Image of the week - iPlant's DNA Subway

Developed by iPlant staff at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s Dolan DNA Learning Center (DNALC), DNA Subway presents complex bioinformatics and visualization tools – predominantly open-source software – in an intuitive and appealing interface.

Our regular readers may recall reading about iPlant, the international collaborative project that aims to solve the big questions of plant biology.

This spring, iPlant released beta versions of some of the planned computational environments and software frameworks. According to a press release from the Texas Advanced Computing Center, the DNA Subway, the Discovery Environment, and the Tree of Life visualization tool allow researchers at all levels to take advantage of the national cyberinfrastructure to study plant DNA.

The DNA Subway, pictured above, is the interface through which iPlant users will access a subset of the iPlant tools and data.

To read more about the iPlant beta, please visit the original press release.
