by Manuel Corpas, Project Leader, ELIXIR-UK Technical Coordinator, CorpasLab, The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC).

In this blog entry we discuss the outcomes of the recently held JavaScript for Visualisation Workshop, The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC), Norwich, UK, April 21-22. This workshop brought 26 attendees from around the UK and the continent. The event was open to both core technical members and developers not currently involved in the BioJavaScript (BioJS) project. The workshop was facilitated by Software Sustainability Institute 2016 fellow Manuel Corpas to promote software…

This is the first in a series of blog posts by the Institute's Team Leads to provide an insight into the day-to-day work of the Institute.

The Institute is once again holding its Open Call for Projects, and we're starting to see applications rolling in. So if your project develops research software and you'd like some free expert help, why not consider submitting an application? We work with projects from any discipline, and in the last two months we've helped two groups in the fields of biomolecular simulation and…

With the advent of data-driven research in the life sciences, researchers have relied on data visualisations to generate hypotheses. Many bioinformatics services providers, such as EMBL-EBI or the NCBI, provide a browser-based environment to do this, as well as new ways to visualise biological data. It is important that the software is both high quality and user friendly, which helps researchers compare and contrast, as well as develop, well grounded conclusions. The Software Sustainability Institute worked with BioJS to review their…

Two weeks ago F1000Research launched its article collection series with the publication of the BioJS collection, guest edited by F1000Research editorial board member Manuel Corpas from The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC), UK.

BioJS is an open-source community of developers who are concerned with the handling and visualisation of biological data on the web. Initiated at EMBL-EBI and coordinated by TGAC, it has so far created 39 different software components in a very short space of time. One of the main reasons for building…
