J.Craig Venter Institute
The J. Craig Venter Institute is a rock star in the field of genomics research, so it is appropriate that its website leaves an equally impressive mark in cyberspace as well. The page design is polished and the site is very well organized, with the homepage divided into sections corresponding to scientist spotlight, institute highlights, publications, news, and blogs. Visitors interested in particular projects/areas of focus of the institute can select from tabs such as genomic medicine, synthetic biology and bioenergy, and infectious disease. Yet, a real gem of the site can be found on the “research” page through the “software” tab. Organized into nine categories that include things like genome analysis and proteomics tools, the website provides 27 software packages. These include both downloadable programs and web-interface computational tools.
