Systems Analysis Laboratory

  • Dental info, links
  • Weird in several respects
I wondered about this one. What exactly is a Systems Analysis Laboratory. A search of that phrase on Google led to everything from quality control to environmental sciences. Entering the URL in my browser led to some acronyms that included BDSM and PRSM. A click on the ‘About' button provided no additional help, linking only to a photograph of some people. BDSM, it turns out, is an acronym for Birth Defects System Manager and is a site open only to registered users. PRSM is a site for periodontal research and it is this part of Systems Analysis Laboratory that is most useful. With a glorious set of teeth on the opening page, PRSM leads visitors through all that is dental, from microarray, amazingly enough, to host-parasite interactions. A collection of links at the site appears to be the most useful part of it, mainly because the News section is under construction. Care about your mouth? Then go to Systems Analysis Laboratory. Otherwise, don't bother.
