DistilBio: Tell us what you think

It has been two months since we launched DistilBio, our semantic search engine for the life sciences. We have had quite a bit of traction: so a big thanks to all those that visited. To those haven’t been there yet, we would be thrilled if you checked it out.

As we add new features and data to DistilBio, we would like this process to be user driven. This means that we would like you to tell us what you want. Searches across public data will remain free.

Input that we are specifically looking for:

1. Are there specific databases you would like us to add?
2. Are there specific types of data you would like us to add? Fore.g. gene expression data, clinical data etc.?
3. Are there specific analysis tools that you would like us to add e.g. Blast, Clustalw etc.?
4. Would a chemistry structure search be useful?
5. How could we make the UI better to enhance the user experience?
6. Could you we enhance the tool so it would suit specific communities centered on a model organism, a target or a disease?
7. Would the tool be useful to search across private data?
8. Anything else you can think of...

Any inputs would be welcome. You can respond on this blog, or write to me at kalpana@metaome.com

Thanks,
Kalpana Krishnaswami,
CEO and Founder

Yes, I think that would be nice: a link from the front page listing all data sources, so that people know up front where the data came from.

DistilBio's (http://distilbio.com) autosuggest now displays the no. of matches as u type!

We're still figuring out how to improve this feature, so any feedback would be extremely useful :)
