Version control system ideal for the collaborative bioinformatics software development

The new hotness, fast, efficient, distributed version control system ideal for the collaborative development of software...

Github, a source code management (SCM) repository based on git has exited beta and is ready for people to sign up. Git and github offer interesting opportunities for bioinformatics software development, and I think it’s worth taking a few minutes to explore them. There’s a free option too, so it doesn’t cost anything to sign up and play around.

Github builds on git and takes the easy branching feature a step further to create a social software site. I know everyone and their dog is creating a social [insert verb]ing application/site, but you might find that that github’s approach can make a difference in your approach to software development. Github makes it possible to see who is creating branches of your project, visualised as a network, where branch and merge points are shown in a timeline.

Life Science and Informatics

What is this?
is this a new industry?
or a old wine in a new bottle?

Well Life Sciences and Informatics can be anything form computational biology, all omes and omics, core bioinformatics to curation and literature mining, database creation, in the area of biology, chemistry , bio-chem space.

There are number of companies in India and bangalore is the forefront as a major bio-cluster with 20 to 30 companies in this sphere.

now how good are these companies doing?
how good are they in terms of the international markets and how profitable is their business?
what do they do?
their clients?

These are some interesting things that could be discussed in this blog page...
