  • A great deal of scientific content
  • Poor genome browser, can’t access data in app
Platform: iPad  
Cost: $0.99

It should come as no surprise to all of you slang-savvy readers out there that the Jane-Ome Project provides scientific information about the medicinal uses of marijuana. This includes a genome browser for information collected as part of the cannabis genome project pioneered by Medicinal Genomics. (Disappointingly, however, the “access data” feature of the app does not actually allow one to access the sequencing data within the app. Rather, one must give his/her email address in order to be sent an email containing a link to access the data online.) Beyond the genome browser, the app contains a number of factoids related to medicinal marijuana and a newsfeed of related news stories. Finally, there is also a section of the app dedicated to scientific studies and articles.
