Bioruby Presentation

Last weekend, me and my friend Manu presented "Bioruby..Ruby in the Living World" in ruby conference India 2013, in Pune.

Bioruby is great Bioinformatics tool which helps to process biological data and analyze it. One of the greatest contributions from Bioruby is Biogems, which like any other rubygems helps to perform modular approaches  in order to perform specific functionality. One such gem is bio-ucsc-api gem, which helps to fetch record from UCSC DB and the best part is the gem has been implemented using the Actice Record Framework thereby easing the record fetch, instead of complex sql queries. We explained the basic concepts of Gene, DNA. RNA, Amino-acids, Human Genome Project and how these huge data are stored and analyzed by the famous Bioinformatics tools like BLAST, Fasta and how Bioruby interacts with the different biological databases like Genbank, Swissprot etc.

Here are the slides for the Presentation:
