These time-lapse videos really show just how remote we can be from something if its temporal pace differs from our own. We need to see more of these to remind humans that even if it appears stationary (or very fast)  it has a life and behaviour that we can relate to. It is not just a slimy thing that we can dismiss as irrelevant to us.

This new #iOptik system uses contact lenses and glasses to project images directly onto your eyes. The engineers who built it hope this technology will eventually replace smartphones. What do you think? http://bit.ly/1iXSj8q

The most detailed reconstruction of the mysterious and tiny world of HIV

A team from Visual Science has given us a new and revealing look inside HIV. Lead by Ivan Konstantinov, the group has built the most detailed 3D model of the virus to date. To create the image, the team consulted over 100 leading science journals and then reconstructed viral proteins from x-ray images. With this information in hand, their team of 3D graphics designers were able to create an accurate and detailed image in about 3 months. More here: goo.gl/2wnBH7

# International Human Solidarity Day
20 Dec 2013.

“ Global challenges must be managed in a way that distributes the costs and burdens fairly in accordance with basic principles of equity and social justice. Those who suffer or who benefit least deserve help from those who benefit most.” 

International Human Solidarity Day, an opportunity to reflect on the trans-formative power of solidarity between peoples of the world.

Story
Tagline
I train people in Bioinformatics and I provide support services.
Introduction
I studied Electronics and Telecommunications Enginering but got attracted by Biology and Computer Science. In the early 1990s I started to create Bioinformatics resources for scientists, at a time where access to computing services and  data was a ajor obstacle, Gradually I understood that the major obstacle is training and so I developed GTPB to regularly provide affordable access to learning by direct transfer of skills in short, intensive, hands-on courses.
