. The goal here isn’t to tell you how you should personalize your website, but to give you the tools to learn how to implement whatever changes you want to make. Read more

If you’re an academic, you need a website. Obviously I agree with this since you’re reading this on my website, but if you don’t have one, you should get one. Most universities these days provide a free option, usually powered by WordPress (both WashU and UNC use WordPress for their respective offerings). While these sites are quick to set up and come with the prestige of a .edu URL, they have several drawbacks that have been extensively written on. Read more

GWAS GUI

Genome-wide Association Study (GWAS) in TASSEL (GUI)

4 minute read

Updated:

TASSEL aslo known as Trait Analysis by aSSociation, Evolution and Linkage is a powerful statistical software to conduct association mapping such as General Linear Model (GLM) and Mixed Linear Model (MLM). The GUI (graphical user interface) version of TASSEL is very well built for anyone who does not have a background or experience in working in command line. In this tutorial, I will show how to prepare input files and run assoication analysis in TASSEL. For detailed information on TASSEL, user’s guide and further documentation please visit: https://www.maizegenetics.net/tassel Read more
