Project of Uppsala University awarded for integrating IT and life science

05.12.2007
On November 29, the Bioclipse project from Uppsala University was awarded the Special Prize of the jury at Trophées du Libre – an international contest for Free Software held in France.

Georg Greve, president of the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) gave the jury’s motivation: “Bioclipse is breaking new ground by integrating different research areas in life science and making the tools available as Free Software for everyone. It is the jury’s expectation that the project will have major impact in the future of life science research and education.”

The Bioclipse project, which has become a major international success, is coordinated by Ola Spjuth, Ph.D. student at Uppsala University, in the research group led by Professor Jarl Wikberg.

“Bioclipse facilitates the use of computers for research and education in life science”, says Ola Spjuth and continues:

“It is very satisfying that we receive international recognition for our research. The award shows that people are appreciating Bioclipse and believe in the project’s future”.

Bioclipse has recently led to several new collaborations with research groups of major impact, both at Uppsala University and internationally, and that this has lead to a new important phase in the continued development of Bioclipse.

“I am confident that this award will make even more people join the project”, says OIa Spjuth.

Professor Wikberg points out the importance of management and analysis of large amounts of data as a central issue in today’s bio-medical research.

“Bioclipse does not only facilitate such information management and analysis, it has also proven to be an excellent way for researchers to collaborate”, says Professor Wikberg.

“These are central issues for any research group that want to remain competitive in today’s life sciences”.

Im Focus: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
