Eagle Launches Latest Edition of "Elements of Bioinformatics"


3/27/2013 9:34:49 AM

Cambridge, Wednesday 27 March 2013 ... Eagle, the UK’s leading bioinformatics consultancy, has launched the latest version of its ‘Elements of Bioinformatics’ table, a visual representation of all the tools currently available to bioinformaticians conducting research in this area.

The updated ‘Elements’ table was launched at the 3rd Eagle Symposium in Cambridge last week and shows all of the tools or elements currently available as well as the dates they became available.

The table means you won’t ever get confused by the differences between ENSEMBL, PRANK, BLAT and PARTEK, and also includes information on when the various elements became available. A slider in the table also allows you to go back to 1970 and see what tools were available back then, and compare the progress that has been made in bioinformatics through the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s and right up to the present day.

Richard Holland, Chief Business Officer at Eagle, said: “Although a relatively new area of research, this table shows the progress that has been made in developing bioinformatics as an important research tool. From just the one tool in 1971, to the wide range now we now have, this shows just how active the community has been in developing the right tools to support life sciences research.”

The interactive table can be found at http://elements.eaglegenomics.com/.

Richard added: “We are very keen to hear from the bioinformatics community to make sure this table is fully up to date. With the sector evolving so rapidly and new tools and techniques appearing daily, we want to make sure we don’t miss anything. Please do contact us to make sure we get all of the new ‘elements’.”
