A Brief Introduction to Genetics is a short documentary film created using motion graphics as the main visual component. It is a film that explores the history of genetics & genomics and the underlying concepts that provide the foundational knowledge that today's research is built upon. The film describes the history of genetics, from Gregor Mendel, to concepts such as DNA and the genetic code. Having introduced the fundamental ideas of genetics, the film moves on to describe the current...
The Bioinformatic Software Bench (BSB) for Drupal allows for a rapid and secure deployment of bioinformatic software. The BLAST, InterProScan, SSAHA2 and annot8r software are provided by default and plugins for new software can be readily written. An innovative graphical user interface guides both end-user and administration of the software, including the secure provision of pre-publication datasets.
