Like Linux? Go for a Bio-Flavor

,----[ Quote ]
| Debian Med: A Debian Linux-flavored operating system for medical research and 
| practices. 
| BioBrew: a collection of open-source applications for life scientists which 
| can be used to create a distribution customized for both cluster and 
| bioinformatics computing.  


Distributions: From Fedora 12 to openSUSE

,----[ Quote ]
| The major Linux distributors have released kernel updates to close a critical 
| security vulnerability, a pre-release version of Fedora 12 was made available 
| and Debian wants more structured release cycles. There's also been commotion  
| about a default desktop for openSUSE, while Novell announced the formation of 
| a dedicated team for the community distribution. The CentOS project seems to 
| have overcome its internal problems and finally released version 4.8 of the 
| free Red Hat clone.      



New born BioPuppy Linux for Bioinformatics

,----[ Quote ]
| BioPuppy OS is an electronic workbench for bio-informatics and computational
| biology. It has been designed to meet the needs of beginners. BioPuppy is
| available as a live CD cum installation CD [and in USB Pen drive] and
| containing all the required software to boot the computer with ready to use
| bio-informatics tools.



Open source synthetic biology

,----[ Quote ]
| Not everyone within synthetic biology takes the open-source approach, Andrew
| Hessel, an iGEM consultant who recruits teams from Canadian universities,
| told me, but the driving force behind it is iGEM and MIT (Rettberg works with
| renowned hacker-turned-synthetic biologist Tom Knight). Hessel likened the
| atmosphere to the time when computers were first becoming cheap enough to be
| affordable by anyone who wanted one, and young, bright kids began to play
| around with code.


Biology Goes Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| Some of the world's biggest drug companies are finding that
| their genetic research is worth more to them if they give it away.


Open Lab

,----[ Quote ]
| The open source wave could soon power drug discovery initiatives in the
| country. A decentralised, web-based initiative is emerging that would enable
| scientists from laboratories, universities, institutes, and drug Companies to
| work together in discovering new drugs for diseases like tuberculosis (TB),
| malaria, various types of cancer, AIDS, Chikungunya, Kala-azar, dengue fever,
| etc.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
