  • Grinder (biohacking)
    Grinders are people who apply the hacker ethic to improve their own bodies with do-it-yourself cybernetic devices.
  • DNA microarray
    A DNA microarray (also commonly known as DNA chip or biochip) is a collection of microscopic DNA spots attached to a solid surface.
  • Phenome
    A phenome is the set of all phenotypes expressed by a cell, tissue, organ, organism, or species.
  • Enzyme Commission number
    The Enzyme Commission number (EC number) is a numerical classification scheme for enzymes, based on the chemical reactions they catalyze.
  • Hidden Markov model
    A hidden Markov model (HMM) is a statistical Markov model in which the system being modeled is assumed to be a Markov process with unobserved (hidden) states.
  • [email protected] is a distributed computing project for protein structure prediction on the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) platform, run by the Baker laboratory at the University of Washington.
  • Personal genomics
    Personal genomics is the branch of genomics concerned with the sequencing and analysis of the genome of an individual.
  • Xenobiology
    Xenobiology (XB) is a subfield of synthetic biology, the study of synthesizing and manipulating biological devices and systems.
  • ChIP-on-chip
    ChIP-on-chip (also known as ChIP-chip) is a technology that combines chromatin immunoprecipitation ('ChIP') with DNA microarray ("chip").
  • Attack rate
    In epidemiology, the attack rate is the biostatistical measure of frequency of morbidity, or speed of spread, in an at risk population.
  • SNP array
    In molecular biology and bioinformatics, SNP array is a type of DNA microarray which is used to detect polymorphisms within a population.
  • 100,000 Genomes Project
    The 100,000 Genomes Project is a UK Government project that is sequencing whole genomes from National Health Service patients.
  • 100K Genome Project
    The 100K Pathogen Genome Project was launched in July 2012 by Bart Weimer (UC Davis) as an academic, public, and private partnership.
  • Medical library
    A health or medical library is designed to assist physicians, health professionals, students, patients, consumers, medical researchers, and information specialists in finding health and scientific information to improve, update, assess, or evaluate health care.
  • Sequence database
    In the field of bioinformatics, a sequence database is a type of biological database that is composed of a large collection of computerized ("digital") nucleic acid sequences, protein sequences, or other polymer sequences stored on a computer.
  • List of biopunk works
    This is a list of works classified as biopunk, a subgenre of science fiction and derivative of the cyberpunk movement.
