No one has a punch-card of an early bioinfo program?

Report on the Use of Computers in Biology and Medicine. 1960. Robert Ledley had trained as a dentist, but moved to computers as they were coming along. Margaret Dayhoff worked with him, and they were the 2 authors on the COMPROTEIN paper in 1962.

Here’s the GCG manual (it cost $4,000 for an academic license in 1995). It's ok with me for you to upload this to wikimedia commons.

I would say this falls into the unconventional file. But it cracks me up, and if someone used it in a presentation I think it would be fun.

Hilarious! :) Who would have thought that someone'd challenge the renowned six-way Venn diagram!

Any idea where we can get one? 

ADD REPLYlink written 2.7 years ago by onuralp180

Well, that's what that whole thread on twitter was about--who launched the organism Venn craze. And the rat genome team thinks it was them. This was their evidence. Apparently this really is a vintage item, I don't think it's available anywhere.

Ah, I see! It should not be too hard to reproduce the figure, I'll give a try. :)

I just came across this paper, and the images were new to me. I love the one of accessing GenBank in 1983. But there is also one of amino acid beads and computer code from 1962.

I love this photo (& this article). I've been planning to use it in an unpublished blog post and have done a little digging into it in the past. By my reckoning, Goad is looking at the human preproenkephalin locus, GenBank J00122, based on the primary sequence and length of the accession.
