What is the SPrize?
The submission deadline is October 31st, 2012 and final decisions will be made by our international panel of judges which includes Magnus Manske, the original developer of the MediaWiki platform, and lead GENtle architect.
Why is this so important?
The current generation of DNA Design tools (software folks can think of it as an IDE for DNA code) are inaccessible to most people. Confusing download/install/update cycles keep this important technology out of the hands of many potential innovators. We think these tools should be as easy to access as Google or Wikipedia.
With the introduction of GENtle 2.0, Magnus Manske in partnership with Synbiota and Mozilla WebFWD, have created a Web-Based, Open Source DNA Design app that anyone can use by simply clicking a web link. This has enormous potential to bring Biological Design to a whole new audience of innovators around the globe.
Submitted plug-ins can be made to do anything. From productivity plug-ins like DNA aligners, Gibson assembly, primer designers, and blasts, to playful plug-ins like making your DNA code sing or be visualized or interacted with in interesting ways. All plug-ins are welcome!
